Work on a weather station is underway to help Tokelau build its knowledge of and resilience to climate change, Civil Defence Minister Kris Faafoi announced today.
“The weather station will help Tokelau forecast and record changes in the weather,” Kris Faafoi said.
“Over time the data on temperatures, rainfall and wind will help us identify and address the impacts of climate change on Tokelau.”
The station is part of a broader programme of work on disaster resilience that the New Zealand aid programme is funding in Tokelau, and is a joint project by the Ministry of Civil Defence & Emergency Management (MCDEM) and Metservice.
