Video: Palau trial experience – impacts Analysis (IA) Methodology reflection

The story of resiliency for communities in Palau requires looking back in time to learn form the impact of previous climate change adaptation work to inform future planning. Palau is one of four countries that cooperated with the field testing of an Impacts Analysis Methodology as part of the GCCA+ SUPA Project.

The Palau National Climate Change Policy 2015 identified agriculture and water security among the areas requiring priority action. In 2021, a suite of impact methodology tools including field assessments, social surveys, spatial detection tools and climate profiles were field tested in selected trial communities in Palau. 

This video highlights the efforts geared towards building resiliency and how different agencies learn and view the potential of the methodology to enhance their programme of work at national and state level.
