The Asian Development Bank (ADB) conducted this study of the economics of climate change in the Pacific to assist its Pacific developing member countries (DMCs) in adapting to climate risks. After an extensive review of past and ongoing research efforts on climate change, the study focused on identifying and quantifying its economic impacts on the Pacific DMCs. It used the best available methodological tools to assess adverse effects of climate change particularly on agriculture; on fisheries and coral reefs; on tourism; and on the health and well-being of the populace.
