Extreme events like floods and drought, higher temperature and higher carbon dioxide concentration in the atmosphere have major negative impacts on livelihoods and plants. This will lead to many problems which include plant diseases and water sarcacity which could possibly drop food security status in a particular region.
It is important for the Government of Kiribati to monitor climate impacts and disseminate relevant information for informing local communities for a prior preparation for adaptive measures.
