New Interactive Website: Agroforestry in the Climate of the Marshall Islands

Pacific Islands CASC-supported researchers create a "Green Dashboard" to present Marshallese agricultural producers with climate information that may help them adapt their growing practices to changing climate conditions.

Pacific Islands CASC-funded researchers compiled traditional agriculture and environmental knowledge of Marshall Islanders, and combined it with information on El Niño/La Niña weather pattern effects in the region to create a living web resource called “Agroforestry in the Climate of the Marshall Islands”, or the “Green Dashboard”, for local users to access climate information in both English and Marshallese. The website provides easy to access decision-making tools for government officials, public agencies, and citizens striving to mitigate the impacts of climate change and sea level rise that are affecting their agroforestry systems, coasts, and resources.

This work was supported by the Pacific Islands CASC project, Developing an Agroforestry Dashboard for the Marshall Islands
