National and Sector Policies and Strategies

 

The work of the NAB and the Climate Finance Working Group is underpinned by the National Sustainable Development Plan and the Climate Change and Disaster Risk Reduction Policy. Project proponents should refer to these two documents for information regarding the Republic of Vanuatu’s climate change and disaster risk management priorities and goals.

A policy search tool (beta) has been developed to assist project proponents find supporting policy statements. Please note that this is simply intended to be a convenient tool to assist policy research. Policy statements must not be taken out of context and always consult the original policies and strategies to ensure contextual alignment.
