Abaiang Island - Integrated Vulnerability Assessment

This report presents the outcomes of a Whole-of-Island Integrated Vulnerability Assessment (WoI-IVA) conducted on Abaiang Atoll in Kiribati in September 2013. The report assesses the socio-ecological context of Abaiang Atoll in relation to climate change and disaster risks, and examines the capacity of the atoll community to reduce risks and adapt to the impact of environmental change. As such, an understanding of the atoll’s vulnerability was developed by identifying Abaiang’s key socio-ecological features and the experienced and anticipated pressures stemming from demographic, developmental and climatic change.
