Tuvalu national climate change policy 2012-2021

This National Climate Change Policy prescribes the Government and the people of Tuvalu’s strategic polices for adapting responding to climate change impacts and related disaster risks over the next 15 years (2012 – 2021). The policy defines 7 thematic goals, strategies and desired outcomes that the Government and the people of Tuvalu have prioritised for implementation to ensure that safety and resilience are achieved.

The Policy is directly linked to its National Strategic Action Plan for Climate Change and Disaster Risk Management (NSAP). In both the policy and its NSAP, climate change refers to both adaptation and mitigation unless specifically differentiated. The Policy covers climate change impacts and related climate and hydrological hazards where as the NSAP covers geological and anthropological hazards and related disasters.
