UNDERSTANDING THE PACIFIC’S ADAPTIVE CAPACITY TO EMERGENCIES IN THE CONTEXT OF CLIMATE CHANGE COUNTRY REPORT: VANUATU

Climate change is likely to affect the pattern of some disasters in the Pacific, and therefore
the organisations and systems involved in disaster response. This research, conducted by
researchers at the University of Technology, Sydney, focused on how the immediate
humanitarian needs following disasters are met by various stakeholders, both in the
affected country and those offering support from outside. The research sought to
understand the adaptive capacity of both Pacific island countries (PICs) and Australia’s
disaster response to a potential increase in disasters driven by climate change. This
report provides results for Vanuatu – one of four case study countries selected for deeper
analysis. See institute websites for the full research report which includes details of all
case study countries.
