The Government of Tuvalu has an ongoing program for assistance in
improving its outer island maritime facilities. The Government of
Tuvalu has requested support from the World Bank (IDA) for support
to develop a stronger, more resilient maritime sector and provide
improved access to and from outer islands. The objective of the
Tuvalu Maritime Investment in Climate Resilient Operations (MICRO)
Project is to “improve the resilience of Tuvalu’s maritime sector and its
capacity to prepare for and respond promptly and effectively to an
Eligible Crisis or Emergency in Tuvalu.”
The project aims to improve the connectivity problems that constrain
Tuvalu’s economic and social development. This will be achieved by
rehabilitating and improving maritime infrastructure on the islands of Nanumaga, Nukufetau, and Nanumea and
improving the safety, efficiency, and sustainability of the Funafuti port cargo area pavement and warehouse. The
objective is to improve infrastructure with the dual aim of improving the day-to-day lives of the Tuvalu people and
providing infrastructure that can be used to respond to emergency events amplified by climate change.
