Nauru is currently in the process of working on its TNA. It has prioritised its key sectors, and work is now underway to determine which technologies to prioritize.
Nauru is an isolated island located in the South Pacific approximately 2,900 kilometres northeast of Australia. Historically, phosphate was its primary economic resource. However, reserves of phosphate are thought to be nearly depleted now, and in any case the end of phosphate mining left a legacy of environmental degradation and unemployment. Because Nauru is a single small island, the effects of climate and sea-level change will be highly inter-related and conditioned by the environmental and social changes that occur in the future. Improved access to climate change finance remains a key priority for Nauru.
Nauru’s TNA contributes to the following Sustainable Development Goals:
