Building community and ecosystem resilence to climate change through the diversification of water supply options and improved management of water resources and infrastructure on Lelepa Island, Vanuatu
Under this project Live & Learn will work with people on Lelepa Island to build community capacity for the development and implementation of strategies to improve water security in response to risks posed by climate change.
A community planning process will be undertaken, leading to the development of a Community Water Security Plan, that will be used to inform community engagement with government and funding bodies on issues relating to access to community capacity in water resource governance.
The project will also incorporate several activities capable of providing immediate tangible benefits for families on Lelepa Island, including repair and upgrade of existing household and community rainwater tanks and the construction of a number of new rainwater tanks.
