The Integrating Climate Change Risks in the Agriculture and Health Sectors (ICCRA&HS) project will help the Government of Samoa develop an integrated approach to address climate change impacts through adaptive actions. The project’s main components aim to both further understand the effects of climate change in the agriculture and health sectors in Samoa, and to inform future adaptation planning and actions.
These goals will be accomplished by:
- Collecting and exchanging climate data between sector professionals and regional climate observation networks;
- Obtaining an estimate of the damage to Samoan population and economy of climate change related risks in the agriculture and health sectors. This will help quantify the benefits of adaptation measures;
- Identifying and evaluating alternative adaptation measures applicable to Samoa;
- Revising agricultural management plans and strategies, national soil and crop maps, and public health plans;
- Providing the Samoan authorities and institutions with an effective tool to estimate the future potential damage to crops and farms and to plan future adaptation investments based on different risk scenarios;
- Craft an early warning system to prevent significant damage to the agriculture and health sectors
