Enhancing Adaptation and Community Resilience by Improving Water Security

Enhancing Adaptation and Community Resilience by Improving Water Security

Description

Description: 

Climate change effects such as cyclones, extreme rainfall events, changes in ENSO, increased air temperature and sea level rise will impact on water systems through saltwater intrusion, physical damage and water contamination. As part of Vanuatu’s National Implementation Plan (NIP) for Safe and Secure Water, rural communities are identifying climate risks and adaptation solutions for water systems through Drinking Water Safety and Security Plans (DWSSPs). This project will strengthen the NIP and DWSSP process to address climate change impacts for climate-resilient DWSSPs and adapted water supplies through water protection zones and physical water system improvements.
