    Abstract

    For many years issues of climate and environmental change have been mainly seen from a perspective of mitigation : what can we do to prevent climate and environmental change from happening? But the major questions, ever since the scientific community acknowledged that climate change is real, have now changed fundamentally. Today’s major concerns are: how can societies adjust, adapt to or at least cope with the impacts arising from climate and environmental change? Research on climate and environmental change and the impact on food and livelihood security needs to incorporate these changes. This not only has to do with changing perspectives about climate change, biodiversity conservation and environmental research; it also has to acknowledge emerging new paradigms in the field of food and livelihood security research that have been developed over the past 30 years, and that have much relevance for Pacific Island countries.
