This National Strategic Action Plan for Climate Change and Disaster Risk Management (NSAP) describes
the people of Tuvalu’s priorities for immediate actions in the face of climate change.
Data submitted to the UN Ozone Secretariat highlighting the trend of ODS consumption (calculated as Production (if any) + imports - exports) in Tuvalu. Ozone Depleting Substances calculated here are HCFCs and Methal Bromide.
The results of this academic study stated that the sea level rise rate in Tuvalu as at September 2008 was 5.9 mm year−1, based upon the 15½ years of sea level data. This was about four times higher than the global average of 1-2 mm year−1.
Sea level in Tuvalu area had risen approximately 9.14 cm since the inception of the project 15½ years ago. However, it was to be noted that the land is quite stable and the rate of land sinking is -0.06 mM year−1 only.
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.
This report presents the results of the first nationally representative empirical study of relationships between household vulnerability, human mobility and climate change in the Pacific. Findings are based upon quantitative and qualitative fieldwork carried out in Tuvalu during the early part of 2015 by researchers from the United Nations University (UNU), the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UNESCAP) and the University of the South Pacific (USP)
This report summarises a review of the degree to which climate change has so far been mainstreamed in national strategic plans, policies and budgets of Tuvalu, and in a sectoral case study - and the extent to which mainstreaming has translated to implementation.
The review offers a brief overview of environmental legislation in force in Tuvalu identified and is current as of January 2018.
As part of the process of meeting its obligations under then Protocol, the government of Tuvalu, in close collaboration with SPREP International Consultant, developed this National Compliance Action Plan (NCAP). The NCAP was prepared to reflect the commitment of the Government of Tuvalu to comply with its Obligations under the Montreal Protocol.
This academic paper investigates the vulnerability of households to climatic disasters in the low-lying atoll nation of Tuvalu. Using the most recent household surveys available, the authors constructed poverty and hardship profiles for households on the different islands of Tuvalu, and combine these with geographic and topographic information to assess the exposure differentials among different groups using spatial econometric models.
'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.
The map is a fundamental tool for local resident and island management. It was constructed by latest and high-resolution satellite images and the measured results of field investigation by Foram Sand Project, J-PACE and SOPAC.
Tuvalu became the 189th member of the United Nations on September 5, 2000. This dataset provides a direct internet link to access all the highlight information pertaining to Tuvalu's participation in the UN
This study addresses rainfall trends, the frequency of droughts, La Niña influences and the relationship between rainfall and Sea Surface Temperature (SST) in Tuvalu. The findings revealed that;
* de-trended rainfall time series show declining trends in all four rainfall stations over the period 1953-2012;
* the frequency of drought ranges from three to fourteen years with a mean of nine years
* the occurrence of drought appears to follow the La Niña years
* boplots provide an effective option for defining drought
A list of international and regional multilateral environmental agreements in which each of the Pacific Island country is a party/signatory of. This is useful for SPREP activities and planning
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.
These guidelines are intended to assist the national and local authorities such as Environment
