The vision of the 9 year KJIP (Kiribati Joint Implementation Plan 2014-2023) is that; Kiribati unique culture, heritage and identity are upheld and safeguarded through enhanced resilience and sustainable development.
The goal is; to increase resilience through sustainable climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction using a whole of country approach.
An analysis of Kiribati’s legislation to determine gaps, overlaps and conflicts. This analysis involves –
* An analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of existing legislation and proposed laws (Bills)
* An assessment of the effectiveness of the legislation in supporting the government to responsibly manage the environment and ensure the sustainable use and conservation of natural resources
A user manual to assess and guide vulnerability assessment studies.
This study describes the biodiversity values of Malden Island, and assesses the potential benefits, feasibility and costs of removing key invasive species.
This small study is an initial feasibility study, designed to give some indication of the numbers of vehicles and the economics of any waste management system that might be appropriate to dealing with the problem. This study looks at two issues: what does it take to strip a typical wrecked Tarawa vehicle so that it can be recycled; and how many vehicles might there be in South Tarawa that need some waste management.
This datase provides a direct internet link to access fish species information such as (names, distribution, taxonomy, habitats, behavior, genetic etc) for Kiribati
FishBase is a global species database of fish species (specifically finfish). It is the largest and most extensively accessed online database on adult finfish on the web.
This dataset provides a direct internet link to easily access marine life information and data recorded for Kiribati on the Sea Life Base portal.
Sea Life Base is a global online database of information about marine life. It aims to provide key information on the taxonomy, distribution and ecology of all marine species in the world apart from finfish.
Environmental and Social Impact Assessment (ESIA) are prepared in accordance with local legislation and international lending institution safeguards, to assess the environmental and social impacts and risks of projects.
A summary of marine and terrestrial eco-regions of Kiribati.
The aim of the National Capacity Self Assessment is for countries that are Parties to the UNCBD, UNCCD and UNFCCC, to assess their own capacities and capacity development needs to address the requirements of the three convention.

The Kiribati Ministry of Public Works and Utilities (MPWU) in collaboration with Korea Research Institute of Ships and Ocean Engineering (KRISO) with the support by the Ministry of Oceans and Fisheries of the Republic of Korea proposes to install a 1 MW Ocean Thermal Conversion (OTEC) on-shore facility at Bikenibeu on South Tarawa. An Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) has therefore, been commissioned by the Ministry of Public Works and Utilities (MPWU) for the proposed 1 MW OTEC facility.

An old report on an entomological survey of Christmas Island.
There is an increasing need for sand and gravel for building materials in Tarawa and on other atolls. However, supplies from overseas are expensive. Furthermore, the mining of local beaches contributes to coastal erosion and lacks sufficient quantities for the current and future requirements. An answer to these problems is to source supplies from the lagoon. A purpose-built vessel capable of dredging lagoon aggregates in Tarawa and further afield was available through a European Union grant. This EIA assesses the impacts such would do to the environment.
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.
