Small island developing states (SIDS) are extremely vulnerable to climate change, which poses severe threats to livelihoods, infrastructure, and marine and terrestrial ecosystems.

This programme targets the most vulnerable populations of coastal and rural areas in four Indian Ocean SIDS where livelihoods are highly dependent on the region's rich ecosystems and natural resources - whether dominated by agriculture and fishing (as in Comoros and Madagascar) or tourism and the services sector (as in Mauritius and Seychelles). It will develop and implement ecosystem-based adaptation (EbA) activities. It will increase the resilience of both people and ecosystems in these four countries by enabling civil society organisations to support the conservation of critical ecosystems within biodiversity hotspots.
