Institutional strengthening of Tuvalu's NDA and Preparation of Country Programme - The Tuvalu Readiness-1 project will highly support mechanisms on strengthening the NDA’s capacity and building on that capacity to deliver concise and effective measures in addressing climate finance, enhancing engagement with GCF, building on national stakeholders and private sectors, women and vulnerable groups communication whilst engaging them in decision making and voicing their opinions to build a reflective Country Programme and strategic framework.
Objectives: The project will supoort (i) strengthening the institutional capacity of the NDA to fulfil its role and obligations to the Green Climate Fund (‘the Fund’) and (ii) formulating a country programme to further enhance Tuvalu’s strategic engagement with the Fund. For the first component, the NDA will work closely with the delivery partner and national stakeholders to put in place new or improved mechanisms, procedures and processes for accessing, managing and monitoring climate finance. For the second component, the NDA will engage government, civil society organisations, private sector and island communities to develop a strategic framework of climate change investments that are appropriate, transformative, and scalable, and are aligned with Tuvalu’s national sustainable development and climate change priorities
Project Coordinator : Mr. Tomu Hauma Since 2015, under the sponsorship of the New Zealand Government, the Strengtening Water Security of Vulnerable Island States Project (shortened for the Water Security Project) started off in five island countries - Cook Islands, Kiribati, Republic of the Marshall Islands (RMI), Tokelau and Tuvalu. The project was particularly ignited by the 2011 drought epidemic in Tuvalu and thus developed to not only address impacts of drought in the five island countries but to also at least support and resolve other hazards on drinking water and its supplies. Such support has to be address through the project team efforts and the existing network of water related institutions on each of the five island countries. Thus both the Government and Civil Societies have their own part to play in the mix of addressing water problems in each of the five implementing countries. The project is regionally coordinated by the SPC, and implemented at the national level by each of the five island countries.
Objectives: The key objective of the project is to address impacts of drought and other hazards on drinking water supplies in each of the five implementing countries - Cook Islands, Kiribati, RMI, Tokelau and Tuvalu
