Social mapping and analysis of ecosystem use - Port Vila

This technical summary document reports on the findings from the first phase of ESRAM activity that
was conducted in Greater Port Vila between January and June 2016. Whilst it was understood at the
outset that both climate and non-climate drivers would be important influences on ecosystem quality
(and the services they provide), local engagement – through household surveys and community workshops – also uncovered substantial detail on the range of contemporary issues facing these communities: urban development, pollution, access to water, overharvesting and poor management of
resources, sand mining, and climate impacts (including ongoing recovery from Tropical Cyclone Pam,
March 2015)
