Regional Climate Information: Small Islands
Monday, 8th November 2021

The event will highlight the recent findings of the IPCC AR6 WGI report on the Small Islands. The first part of the event will consist of plenary presentations that will feature a regional overview followed by more focused presentations on the climate information in the Caribbean, Pacific and Western Indian Ocean islands, as well as on regional sea level rise and ocean climate, and tropical cyclones. There will also be a presentation on the Interactive Atlas to discuss the regional synthesis and demonstrate how participants can obtain regional information.

The second part of the event will consist of three breakout groups (BOG), divided per subregion (Caribbean, Pacific, and Western Indian Ocean), which will facilitate interaction between WGI authors and participants, providing the opportunity to raise and respond to questions, and discuss other comments or concerns. Each BOG will be led by at least two facilitators, including a member of the Atlas team. A rapporteur from each group will identify three key topics raised in the discussions and report back to plenary.
