Papua New Guinea has large tracts of intact mangrove forest with a high species diversity extending over many thousands of shore kilometers and, in many regions, penetrating quite deeply inland.
Mangrove ecosystem is very useful and critical to PNG coastal communities. Its uses ranges from carbon sequestration, buffers coastlines against storm surges and sea level rise, breeding ground for fisheries, building, firewood, medicinal purposes to name a few.

This report presents the outcomes of a Whole-of-Island Integrated Vulnerability Assessment (WoI-IVA) conducted on Abaiang Atoll in Kiribati in September 2013. The report assesses the socio-ecological context of Abaiang Atoll in relation to climate change and disaster risks, and examines the capacity of the atoll community to reduce risks and adapt to the impact of environmental change.

The focus of this resource is on the effects of changes in air and sea surface temperature, rainfall, sea-level rise and extreme weather events on island environments, economies and people. It is vital to enhance individual and community skills to adapt to these changes – in other words, to reduce risks and maximize potential benefits.
