With financing from the GEF's Least Developed Countries Fund (LDCF), the Kiribati: Enhancing National Food Security in the Context of Climate Change project has a range of activities promoting climate-resilient farming and decreasing dependence on imported food on three islands: Abemama, Maiana, and Nonouti.

Supported by the United Nations Development Proramme (UNDP), and implemented by the Kiribati Ministry of Environment, Lands and Agricultural Development through the Environment and Conservation Division, the project’s goal is to build the adaptive capacity of vulnerable I-Kiribati communities to ensure food security in a changing climate.
