Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea: Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment

Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea: Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment

Overview

In Papua New Guinea, as in many areas in the Pacific, urban populations are often located in hazard-prone areas in the coastal zone. Storm surges and sea-level rise can affect settlements, food production and infrastructure. A lack of basic services such as clean water supply and solid waste management can exacerbate the negative effects of climate change. Amid all this, the poorest are almost always the most vulnerable, as they have less access to infrastructure, basic services and social safety nets in the event of a disaster
