Adapting to climate change in the Pacific

 The NEEL blog series showcases interviews with academics and environment professionals on topical issues in environmental sustainability and climate change research and practice.

Our Media Exposure, Climate Anxiety and Mental Health (MECAMH) project investigates key influences on negative emotional responses to climate change, as well as how negative emotions relate to mental wellbeing and pro-environmental action around the world.

Few areas of the world are as vulnerable to climate change as the Pacific Island countries. With an international team of collaborators, we are examining psychological adaptation to climate change among young people in Fiji and the Solomon Islands.
