Barnett, J. (2011). Dangerous climate change in the Pacific Islands: food production and food security. Regional Environmental Change, 11(1), 229-237. Pacific / Pacific Islands Climate change will adversely affect food systems in South Pacific islands, including the supply of food from agriculture and fisheries, the ability of countries to import food, systems for the distribution of food, and the ability of households to purchase and utilize food. Drought can have serious consequences to rural food systems due to the lack of irrigation water but too much rainfall can be devastating too. The severe flooding in Fiji in 2004 for example, resulted in the loss of 50%-70% of all crops. -
