With funding from the Rockefeller Foundation and technical and logistical support from Pact, SEA Change is a maturing virtual Community of Practice (CoP) focused on the monitoring and evaluation of climate change interventions in Asia, and beyond. Where the community was initially focused on Southeast Asia - hence the 'SEA' in SEA Change - the focus now includes the entire Asian continent in its widest definition. The SEA Change CoP is one answer to the growing needs found in the intersection of monitoring and evaluation and the implementation of climate change interventions.
The Secretariat of the Pacific Community Applied Geoscience and Technology Division (SOPAC) has been established as an outcome of the regional institutional framework reform process called for by the Pacific Island Leaders Forum.

The Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme (SPREP) has been charged by the governments and administrations of the Pacific region with the protection and sustainable development of the region's environment. SPREP advocates and coordinates activities on four strategic priorities, including climate change, in Pacific small island developing states.
This initiative is to build a partnership between small island developing States (SIDS) on a range of development issues including climate change. The adverse effects of climate change and sea-level rise present significant risks to the development of SIDS. The aims of SIDSnet include tracking international meetings; contributing to filling gaps in data availability on sustainable development; and facilitating partnerships and motivating action in support of sustainable development for SIDS.
The Climate and Disaster Risk Reduction community brings together people involved and interested in the field of disaster risk reduction and climate change, working from grass-root level to the top national level; interact as a group and build connections, familiarity and trust. The Climate and Disaster Risk Reduction (CDRR) Community is Bangladesh's second Solution Exchange community and will provide knowledge services to harness Bangladesh's vast knowledge pool on climate change and disaster risk reduction for more effective and smarter ways of doing the business – from policy, planning o
Surging Seas is a report and a map that provides information about coastal flood hazards and sea level rise, and gives local meaning to global warming. Its goal is to help citizens, leaders, businesses and organisations of every kind navigate the shifting waters of our world.
