How Integrated Vulnerability Assessments Support NAP Processes in the Pacific Region
Several Pacific island countries have chosen to use integrated vulnerability assessments (IVAs) to capture and incorporate community-level vulnerability information into their NAP processes.
The IVA Framework was developed in 2016 by Pacific organizations in response to a perceived need to support a standardized, coordinated and integrated approach to assessing climate vulnerability in the region.
This briefing note will highlight the significance of the IVA Framework to the NAP processes underway in three Pacific island states: Kiribati, Tuvalu and the Solomon Islands. After briefly summarizing the background and purpose of the IVA Framework, this note will outline how it was applied, identify key lessons learned and make recommendations for future iterations of this work.
