Vanuatu is currently in the process of working on its TNA. It has prioritised its key sectors and technologies, and is working on the Barriers Analysis and Enabling Framework.

The Republic of Vanuatu is an island nation located in the western Pacific Ocean off the Australian coast. The country is an archipelago of over eighty islands stretching 1,300 kilometres from north to south. The islands’ approximately 221,000 inhabitants are predominantly rural and rely mostly on agriculture, tourism, raising cattle and offshore financial services. In Vanuatu, climate change is likely to impact all sectors, especially agriculture, water, coastal and marine resources, infrastructure and tourism.
