Project Coordinator: Alamoana Tofuola Finance Assistance: Betty Fousaga The Managing Water Scarcity through Strengthened Water Resources Management project respondsto MFAT’s Water Security Strategic Approach to address the climate change-related water securitychallenges faced by Pacific Island Countries. The Project is being implemented by the PacificCommunity (SPC) over the three-year period from July 2020 to June 2023, and. builds upon the achievements, learnings, and enabling environments established through the MFAT-funded Strengthening Water Security of Vulnerable Island States (SWSVIS) project. This Project was also implemented by SPC and from 2015 to 2019 supported a range of activities to strengthenthe availability, reliability and quality of drinking water in vulnerable and isolated communities inthe Cook Islands, Kiribati, the Marshall Islands, Tokelau and Tuvalu. The SWSVIS project workedacross multiple sectors within the participating countries to help develop and implement a suite ofpractical measures and tools that strengthened local capacity to anticipate, prepare for and respondto the impacts of drought. The new Water Scarcity Project represents a significant scaling up andrefocusing of the activities implemented under the SWSVIS project. It aims to provide support tospecific water-scarce communities to actively manage resources to improve resilience, in order that:• Communities have the infrastructure and capability required to access, collect and store water.• Communities understand, protect and maintain water resources and infrastructure; and• Communities are sustainably using water resources and managing risk. Implementation of the Project is now commencing in each of the five atoll nations of the Cook Is-lands, Kiribati, the Marshall Islands, Tokelau and Tuvalu.
Project Coordinator: Susan Tupulaga Contact: email@example.com ISAAC project is a 3 year project commencing in 2017 and funded by USAID and jointly implemented by SPC, SPREP and PIFS covering 4 countries including Tuvalu, Fiji, Palau and Samoa. The main focal areas of ISAAC project are awreness and capacity building, policy development, climate change adaptation divided across three main key result areas; 1. Intergrated Institutional frameworks and national capacity stregthened 2. Accessing Climate Finance 3. Regional cooperation and corrdination and stregthening Some of the project's achievements include; 1. supporting the NIE accrediation process in providing assistance to develop tools under Ministry of Finance 2.Supporting review of Environmental Impact Assessment 3. Establishment of Environmental Social Safeguard (ESS) as one of the requirement for NIE Accreditation process 4. Development of Payout policy and methodology for the Tuvalu Survival Fund 5. Supporting 20 students to persue Project Management IV Courses 6. Supporting the development of the Climate Change Web Portal 7. Contribute and participate in Awareness Activities 8. Establish Data and Information for vulnerable sectors (in progress) 9. Awareness activities on the tools/policy and regulation developed (for 2019)
Objectives: - is to strengthen the national institutional capacity of Pacific Islands Countries (PICs) to effectively plan, coordinate and respond to the adverse impacts of climate change and disaster risk. It is intended to build on existing multi-sector, whole of iland approaches that have been implemented successfully in other Pacific Countries.
Coordinator: Kilateli Epu Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org Phone #: 00688- 20517 Partnerhsip House, Deparment of Climate Change and Disaster The Buildind Safety and Resilience in the Pacific project (BSRP) is commited to reducing the impacts of disaster and climate change on Pacific Island countries and communities. 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
TIVA Data Analyst: Faatupu Simeti Contact : email@example.com 00688 - 20517 Partnership House Department of Climate Change and Disaster Climate change has always been a threat to all countries in the world. Tuvalu a country that consists of nine small atolls with a population of approximately twelve thousand people is mostly affected by climate change. 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. Tuvalu has signed a memorandum of understanding between its Government and the International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD) regarding support for the Tuvalu Integrated Vulnerability Assessment (TIVA) by the National Adaptation Plan Global Network (NAP GB). 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.
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
