Current national policies and strategies related to the environment sector. These policies and strategies are being implemented by various Vanuatu government and non governmental institutions such the Ministry of Climate Change Adaptation (MoCCA), Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock, Fisheries, Forestry, and Biosecurity (MALFFB), Ministry of Lands, and Natural Resources (MoLNR), Ministry of Internal Affairs (MoIA), Ministry of Infrastructure and Public Utilities (MIPU), and their respective departments amongst other environmental stakeholders.
A report from a workshop that was aim to enable curriculum writers (formal and non formal) for K-6 to develop learning outcomes (including knowledge, skills and attitudes) on climate change and disaster risk reduction and options for mitigation and adaptation in Vanuatu (Agenda see Annex I)
The overall objective of this strategy is to provide a strategic framework for building and strengthening the capacity and services of the Vanuatu Meteorology and Geo-Hazards Department
This dataset contains brochures of the summary of climate projections for Vanuatu.
The contents is the result of a collaborative effort between the Vanuatu Meteorology and Geo-hazard Department and the Pacific-Australia Climate Change Science and Adaptation Planning (PACCSAP) Program – a component of the Australian Government’s International Climate Change Adaptation Initiative.
The research sought to understand the adaptive capacity of both Pacific island countries (PICs) and Australia’s disaster response to a potential increase in disasters driven by climate change. This report provides results for Vanuatu – one of four case study countries selected for deeper analysis.
Under the Pacific-Australia Climate Change Science and Adaptation Planning (PACCSAP) Programme this fact sheet was produced based on the application of cost-benefit analysis to compare the merits of different options to improve road access
Between March 12 and 14, 2015, Tropical Cyclone Pam struck Vanuatu as an extremely destructive Category 5 cyclone, with estimated wind speeds of 250km/h and wind gusts that peaked at around 320km/h. This assessment provides estimates to the the damages and losses, and identifies the needs of the affected population.
This report was prepared by the Utilities Regulatory Authority and contains information about electricity generated in concession areas (Port Vila town on the island of Efate, Luiganville town on the island of Espiritu Santo, Lakatoro town on the island of Malekula, Lenakel town on the island of Tanna). In addition, the data analyzed in the report is from 2014 to 2020.
The Vanuatu National Environment Policy and Implementation Plan 2016–2030 (NEPIP) is an overarching policy for the sustainable conservation, development and management of the environment of Vanuatu. It is the first of its kind since Vanuatu gained independence in 1980.
This dataset hosts 31 individual environmental indicator assessments that are in the **State of Environment and Conservation in the Pacific Islands : 2020 Regional report.**
Regional indicators are used to understand the current status of conservation in the region and to establish a process for periodic reviews of the status of biodiversity and implementation of environmental management measures in the Pacific islands region.
Each Pacific regional indicator is assessed with regard to:
This first state of the environment report for the Pacific region uses regional environment indicators to assess the status, trends, and data quality and availability for the endorsed Pacific environmental priorities. This report also includes an update of the State of Conservation in Oceania report produced in 2013, which was endorsed and published in 2017.
This publication ‘Strategic Environmental Assessment – Guidelines for Pacific Island Countries and
Territories’ has been prepared to provide guidance on the application of SEA as a tool to support
environmental planning, policy and informed decision making. It provides background on the use and
benefits of SEA as well as providing tips and guiding steps on the process, including case studies, toolkits
and checklists for conducting an SEA in the Appendices.
In the South-West Pacific region, 2020 was the second or third warmest year on record, depending on the data set. Near-surface temperatures over the land and ocean averaged across the region were about 0.37–0.44 °C above the 1981–2010 average.
Inform Plus proposed 5 pillars
- Component 1: Environmental Governance
- Component 2: Monitoring and field data collection for environmental standards and standardised environmental indicators
- Component 3: Data management utilising the Pacific Island Network Portal (PEP). Production of information products for decision makers based on existing data sets.
- Component 4: Enhance and expand GIS use for data collection, analysis and presentation to inform decision makers
State of Environment (SoE) reports provide in-country partners with a process to gather data on current environmental indicators, document their status, and formulate a plan for keeping these indicators on track or developing policies and programs as needed. This SoE Toolkit dataset contains resources that serve as guides to help create up-to-date State of Environment reports.
This article explores the phenomenon of the use of ICT for climate change activism in the Pacific.
This compendium presents a wide-ranging overview of more than 400 projects, case studies and research activities specifically related to climate change and Indigenous Peoples. It provides a sketch of the climate and environmental changes, local observations and impacts being felt by communities in different regions, and outlines various adaptation and mitigation strategies that are currently being implemented by Indigenous Peoples
This Special Issue of the Journal of South Pacific Law aims to provide insight into the role of international law in addressing the short-term and long-term challenges posed by climate change to Pacific Island States and their populations. It focuses on the two international legal frameworks that were designed to protect the Earth’s climate system and the human person: international climate change law on the one hand, and international human rights law on the other.
