Promoting a resilient, sustainable, safe and informed Vanuatu
Welcome to the website of the Ministry of Climate Change Adaptation, Meteorology & Geo-Hazards, Energy, Environment and Disaster Management.
Since its creation in 2014, this Ministry has taken long strides within a short period of time in all sectors under its responsibility in terms of policy development and their implementation as well as legislative framework.
In August 2022 the second edition of the National Climate Change and Disaster Risk Reduction Policy and Implementation Plan were launched.
The sector policy promotes good governance, which will be reflected and implemented in the yearly Business Plans of each Department under the Ministry.
In 2022 this Ministry also launched its 2022-2026 Corporate Plan.
This Corporate Plan aims to guide the Ministry and its line departments in achieving overarching goals to drive planning, decision-making, programming and project delivery across government and its stakeholders.
Another important document launched in 2022 is the Revised and Enhanced Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC).
Vanuatu’s NDC reflects the highest ambitions on adaptation, mitigation, and loss and damage.
In 2023, Vanuatu has taken a leading role in successfully getting the United Nations General Assembly to adopt a Resolution calling for an Advisory Opinion from the International Court of Justice on Climate Change.
At the global stage, Vanuatu has also taken the lead in calling for the development of a Fossil Fuel Non-Proliferation Treaty.
This website brings to you as much information to fulfill the Ministry’s vision of promoting a resilient, sustainable, safe and informed Vanuatu as well as its mission of developing sound policies and legislative frameworks and providing timely, reliable scientific information for service delivery to enable resilient communities, maintain a sustainable environment and engage in economic development as outlined by the National Sustainable Development Plan (NSDP).
