This guidebook provides information about the risks associated with climate change, as well as providing ideas, tools and techniques for those who need to start taking action today to prepare. It is primarily aimed at government officers who would like to learn more about climate change, its impacts and how to start preparing.

Specifically, it has been written to facilitate incorporation of climate change into planning and development activities on small islands. The general approach described is also useful for other geographic locations, enabling any reader to apply the recommendations and develop their own climate change adaptation plans.
