Tuvalu

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

Climate change adaptation project

The ‘Improving agroforestry systems to enhance food security and build resilience to climate change in Tuvalu’ project aims to increase domestic food security. Food security refers to the resilience of food supply systems and the sufficiency of access to nutritious food for the population. It will promote integrated farming practices that combine crops (agriculture) with trees and shrubs (forestry). This method can provide greater diversification, reliability and sustainability of land-use and yields.

The project will employ ‘climate-ready’ crop varieties that are researched and made available by SPC’s Centre for Pacific Crops and Trees and will diversify the crop varieties that are available in Tuvalu. It will also demonstrate the agricultural potential of land that is currently under-utilised.
