Vanuatu
Community Marine Monitoring Toolkit
 

Scope: Developed in partnership with community resource networks in Vanuatu and the Vanuatu Fisheries Department, the Toolkit includes 6 modules. The modules provide standard methods for monitoring: fish catch, intertidal invertebrates, coral reefs, mangroves, seagrass and crown-of-thorns starfish. The Toolkit can be used by communities anywhere in the Pacific, and is accompanied by a Guide to Effective Tabu Areas.

 

Vulnerability of Tropical Pacific Fisheries and Aquaculture to Climate Change

 

Scope: A regional initiative lead by the Secretariat of the Pacific Community to assess the vulnerability of tropical Pacific habitats, fisheries and aquaculture to climate change. The project included 86 scientists to deliver two books, as well as in-country workshops in New Caledonia, Fiji, Solomon Islands, Vanuatu and Wallis & Futuna to identify climate change adaptations.
