The Tuvalu Integrated Vulnerability Assessment (TIVA) is a collection of existing secondary data and also views from the people to help carry out a vulnerability assessment.

The collection of data from all the Islands of Tuvalu started in the beginning of this year 2018 and its still in the process of developing a TIVA Data base to improve IVA-data consistency, storage and presentation.  
The main objective of the Tuvalu Integrated Vulnerability Assessment is to provide a Dataset of what was collected and a vulnerability assessment report to help inform the development, implementation and monitoring and evaluation of Tuvalu’s NAP process.
