legislation type Executive
Adaptation Framework
DRM/DRR Framework
Passed in 2012
NSAP is the implementation plan for Te Kaniva and was also co-ordinated by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Trade, Tourism, Environment and Labour. As a five-year action plan, it is intended to be revised at the mid-point of the Te Kaniva period and adjusted accordingly. The NSAP identifies 141 specific actions to meet the seven thematic goals outlined in Te Kaniva, as well as realising the target of 100% electricity generation through renewable energy technologies first outlined in the 2009 National Energy Policy and specifies the responsible agencies and the total expected costs of achieving these actions. The actions include:
- Develop nurseries to nurture selected food crop and tree species that are salt and heat tolerant;
- Develop legislation for the Meteorological Services;
- Conduct training for all eight island Kaupule on integrating climate change and disaster risks into Island Strategic Plans;
- Establish building code for climate resilient housing;
- Review and/or develop enabling legislation and regulations to promote and enforce energy efficiency and renewable energy opportunities;
- Review fire safety in all schools, hospital, power stations, key offices and conduct relevant training on equipment use and maintenance; and
- Review and amend Tuvalu's constitution and relevant legislation to address Tuvalu's sovereignty of its EEZ (exclusive economic zone) regardless of projected impacts of climate change.

It also recommends a new National Strategic Action Plan Co-ordinating Committee be established to oversee the implementation of the NSAP.
