The University of Guam Pacific Islands Climate Adaptation Science Center will host a town hall forum on climate assessment reports from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. today.
Two representatives from a Hawaii-based program that assesses climate variability and change in the region will make presentations during the forum to share recent critical climate assessment reports for the island.
Program Manager Wendy Miles and Sustained Climate Assessment Specialist Zena Grecni of the Pacific Regional Integrated Sciences and Assessments Program will summarize key findings from the Fourth National Climate Assessment (NCA4) and the Pacific Islands Regional Climate Assessment (PIRCA).
Highlights of the NCA4, which was released in November 2018, will touch on the assessments made for Hawaii and U.S.-affiliated Pacific Islands while the PIRCA report will share the latest developments of climate summaries specific to Guam. According to UOG, this report is expected to be finalized this year.
The public is invited to attend and learn more about how these findings relate to Guam’s experiences of climate vulnerability and change.
The forum will be held at the UOG College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences Lecture Hall.
