The Government of Kiribati recognizes the risks that climate change poses to the livelihoods of its people. Accordingly, it is putting in place measures to ensure the activities they depend on can withstand more intense and frequent climate hazards.
As indicated in the country’s climate change and disaster risk management plan (the “KJIP”), the Kiribati Integrated Vulnerability Assessment (KIVA) is a critical tool that uses a national, government-led approach to evaluate community vulnerabilities to climate change.
To support the use of the KIVA and make sure the needs and vulnerabilities of everyone is included in national adaptation actions, the Government of Kiribati developed five new tools over the past two years.
