Te Kakeega II and III - National Strategy for Sustainable Development

Executive
Strategy
Passed in 2005
Te Kakeega II (2005 - 2015) is Tuvalu's National Sustainable Plan. It is the end result of a large national public discussion on the future development of Tuvalu that culminated in a National Summit on Sustainable Development, held in July 2004. In the strategy, environmental sustainability is recognised as critical to meeting the Millennium Development Goals, with particular emphasis on funding and technical assistance to adapt to the impacts of climate change and sea level rise.
 
 It is organised into a framework of eight strategic areas the country should focus on:
 - Good Governance;
 - Macroeconomic Growth and Stability;
 - Social Development: Health, Welfare, Youth, Gender, Housing, and Poverty Alleviation;
 - Outer Island and Falekaupule Development;
 - Employment and Private Sector Development;
 - Human Resource Development;
 - Natural Resources: Agriculture, Fisheries, Tourism, and Environmental Management;
 - Infrastructure and Support Services
 
 Underneath these eight strategic areas are key policy objectives, and underneath these are specific priorities and strategies. Detailed under the strategic area of Natural Resources, mitigating climate change-related agricultural impacts and minimising climate change impacts on the environment in general are highlighted as key policy objectives. Specific priorities and strategies are to establish national climate change adaptation and mitigation policies, and to encourage international adoption of Multilateral Environmental Agreements, including the Kyoto Protocol.
