The project seeks to strengthen existing systems both within Live & Learn, Government Agencies and the Ranputor community to increase resilience to the shocks of climate change in Vanuatu. Live & Learn will use existing resources developed in water management, river care, food security, forest-management and good governance to support a holistic approach to ecosystems-based adaptation. The Departments of Fisheries, Agriculture and Forestry will be engaged in specific activities during the project increasing their capacity to respond to community vulnerabilities on a systems-level. For Ranputor itself, existing governance systems, institutions and customary practices will be empowered through the funded activities to enhance communities’ resilience to climate change.
The project will focus on three key areas:
(i) Governance and strengthening of social systems for long term project sustainability and social resilience (ii) Ridge to Reef conservation work as example of ecosystems-based resilience (ii) Food Security work to bring in other Pentecost communities and to make connection between ecosystems and food.
