How Fiji Is Using the National Adaptation Plan (NAP) Process to Scale Up Ecosystem-Based Adaptation (EbA)
Since launching it’s National Adaptation Plan (NAP) in 2018, Fiji has begun implementing the adaptation measures prioritized through its NAP process, notably scaling up Ecosystem-based Adaptation (EbA) efforts—which is a type of Nature-based Solution (NbS).
This briefing note provides an overview of how the Fijian government is approaching this task and share lessons for other countries seeking to use the NAP process to scale up EbA.

How Fiji Does Climate Adaptation: Actions Speak Louder In Virtual Reality
Over here in the US, much of the climate adaptation talk has to do with the familiar topic of infrastructure. Massive structures of concrete and steel are only part of the solution, though. CleanTechnica caught wind of a United Nations project that leverages virtual reality to communicate the nuances of climate adaptation, and they have chosen an interesting location to explore: the islands of Veidrala, Narikoso, and Lekanai in Fiji.
Solutions in Nature: Lessons from Fiji and Timor-Leste
Many countries are already using ecosystem-based adaptation to help build resilience to the impacts of climate change. In order to maximize its uptake and benefits, it is critical to integrate these actions into a country’s National Adaptation Plan (NAP) process.
Sink, Swim … or Fight Back
After a devastating cyclone struck, the NAP Global Network—hosted by IISD—helped Fiji make a plan to build resilience.
