Concept Design Report - Tuvalu Coastal Adaptation Project
Tuvalu is the fourth smallest nation in the world in land area with a population of just over 10,000. It is one of the most vulnerable countries in the world to the impacts of climate change and particularly sea-level rise and the possibility of intensifying storm events. Recent cyclones have caused population displacement, significant loss and damage of infrastructure as well as destruction of agricultural resources, contamination of ground water and changes in shoreline systems. Such impacts negatively affect the wellbeing of communities and long-term sustainable development aspirations. In response to this increasing challenge, the Government of Tuvalu (GoT) and the Green Climate Fund (GCF) have jointly committed US$38 million for the Tuvalu Coastal Adaptation Project (TCAP).
