Students from form 7 showed a great understanding of how to overcome problems they will face in the future with careful design and planning.

Why Our Services were required

  • SSL were asked to organise, guide and facilitate the successful running of the climate change related “Future of Tuvalu” schools exhibition from pupils attending 3 local schools on Funafuti, Tuvalu (Nauti Primary School, Form 7 Secondary School and Funafuti Special Education Needs School ).
  • SSL staff facilitated the students by providing the pupils with various forms of medium to either design and make model’s or to plan and sketch their ideas to express their visions for ’ The Future of Tuvalu’ in light of a changing climate.
  • Some pupils chose to write and perform songs at the presentation given on the final day.

Tuvalu – “Pulaka Pit” Demonstration site, Funafuti.

Why Our Services were required

  • The production of a UNCCD / GEF Terminal Evaluation (Monitoring and Evaluation) on Sustainable Land Management (SLM) projects were required
  • Two contrasting nations used focused on to provide good examples of how different land management practices are needed for different terrains (one being volcanic and effectively mountainous – the other a low lying atoll nation with limited land space).
  • Need expert advice on how to integrate SLM principles with implementing the customary land rights

Solutions

  • Clear assessment of the project efficiency and cost-effectiveness
  • Clear identification of its strengths and weaknesses in project design and implementation,
  • Recommendations on design modifications that could have increased the likelihood of success.
