Indo-Pacific Climate Hub

INPACC Hub

Accelerating transformative climate resilient development and igniting change for a sustainable future in the Indo-Pacific.

Our Focus Areas

Health
Human health is intricately connected with our natural environment, and climate change impacts human health in both direct and indirect ways. The health impacts of climate change are inequitably distributed both globally and within countries, and this is starkly evident across the Indo-Pacific region. By applying a health and justice lens to policy and program development, we can ensure that the healthiest climate policies and actions – those that prioritise human health, wellbeing and justice – are pursued.
Agriculture and Water
The impact of climate change on the earth’s water systems is felt across economies, environments, societies and cultures. Changes in these water systems threaten many ecosystem services on which humans depend. Similarly, land and ecosystems are affected by climate change, including direct effects of droughts, floods, heat waves, and indirect effects on disturbances like wildfires, which can impact on plant and animal productivity and on human-ecosystem interactions. Understanding and responding to these threats is becoming a major focus for governments, industries and civil societies worldwide.
Just Energy Transitions
Accelerating the energy transition is critical to avoid further lock-in of catastrophic climatic and environmental impacts. The transition away from carbon intensive energy sources toward clean and renewable sources is both a technological and social journey, and a ‘just’ energy transition – one that centres on maximising outcomes for people and communities – is ethically imperative as we move away from carbon intensive economies. We must ensure that the significant benefits from the transition are shared widely and that for those whom may be negatively impacted are appropriately supported.
Governance and Regulation
Law and regulation at multiple levels of governance (local, state, national, transnational, international) play a central role in addressing the climate crisis. Climate law is a relatively recent legal discipline that draws on, and has close intersections with, other areas of law and regulation, such as international law, environmental law, corporate and financial law, law of the sea and human rights law.

The INPACC Hub aims to…

01
Accelerate solutions
work collaboratively to support solution-oriented regional action in and for the region
02
Develop capacity
provide training and mentoring support to ensure the region’s researchers, practitioners and policymakers are equipped to address current and emerging climate challenges
03
Share knowledge and best practices
maximise beneficial climate outcomes for the region and globally by sharing lessons and successes across the Indo-Pacific and to other regions

The INPACC Hub can advise stakeholders on the key climate issues of health, policy and governance, energy and agriculture and water. By leveraging research and expertise in these areas, the Hub works with key regional stakeholders to co-design projects that will have the most impact and value. 

The INPACC Hub can help by:
• Establishing research partnerships for in-country projects 
• Capacity building, training, and mentoring 
• Providing basic research needs 
• Sharing experience 
• Innovation
