INNOVA Ezine issue 8 released: ‘Climate and Earth Observation Services for Small Islands’

The French West Indies (Guadeloupe and Martini-que), as one of the INNOVA hubs, are representative for other Small Island States around the globe. Even though Small Island States are distinct in their geographical, biophysical, socio-economic and cultural characteristics, they share common challenges with respect to risk reduction and climate change adaptation.

With this Ezine we want to highlight the need for specific climate services, which are tailored to the needs of Small Island States and account for their specific challenges for climate adaptation.

A case-study example from Zanzibar will present the usage of newest technology to identify areas affected by salt-water intrusion and sea inundation – a challenge, which is common to many Small Island States.
