The project is made possible by the generous support of the American people Other funding comes from The Nature Conservancy (TNC), Micronesia Conservation Trust (MCT), and the Pacific Island Marine Protected Area Community (PIMPAC). The Workshop aims to develop outline for a video toolkit that supports (1) communicating climate change impacts and understanding potential impacts to local communities, and (2) identifying early actions that communities can take to build resilience of natural and social systems (e.g livelihoods, food security, water security, culture, health and safety,) to these changes.
It also aims to develop outlines for two inspiring local case studies (i.e HelenReef and Nimpal Marine Conservation Area) of communities who have taken action to manage local resources and build resilience of their communities and natural resources. [/restrict]
