Tuvalu leveraging 'LiDAR' technology in the quest for a more resilient future | March 2023

With funding from the Green Climate Fund, the Tuvalu Coastal Adaptation Project is working to develop innovative coastal protection solutions in one of the world's most vulnerable small island developing states.  

Implemented by UNDP in partnership with the government, the project has worked with Fugro, a world-leading geo-data specialist, to leverage airborne 'LiDAR' (Light Detection and Ranging) technology to capture precise coastal data - supporting adaptation planning into the future.
