Monitoring Adaptation of Coastal Fisheries – Climate Change Policy & Practice

Some work being done by the the Secretariat of the Pacific Community (SPC), in collaboration with the French Institute of Research for Development (IRD), hosted a training course on monitoring adaptation of coastal fisheries to climate change during the first week of September, in Noumea, New Caledonia. The course was a component of the Australian Government-funded “Monitoring the vulnerability and adaptation of coastal fisheries to climate change” project.

According to SPC, the project aims to detect possible changes in coastal fishery productivity and determine the extent to which these changes are connected to climate rather than to other pressures on the resource. By training Pacific Island fisheries officers to use age determination techniques and determine reef fish growth parameters, fisheries officers are expected to be able to contribute data to the project.

The course was attended by participants from Nauru, Kiribati, the Marshall Islands, Tuvalu and the Federated States of Micronesia.
