        From Ridge to Reef: Adapting to a Changing Climate

        Explore Pacific high island and atoll ecosystems, learn about the threats to island resources and residents, and discover how communities are preserving their future, in this interactive activity adapted from the Micronesia Conservation Trust. These ecosystems -- terrestrial, coastal, and reef -- provide many services to island communities. However, they also face threats from both human activities and climate change. The interactive activity details the services and the threats. It also provides real-life examples of Pacific Island communities that are already experiencing changes and taking action. These actions, or adaptations, are designed to strengthen their ecosystems and the overall resilience of their island. This resource is part of the Climate Change and the Pacific Islands collection.

        Adapted from Adapting to a Changing Climate (Booklet)/ Micronesia Conservation Trust.
