Climate Change and Pacific Island Food Systems


Challenge

Changing weather, rising seas, islands lying just a few feet above sea level: the Pacific Island Region is right on the frontline of climate change.

This report, produced by the CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security, set out to show the future impacts of climate change on food, fishing and farming in the Pacific islands.

Our brief was to produce a set of visuals for the report. The challenge was to collaborate with a team of specialists to convey complex and often scientific information in a way that was both accurate and easy to understand.

Solution

We produced a set of visuals – a mixture of infographics and data visualisations – to be used in the final report alongside text, illustrations and photographs. Our graphics illustrate the forecast impacts of climate change on the Pacific region in the future: everything from tuna fishery production to crop production is likely to be affected as the climate changes.

Results

We are proud that the report was also picked up by the Huffington Post.
