    Te KanivaTuvalu Climate Change Policy 2012

    "Te Kaniva" was the first Tuvalu climate change policy presented by the former Hon. Apisai Ielemia in 2012, refering to a "traditional travelling method of using stars and  daily weather patterns by our ancestors when they go on a long journey on a fishing expedition"  meaning that TCCP will help the nation chart a  way through the many impacts of climate change.
