Addressing information gaps on the effects of climate change on tuna fisheries and improving coordination between international and domestic climate change processes

The project will address known information gaps on the effects of climate change on tuna fisheries, including updating the oceanic component of the ‘vulnerability of tropical Pacific fisheries and aquaculture to climate change’ synthesis; evaluating climate indicators; preparing WCPO and national climate report cards and ‘dashboards’; and enhancing collaboration between relevant regional and national agencies to contribute to the International Panel on Climate Change processes.
