This report aims to inform investment decisions for the future, and to quantify and enhance our understanding of the threat that natural hazards and climate change pose to Fiji. It uses a new way to assess climate and disaster vulnerability for Fiji to help design climate change adaptation and risk management plans and strategies.
The Climate Vulnerability Assessment considers multiple aspects of climate vulnerability, including infrastructure, governance and financing, socioeconomic aspects and population characteristics, and the environment.
Many of the findings can be applied to other low-lying countries, particularly in the Pacific region, and the methodology used can support the design and update of the adaptation components of the Nationally Determined Contributions of the Paris Agreement.
