Nauru

The following activities are being supported under the European Union funded GCCA: PSIS project in Nauru.

Climate change adaptation project

Nauru has chosen to concentrate on improving water security as the primary goal of its adaptation project activities. The original concept was to improve household rainwater harvesting potential by replacing damaged roofs, to improve roof catchments. However, Nauru has changed project focus to now address the shortage of national water storage capacity. The need for new storage is a priority highlighted in the Nauru Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Implementation Plan (2012) and in the 2014 draft Republic of Nauru Framework for Climate Change Adaptation and Disaster Risk Reduction(RONAdapt). 

Other elements of the project include community education and awareness activities.
