CLOUD NASARA

 

This animation is an exciting tool to raise awareness of the science and impacts of El Niño and La Niña in
Vanuatu to take early action in preparing for these extreme events.

Climate cloud nasara

Welcome to the Cloud Nasara! The film is available in Bislama,English and French, and tells the story of a

cloud meeting place, floating high above the Pacific, and its interactions with a small island village,
inhabited by a
colourful cast of characters, including a reggae-obsessed parrot and a string band.

The islands of Vanuatu can experience very dry or very wet conditions as a result of El Niño and La Niña
events. These conditions, along with extreme events like cyclones, can have serious impacts on water
quality, food security, infrastructure (like houses and roads), livelihoods and health. However, good
quality climate and weather information, warnings and forecasts can help us anticipate and prepare for changing risks
.
