The objectives of the survey were to:

(1) identify plant species presently causing problems, particularly in natural and semi-natural ecosystems; (2) identify species that, even though they are not presently a major problem, could spread more widely or are known to be problem species elsewhere;
(3) confirm the absence of species that are a problem elsewhere and, if introduced to Kiribati, could be a threat there;
(4) make appropriate recommendations.

This base line study was launched to determine the problem on the amount of e-waste that has been generated with some self induced due to lack of quality control at point of entry. The objective of the report is to determine the existing status of electrical and electronic waste in Kiribati in identifying the source, the flow and the quantities of e-waste generated with a view to have a better insight understanding of this in the country.

This Pacific Country/Territory Profile in the solid waste and recycling sector was published in 2018 as part of a compendium of fifteen individual country profiles that seek to identify and quantify the opportunity to improve the resource recovery of fifteen common commodities1 present in the solid waste stream.

The Kiribati Chemical and Waste Management Advice and Banaba Reconnaissance consultancy was undertaken from 15–29 July 2008. The consultancy was necessary due to several hazardous waste management issues identified on Tarawa and Banaba since 2005.

The focus of this academic study is on the country’s two main urban areas: South Tarawa in the Gilbert
group and Kiritimati in the Line group. The study assesses the dependence of urban dwellers on their urban environment as well as examining their increasing vulnerability to climate change.

This plan is not focused on improving infrastructure (pipes, pumps, tanks), it is about people can do with the resources that they have. It is focused on building Island Level capacity to manage drought by improving communication and guiding the actions that can be taken before the worst effects of drought occur – this will help to improve the quality of life in Abaiang villages during drought. These measures need to be taken at a village and household level and this plan will help the villages decide what actions to take before and during drought.

The lagoon of Tarawa harbors the richest benthos documented for any Pacific atoll. The biota is strongly influenced by its setting in the equatorial upwelling zone and the unusual geomorphology of the atoll, with a submerged western rim, but largely closed and islet-strewn eastern and southern sides.

The purpose of this paper therefore is to describe aspects of the benthic ecology and biota of Tarawa Atoll and to consider how the unusual setting of the atoll has affected the bentho.

Basel Convention, is an international treaty that was designed to reduce the movements of hazardous waste between nations, and specifically to prevent transfer of hazardous waste from developed to less developed countries (LDCs). It does not, however, address the movement of radioactive waste. This fact-sheet details the national reporting and implementation information for Kiribati as one of the parties to the convention.

This study seeks to estimate and quantify the total economic costs of the inadequate water supply and sanitation situation in Kiribati’s main urban center, South Tarawa. This study also aims to demonstrate that vulnerable groups such as women are most likely to bear a disproportionate amount of the economic costs associated with low levels of access and poor quality of basic water supply and sanitation services.

The establishment of designated areas in the ocean that restrict human activities is one of the most viable solutions to successful protection of the marine environment. To end destructive practices on the seas and reverse the loss of biodiversity, the World Summit on Sustainable Development in 2002 called for the creation of a global network of marine protected areas. This guide aims to assist international policymakers and other stakeholders in accomplishing this task.
