Description

Climate Risk Profile for Kiribati prepared by John E. Hay and Associates Ltd, New Zealand, under ADB regional technical assistance on Mainstreaming Environmental Considerations in Economic and Development Planning Processes in Selected Pacific Developing Member Countries.

This climate risk profile (CRP) is based on observed data for Betio, South Tarawa (Latitude 1 21 N; Longitude 172 56 E). While data for South Tarawa clearly cannot characterize the climate conditions for all of Kiribati, they do provide a general indication of current climate risks facing the country. The CRP can be extended by analyzing data from other locations in Kiribati. This Climate Risk Profile for Kiribati was prepared under ADB regional technical assistance on Mainstreaming Environmental Considerations in Economic and Development Planning Processes in Selected Pacific Developing Member Countries.
