FishBase is a global species database of fish species (specifically finfish). It is the largest and most extensively accessed online database on adult finfish on the web.
This dataset provides a direct internet link to easily access marine life information and data recorded for Kiribati on the Sea Life Base portal.
Sea Life Base is a global online database of information about marine life. It aims to provide key information on the taxonomy, distribution and ecology of all marine species in the world apart from finfish.
Environmental and Social Impact Assessment (ESIA) are prepared in accordance with local legislation and international lending institution safeguards, to assess the environmental and social impacts and risks of projects.
This report is a result of a field work - it took an environmental and physical approach of the situation of Kiribati with the objectives to better understand the formation and recent evolution of sedimentary coasts, in particular tropical islands (Indian Ocean and Caribbean Sea archipelagos) and to analyze interrelations between physical processes and human development to determine the nature and extent of anthropogenic impacts, particularly in coral reef environments as well as to evaluate the exposure of islands to coastal hazards related to climate and climate change.
A summary of marine and terrestrial eco-regions of Kiribati.
Beach ecosystem based adaptation (EbA) can increase resilience of beaches to storms and sea level rise, using access control fencing and gateways, beach vegetation replanting and use of brush matting to protect beach erosion scarps from direct wave action. This report is the result of a project that applied EbA methods at seven eroding beaches on Abaiang, all located on community land, in demonstrations involving all of the ten villages on the main island.
As party to the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification, Kiribati is obliged to submit a national report on the implementation of the convention. The report will, in essence, be focused on the national implementation strategies, action plans, legislative instrument, and achievements relative to the convention.
The objectives of these regulations are to;
* prescribe a protected area for the terrestrial and marine resources of the Phoenix islands.
* prescribe particular licences and permits for regulating certain activities in the Phoenix Islands Protected Area and to establish a schedule of penalties for all activities affecting the Phoenix Protected Area
* implement the Cabinet decision of approving the nomination of the Phoenix Islands protected Area to the World Heritage Committee
A strategy for the management of invasive species and address related issues in Kiribati as a whole.

The aim of the National Capacity Self Assessment is for countries that are Parties to the UNCBD, UNCCD and UNFCCC, to assess their own capacities and capacity development needs to address the requirements of the three convention.
MACBIO is a project that supports sustainable economies and livelihoods of Pacific Island Countries by strengthening institutional and individual capacity, to manage and conserve biodiversity in marine and coastal ecosystems. The project was commissioned by BMUB to GIZ as part of IKI, jointly implemented by SPREP, IUCN and GIZ from 2013 to 2018.
This dataset holds all MACBIO-related resources pertaining to Kiribati as one of the participating countries. Resources include;
The Kiribati Ministry of Public Works and Utilities (MPWU) in collaboration with Korea Research Institute of Ships and Ocean Engineering (KRISO) with the support by the Ministry of Oceans and Fisheries of the Republic of Korea proposes to install a 1 MW Ocean Thermal Conversion (OTEC) on-shore facility at Bikenibeu on South Tarawa. An Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) has therefore, been commissioned by the Ministry of Public Works and Utilities (MPWU) for the proposed 1 MW OTEC facility.

For the Ninth Pacific Islands Conference on Nature Conservation and Protected Areas December 2013, Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme (SPREP) commissioned an assessment of the status of biodiversity and conservation in Oceania. This report assesses the overall state of conservation in Kiribati using 16 indicators.
