Unite for Climate Action

Implemented by UNDP, the Unite for Climate Action Project is a grass-roots level initiative that aims to establish and improve community skills in addressing climate change related emergencies and natural disasters. Funded through contributions made by local businesses, experts will work with local communities to devise tailor-made response and preparedness plans, train a team of locals in emergency response, and provide basic equipment needed for such situations.

The project has an ambitious goal of covering all the inhabited islands in the archipelago. But to more effectively and efficiently tackle the impacts of climate change, islands are categorised by increasing order of vulnerability, with the highest priority given to the most vulnerable island.
