Constructing a climate-resilient, year-round port for Nauru, preserving the vital sea-link for its 11,300 population deep in the Pacific.

Nauru is the world’s smallest island country, and one of the SIDS. As a result of its isolated position in the Pacific, Nauru depends significantly on its port for supplies of food, energy and most other essentials. However, the port is expected to become inoperable for longer periods every year due to the impact of sea level rise and increase intensity of climate-related disasters such as strong storms and cyclones.

Constructing a climate-resilient port that can operate year-round will provide the basis for regional and international maritime transport. The rehabilitation and climate-proofing of the existing infrastructure will be combined with supporting reforms of the Nauru Port Authority to assure long-term viability of the investment. The upgraded port infrastructure will feature a channel for oceangoing ships, a wharf with a turning berth, a breakwater to shelter the wharf and berth from waves, and other facilities.

The project has an estimated lifespan of 50 years.
