'Linking the Islands': Enabling early warning systems in Tuvalu

In the low-lying small island state of Tuvalu, the government’s National Adaptation Programme of Action (NAPA) – administered and implemented by UNDP Pacific Office in Fiji and the Tuvalu government, and supported by Global Environment Facility (GEF) – has been addressing marine-based livelihoods and disaster preparedness in the face of rising sea levels. The short documentary “Linking the Islands” looks at concrete ways Tuvalu is addressing the challenges communities face, including the installation of a disaster early warning system. The documentary was launched by the Prime Minister of Tuvalu, His Excellency Enele Sopoaga.
