Infopoint: Climate change & atolls in the Pacific

Natural formations are amongst the most exposed to the effects of climate change and the risk of submersion. Moreover, the atolls of the Pacific are amongst the least well-known and often forgotten in international negotiations. In the run up to COP21, the French Development Agency commissioned a study at the end of 2014 which aims to identify and compare the factors that determine social and environmental resilience. The  results from the studies of Micronesia, Kiribati and the archipelago of Tuamotu (French Polynesia) were presented at the Infopoint. Gérard Van Driessche,  Geo-coordinator for the Pacific, DEVCO H2 introduced the topic. François Gaulme, Research Officer at the French Development Agency and Guigone Camus, Anthropologist from ‘Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales’ (EHESS) presented the results of the research.
