Module 7 | Replanting Coconuts for Viable Climate Change Adaptation

Coconuts (the ‘tree of life’) have been a very important food crop for centuries in Pacific Islands, well before coconut plantations were first established in coastal areas, more than a century ago, to produce copra for export to Europe.
