Joint National Action Plan on Climate Change Adaptation and Disaster Risk Management 2010–2015

The preparation of this Joint National Action Plan (JNAP) on Climate Change Adaptation and Disaster Risk Management (CCA & DRM) was funded by the Global Environment Facility through the United Nations Development Programme, ACP-EU Natural Disaster Facility through the Pacific Islands Applied Geoscience Commission (SOPAC) and the Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme (SPREP).

The Joint team from SOPAC and SPREP provided valuable training, facilitation and technical assistance throughout the process of developing this JNAP. In addition, the development of this JNAP also involved national experts that make up the Vulnerability and Adaptation Team of the Second National Communication (SNC) Project, Disaster Risk Management Task Force. Expert members were drawn from government ministries, Non-Government Organisations and Statutory Authorities. The Management Unit of the SNC Project, Ministry of Environment and Climate Change was responsible for the compilation and editing of the JNAP text with assistance from SOPAC and SPREP.

The JNAP is arranged as follows:

• Background and Setting;

• Linkages of this Plan to National, Regional and International Processes, Agreements and Frameworks;

• The JNAP Development Process; • The JNAP on Climate Change Adaptation and Disaster Risk Management; and
