Rebalancing nature, climate and economy
UNDP is supporting the Government on:
Renewable energy and energy efficiency: The Facilitation of the Achievement of Sustainable Energy Targets of Tuvalu project is facilitating the development and utilization of feasible renewable energy resources and application of energy efficiency technologies. This is to achieve the government’s target of reducing emissions of greenhouse gases from the electricity generation (power) sector by 100% by 2025 based on Tuvalu’s Intended Nationally Determined Contribution in 2015. At the community level, the Solar Home Systems for Funaota Project will install stand-alone photo-voltaic solar home systems that will provide reliable, high quality, cost-effective, and environmentally-friendly 24-hour power supply on Funaota Islet of Nukufetau atoll.
Coastal Adaptation measures: The recent tropical cyclones left behind some drastic changes to the coastal shorelines. These new changes had to be given priority in terms of the development of appropriate engineering designs that will easily gel in with the existing concept designs. Additional funds would be required to implement these new coastal measures.
