This interim guidance explains how to account for projected changes to extreme daily rainfall intensity in Pacific island countries in feasibility studies, climate risk and adaptation assessments, and infrastructure design.

It presents data on changes to extreme daily rainfall intensity in Pacific island countries over the last few decades and advises on accounting for future trends given the impacts of climate change. It notes that, while research is underway to address data gaps, guidance on accounting for changes in extreme rainfall intensity in the Pacific is required now. This publication therefore provides advice based on the best available data and scientific understanding for the Pacific region.
