PACC Cook Islands: Vital Harbour

This PACC project in the Cook Islands is climate proofing Mangaia Harbour, and protecting the island’s coastline.

The project focuses on coastal management on Mangaia Island. The badly damaged harbour at Mangaia harbour – the transportation hub and entry point for all supplies to the island – was destroyed by tropical cyclones in early 2005. The project intervention was to develop a stronger and safer harbour that can withstand current and future climate-related threats.

The Pacific Adaptation to Climate Change (PACC) project is funded by the Global Environment Facility's (GEF) Special Climate Change Fund (SCCF) and the Australian Government (AusAID), with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) as its implementing agency and the Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme (SPREP) as implementing partner.
