Towards a Climate Secure Future for Pacific SIDS

Side Event hosted by the Government of Tuvalu in partnership with UNDP


Pacific leaders, through the 2018 Boe Declaration, have recognized climate change as the single greatest threat to the livelihoods, security and well-being of the Pacific people.

Based on the experience of the UNDP-IOM Climate Security in the Pacific project, funded by the UN Peace Building Fund, the event will focus on the presentation of high-level summaries of the national climate security risk assessment profiles, recently conducted in Tuvalu, Kiribati, and the Republic of the Marshall Islands in close collaboration with the Governments of the three countries.

The presentation of the findings aims at advocating the importance of addressing climate security and expand climate security action in the region, applying the knowledge and methodologies already developed, and highlight opportunities to further mitigate climate security risks.
