Abstract
An East-West Center paper cites conditions and responses in the Marshalls in considering potential Pacific-wide strategies. Quick take:<br>- While extreme weather events and sea-level rise pose the most visible threats to low-lying Pacific atolls, climate change also affects overall public health.<br>- Changing climate has resulted in direct, indirect and diffuse health impacts in the Marshall Islands.<br>- Migration can be one result of the complex interaction between climate change, environmental degradation and changes in health.<br>- The Marshall Islands' response to climate change may serve as a blueprint for other island nations.
