October 25 and 26, 2012, ADAP hosted a meeting of 47 agricultural professionals from Alaska, Hawaii, American Samoa, Guam, Northern Mariana Islands, Micronesia, Marshall Islands, and Palau, and representatives from the Pacific Land Grant Alliance– a consortium of the Pacific Land Grant Schools. Day One of the workshop was devoted to technical presentations of ongoing climate-related extension or research projects. The diversity of the presentations highlighted the many ways that climate change can affect the Pacific region, from impacts on agriculture, plants, and insects, to water use, tourism, and the local economy. Day Two of the workshop was focused on change adaption, and was devoted to facilitated discussions of regional needs and areas for regional collaborative research/extension. During the discussions, we utilized a unique pictorial note taking method, to further spark ideas and innovative thought. This publication, Summary Report for the Pacific Climate Scenarios & Impacts on Agriculture Meeting, contains the meeting agenda, the final report of the ADAP Pilot study evaluating General Circulation Model (GCM) performance, meeting attendee list, notes from the facilitated discussions, and follow-up materials supplied by the newly formed, regional working group.
