Adaptation to Climate Change in Coastal Zones in Vanuatu
Vanuatu ranks as the world’s most vulnerable country due to its high exposure to natural disasters, scattered island geography, narrow economic base, inadequate communication and transportation networks, and limited capacity to cope with disasters including those caused or exacerbated by the effects of climate change.
Barrier Removal for Achieving the National Energy Road Map Targets for Vanuatu
The project aims to enable the achievement of the energy access, sustainable energy, and green growth targets of Vanuatu, as represented in the country’s National Energy Road Map 2020 and 2030 targets.
Climate Early Warning Systems in Pacific Island Countries
The Climate Early Warning Systems in Pacific Island Countries project aims to enhance countries' adaptive capacities for disaster preparedness, response and recovery.
Disaster Resilience for Pacific Small Island Developing States Project
The project aims to improve Pacific SIDS resilience to climate-related hazards. It responds directly to Outcome 5 of the UNDP Strategic Plan for 2014-2017 i.e "Countries are able to reduce the likelihood of conflict and lower the risk of natural disasters including from climate change."
Effective and responsive island-level governance to secure and diversify climate resilient marine-based coastal livelihoods and enhance climate hazard response capacity
Tuvalu is one of the most vulnerable countries in the world to the impacts of climate change, perhaps even the most vulnerable. Tuvalu’s atolls are extremely exposed to projected sea-level rise, increases in the severity of cyclones, increases in ocean temperatures and ocean acidification.
Enabling Implementation of Nauru Energy Roadmap
The project will help establish an enabling environment to implement the Nauru Energy Sector Road Map. The project will consist of components that are institutional, legislative, regulatory, tehnical, awareness and capacity development and associated activities.
Enhancing 'whole-of-islands' approach to strengthen community resilience to climate and disaster risks in Kiribati
The project will enable the Government of Kiribati to strengthen resilience to climate change and disaster risk at national, island and community levels, utilizing the national 'whole-of-island' and 'whole-of-country' approaches promoted through their development strategies.
