An analysis of Kiribati’s legislation to determine gaps, overlaps and conflicts. This analysis involves –
* An analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of existing legislation and proposed laws (Bills)
* An assessment of the effectiveness of the legislation in supporting the government to responsibly manage the environment and ensure the sustainable use and conservation of natural resources
Looking at pressures of development on freshwater, this article argues that the future survival of small island states and their societies also greatly depends on managing the impacts of development.
These reports represent an important step in the desire of the Republic of Kiribati to protect the biodiversity and promote the sustainable utilization of the marine and terrestrial resources of Kiribati. The project assists Kiribati in identifying strategies and action plans that are geared towards meeting Kiribati’s obligations under the CBD at both the national and international levels
This Strategy is a five-year framework, a guiding document to support the development and implementation of communication initiatives. Its overarching objective is to highlight the priority communications goals in terms of climate change and climate risk in Kiribati, and to provide mechanisms and resources to enhance and encourage collaboration and cooperation in these areas.
A user manual to assess and guide vulnerability assessment studies.
This country snapshot provides a selection of national environment statistics, complemented by key economic and social indicators and documented by the United Nations Statistics Division.
This review updates and builds on the reviews conducted in the early 2000s under the International Waters Project. The review is for information purposes only. It is not intended to be a complete source of information on the matters it deals with.
The focus of this resource is on the effects of changes in air and sea surface temperature, rainfall, sea-level rise and extreme weather events on island environments, economies and people. It is vital to enhance individual and community skills to adapt to these changes – in other words, to reduce risks and maximize potential benefits.
The development of the Kiribati National Fisheries Policy (KNFP) aims to portray short to medium and long-term strategic objectives that will enhance responsible fisheries with emphasis on the need to support, improve and sustain the people’s livelihood, food security and economic growth today and for future generations.
PacWaste is a project funded by the European Union and implemented by SPREP to improve regional hazardous waste management across the Pacific in the priority areas of healthcare waste, asbestos
waste, E-waste and integrated atoll waste management.
This fact-sheet outlines a brief information about Kiribati, with activities taking place in the project domains of healthcare waste, e-waste and asbestos.
The purpose of these regulations are to;
* establish a shark sanctuary in Kiribati water to ensure conservation of sharks
* protect the balance of the marine ecosystem include commercially important fish species and the health of marine habitats such as coral reefs
* help sustain and develop the economy of Kiribati from shark and marine-related ecotourism
This small study is an initial feasibility study, designed to give some indication of the numbers of vehicles and the economics of any waste management system that might be appropriate to dealing with the problem. This study looks at two issues: what does it take to strip a typical wrecked Tarawa vehicle so that it can be recycled; and how many vehicles might there be in South Tarawa that need some waste management.
This integrated and vulnerability assessment takes a Whole of Island Approach which aims to address capacity constraints in Kiribati’s outer islands and to strengthen coordination among partners at the national level, local government level and community level
