Tuvalu Climate Change Policy - 2012


Tuvalu faces acute impacts of climate change on account of being an extremely low-lying small island country with limited ecological, socio-economic and technological capacities. As a result, major threats posed by climate change include sea level rise, costal erosion, storm surges and salt-water inundation among others. The climate change policy thus aims to integrate disaster risk management and adaptation actions to formulate a comprehensive and effective response.
