Protected and conserved area(s) concerned


The BIOPAMA AC Objectives addressed

  • Enhance the management and governance of priority protected areas by addressing existing limitations.
  • Support local communities initiatives aiming to enhance the livelihoods of local people while effectively contributing to protected areas management.

Priority need addressed

Reduction of coastal erosion and sand stabilisation through tree planting and acquiring necessary equipments and funding support the augmentation of the management of conservation areas.

Project activities

This Project will actually focus on purchasing tools that will be needed to monitor the salinity and temperature on conservation areas which data will be useful to inform decision makers. The installation of beacons and bouys in one of the conservation area is a priority to ensure that proper demarcation.  In addition, as climate change is one of the main issues that Tuvalu is facing at the moment; the Project focuses on trying to re-plant trees on degraded sites. 

The change the project implementation will bring for the protected area(s)

Proper demarcation of conservation areas and deployment of beacons and buoys will ensure that the public will be aware of the site and we will be able to ensure that illegal hunting of species is controlled and also for better protection and long term management of conservation areas.

Purchasing of tools use for monitoring of salinity and temperature is also important as we will be able to have available data and information which will be used for policy making.

Re-planting of degraded trees especially on the coastal areas will also assist in ensuring that we tackle climate change impacts (coastal erosion)
