PLAN INTERNATIONAL IN IN KIRIBATI

 We’re working to promote and protect the rights of all children in the Pacific region.

CHALLENGES

  • Eight Pacific countries are among the world’s top 20 countries most affected in terms of annual losses from disasters such as cyclones, earthquakes and tsunami.
  • Rising youth unemployment, increase in urbanisation, poor access to water and sanitation, lack of quality education, rising inequality, the effects of climate change.
  • The Pacific region has some of the poorest development indicators for women and girls.

HOW WE’RE HELPING

We began working in the Pacific in 2012 with a network of in-country partners, local communities and governments.

We have a major focus on climate change adaption so that children and their families are educated and empowered to implement climate smart solutions. We are also ensuring that disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation are taught in schools where we work.
