The focus of this resource is on the effects of changes in air and sea surface temperature, rainfall, sea-level rise and extreme weather events on island environments, economies and people. It is vital to enhance individual and community skills to adapt to these changes – in other words, to reduce risks and maximize potential benefits.

MODIS (or Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer) is a key instrument aboard the Terra (originally known as EOS AM-1) and Aqua (originally known as EOS PM-1) satellites. Terra's orbit around the Earth is timed so that it passes from north to south across the equator in the morning, while Aqua passes south to north over the equator in the afternoon. Terra MODIS and Aqua MODIS are viewing the entire Earth's surface every 1 to 2 days, acquiring data in 36 spectral bands, or groups of wavelengths (see MODIS Technical Specifications).

This report presents the outcomes of a Whole-of-Island Integrated Vulnerability Assessment (WoI-IVA) conducted on Abaiang Atoll in Kiribati in September 2013. The report assesses the socio-ecological context of Abaiang Atoll in relation to climate change and disaster risks, and examines the capacity of the atoll community to reduce risks and adapt to the impact of environmental change.

This Kiribati Joint Implementation Plan on Climate Change and Disaster Risk Management (KJIP) has been
developed to reduce the vulnerabilities to the impacts of climate change and disaster risks and to coordinate
priorities so that every single dollar spent will derive maximum value.

The people of Abaiang face many challenges in daily life. Human habitation on the atoll is only possible due to the presence of an underground freshwater lens. This report describes adaptive and coping capacity of Abaiang and the sensitivity of livelihood-based resources to climate change and disaster risks.
