This is done through stregthening the region's ability to respond to existing and emerginf challenges caused by hazards and climate change and is being achieved through targeted disaster resilience strategies and climate adaptation work. To help overcome these challenges the Building Safety and Resilience in the Pacific project is helping find practical ways to support countries to prepare for, respond to and recover from disaster. This is done through the implementation of Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) strategies led by the countries involved in the project. These DRR strategies help assess disaster and hazard risks whilst putting measures in place to protect lives, assets and livelihoods.
Objectives: Reduce the vulnerability, as well as the social, economic and environmental costs of disasters caused by natural hazards, thereby achieving regional and national sustainable development and poverty alleviation in ACP Pacific Island States
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
