APIA, Samoa --- The Regional Expert Roundtable on Climate Services for Agriculture and Food and Nutrition Security opened in Samoa today. It brings together a range of experts from the agricultural, climate change and weather sectors to provide guidance on how climate services can effectively contribute to food and nutrition security.
From 1982 to 2012, there were 615 natural disasters recorded in the Pacific, three quarters of which were weather related, according to a study conducted by the Secretariat of the Pacific Community. Findings from the 5th Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change tell us that our climate will continue to change in the future.
