The Real Cost of Climate Change
While wealthy nations quibble over a price for carbon, the people living in small islands states are experiencing the real cost of climate change. Islands First assists small island states confront the threats of climate change by (1) building the capacity of their UN missions, (2) creating and sustaining strategic networks of scientific, environmental, and policy experts, and (3) helping them plan political strategies for advancing their environmental agenda. | learn more
