Addressing Climate Vulnerability in the Water Sector (ACWA) in the Marshall Islands
Supporting the Government of the Republic of the Marshall Islands (RMI) in adapting to increasing climate risks, particularly more frequent and extreme droughts, which impact the country’s drinking water supply
The population and infrastructure of the Marshall Islands are concentrated in small, low-lying islands and atolls, which are highly susceptible to sea level rise, changes in weather patterns, and extreme weather events.
This project will increase the resilience of water resources for drinking and hygiene in the Marshall Islands. Planned interventions include improving household and community rainwater harvesting and storage structures; and securing groundwater resources from seawater intrusion. The project will also strengthen the technical capacities of national and subnational institutions and key stakeholders to integrate climate change risks into water governance processes.
This project has an estimated lifespan of 7 years.
