North Efate – Vanuatu

The RESCCUE project was implemented in Vanuatu under the supervision of both SPC and the Government of Vanuatu by WSP Opus in association with Development Services, OceansWatch, Landcare Research, Live and Learn Vanuatu, and C2O consulting. 

Activities ended early November 2018 with a participatory lessons learned workshop held in Emua, North Efate, and the last Vanuatu steering committee meeting. Participants expressed their satisfaction with most of the project’s outcomes, especially the Tasi-Vanua network Resource centre built in Emua and the newly established North Efate Conservation Fund. 

The final RESCCUE project report for Vanuatu provides an overview of all activities and outcomes at the North Efate pilot site. A synthesis is also accessible here

RESCCUE developed its activities in North Efate in an integrated coastal management (ICM) and climate change resilience perspective. In line with its overall rationale, the project endeavored to reduce non-climate stressors on the ecosystems so as to increase their resilience as well as the resilience of communities depending on them. Activities were divided in five broad areas synergetic with one another.
