Island nations are at the forefront of climate change and Guam is no exception.
After experiencing hotter days and erratic weather in increasing frequency, the Government of Guam Climate Change Resilience Commission held a meeting with government officials earlier today to prepare for the future.
The meeting included a day-long workshop, which included presentations on the latest information about Guam’s climate conditions.
Members of the commission also outlined its goals and were given the chance to consult with subject experts to compile information to develop an assessment of the island, according to Dr. Wendy Miles of the Pacific Islands Regional Climate Assessment program.
“We are working on the Guam climate assessment in close coordination with local experts in Guam so that it can be specially tailored to Guam’s needs,” Miles said.
The assessment would help lawmakers be better informed to produce policies that are cognizant of climate change.
