The Tuvalu Coastal Adaptation Project (TCAP), financed by the Green Climate Fund (GCF), was approved in June 2016 and the project implementation commenced in September 2017. The project will run until September 2023. The objective of the project is to enhance coastal resilience in Tuvalu by implementing a robust strategy of coastal measures in three of the country’s nine islands and by building institutional and community-level capacities to prepare for the impact of increasingly intensive wave actions in the country.
