Vanuatu: National adaptation plan for action - NAPA (2007)

National adaptation programmes of action (NAPAs) provide a process for Least Developed Countries (LDCs) to identify priority activities that respond to their urgent and immediate needs to adapt to climate change – those for which further delay would increase vulnerability and/or costs at a later stage.

The objective of the NAPA project for Vanuatu was to develop a country-wide programme of immediate and urgent project-based adaptation activities in priority sectors, in order to address the current and anticipated adverse effects of climate change, including extreme events. The project provided an opportunity to facilitate dialogue and consultations designed to identify and elaborate the immediate and urgent adaptation issues and appropriate activities, by conducting a comprehensive assessment of the available and necessary information on Vanuatu’s vulnerability to climate change and of the response measures and other activities needed to enhance the resilience of the most threatened parts of Vanuatu’s natural heritage, society and economy.
