    Abstract

    The purpose of this chapter is to bring to the fore implications of climate change on the status of crop production in the Pacific Islands region. The Pacific Island people derive their livelihood or secure their food security from natural resources sectors including agriculture,forestry, fisheries and aquaculture; that is, their livelihood is depended on the environment. Any threat or impact on their environment will have profound impact on people’s livelihoods. The PICTs limited land resources are under constant pressure from many factors including climate change. Agricultural crops contribute substantially to people’s food security status.
