The project. The Outer Island Maritime Infrastructure Project – Additional Financing (the project) will continue the efforts of the Government of Tuvalu (the government) with support from Asian Development Bank (ADB) to rehabilitate and improve maritime infrastructure on outer islands. The Outer Islands Maritime Infrastructure Project is improving infrastructure on Nukulaelae, Nanumaga and Niutao which was damaged by Tropical Cyclone Pam in March 2015.
This dataset provides a direct internet link to easily access marine life information and data recorded for Tuvalu on the Sea Life Base portal. Sea Life Base is a global online database of information about marine life. It aims to provide key information on the taxonomy, distribution and ecology of all marine species in the world apart from finfish.
This datase provides a direct internet link to access fish species information such as (names, distribution, taxonomy, habitats, behavior, genetic etc) for Tuvalu
FishBase is a global species database of fish species (specifically finfish). It is the largest and most extensively accessed online database on adult finfish on the web.
For the Ninth Pacific Islands Conference on Nature Conservation and Protected Areas December 2013, Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme (SPREP) commissioned an assessment of the status of biodiversity and conservation in Oceania. This report assesses the overall state of conservation in Tuvalu using 16 indicators. *this report wasn't published but was sent to country for checking (2013)* - to be used for the Regional SOE initiative 2019

Tuvalu Statement at the Whale in a Changing Ocean Conference, Vava'u, Tonga, 2017
Tuvalu signed the Convention on Biological Diversity in 1992. The program of the Work Protected Areas is one of the successes of the convention. This action plan therefore presents the broad targets for the country as complemented in the National Biodiversity Action Plan to recognize, protect and apply best practices in relation to the management, protection and utilization of biological resources.
The Annual Tide Predictions Calendars are a popular product of the Australian-funded Climate and Ocean Support Program in the Pacific (COSPPac). The Pacific Community (SPC) has been designing and producing the tide prediction calendars over the past 3 years in partnership with the Australian Bureau of Meteorology.
The new predictions for Vaitupu were calculated using tide gauge data collected by SPC in 2015 under the European Union-funded Climate and Abstraction Impact Assessment (CAIA) project.
The review offers a brief overview of environmental legislation in force in Tuvalu identified and is current as of January 2018.
This data presents the value and volume of estimated fisheries catches and aquaculture harvest in the year 2014. It was presented in the 5th National Report to the Convention on Biological Diversity.
Data extracted from the 'Fisheries in the PICs' report, 2016. From the table, it can be seen that, in 2014, foreign-based offshore fishing in the Tuvalu zone produced 96,898 mt of fish, with an in-zone value of US$132 million (A$161 million).
Studies of the benefits to Pacific Island countries and territories from fisheries (“Benefish” studies) have been carried out in the past. Gillett and Lightfoot (2001) focused on the year 1999, Gillett (2009) focused on 2007, and the present study focuses on 2014.
The fishery production levels for Tuvalu from those three studies are presented in this data.
'Story Maps' allows an individual to combine authoritative maps with narrative text, images, and multimedia content to make it easy to harness the power of maps and geography to tell a story. An insight into Tuvalu's environmental issues is featuring on the story map website with images and ArcGIS contents.
