EU and Germany working together in Kiribati

7:53 am on 10 March 2017

The European Union is to fund a climate adaptation project and a sustainable energy project in Kiribati.

The work, for which $US686,000 had been provided, would be implemented by Germany's International Co-operation agency.

The climate change project entails strengthening capacities of Kiribati's technical agencies and some communities to help them to undertake coastal-land use vulnerability & adaptation assessments.

The sustainable energy project entails the design, installation and sustainable management of solar energy systems, at two boarding schools.
