dc.description.abstractSmall island countries like those in the Pacific are most vulnerable to the effects of climate change. The likelihood of extreme weather events such as sea level rise, extreme rainfall, droughts, increased and intensified tropical cyclones, and increase in sea surface temperature is expected to adversely impact Pacific DMCs economically, socially and environmentally. Alongside having to address climate change issues are the increasing and recurring urbanization issues which are exacerbated by climate change. These issues cannot be tackled in isolation; they mutually reinforce the effects to urban areas if left unattended.
