Fiji: National adaptation plan

This high-level strategic National Adaptation Plan (NAP) was prepared to spearhead ongoing efforts to comprehensively address climate change. This NAP communicates adaptation efforts across multiple government entities together under one document. The NAP influences and accelerates the national development pathway towards climate-resilient development. It seeks to improve resilience against changes in climate but also climate variability which will also increase under future scenarios.

The NAP process has been conceived as more than a simple process of devising adaptation strategies. It has been a comprehensive and critical assessment of climate change implications for key sectors as well as adaptation barriers presented by national and sub-national development planning processes which may frustrate adaptation efforts over the long term. This dual approach is a vital component of the ‘Theory of Change’ which underpinned the NAP process and the achievement of the NAP Vision.

It should be noted that the actions contained within this document are not all the adaptation actions which will take place over the next five years. It is a list of the adaptation actions to be prioritised over the next five years.
