Tuvalu NAPA Poster: How Do Men and Women Use Their Time?

Results from the National Adaptation Programme of Action (NAPA) Project Time Use Study

This time use study was commissioned for the NAPA 1/+ climate change adaptation project in Tuvalu. The NAPA1/+ project is under way in all islands of Tuvalu and focuses on three types of activities: installation and repair of water tanks, support to home gardens, and coastal protection measures. The objective of this Time Use study was to gather evidence on how men and women use their time during a typical day in various locations of Tuvalu. In most countries men and women tend to engage in different types of activities, due to social and cultural roles.
