Vanuatu: Van-KIRAP rescues historical climate data

The Vanuatu Klaemet Infomesen blong Redy, Adapt mo Protekt (Van-KIRAP) project supported the Climate Division of the Vanuatu Meteorology and Geo-hazards Department carried out the rescue of thousands of historical records as well as a major cleaning up of the archive room, removing dust and brightening up the National Climate Archives.

VMGD is the custodian of Vanuatu's meteorological data that dates back to the 1950's and longest complete records in the Pacific region. 

Climate information that leads to resilience

Better resilience outcomes for 60% of Vanuatu’s population is a result of enhanced climate information and technology infrastructure.

The enhanced Vanuatu Climate update (VCU), Monthly Climate Summary and the Early Alert Rainfall Watch are tailored climate products that are circulated every month by the Vanuatu Meteorology and Geo-hazards Department (VMGD) to targeted development sectors: tourism; agriculture; infrastructure; water and fisheries.
