Vanuatu Climate Information Services for Resilient Development (CISRD) Project

VMGD Web Developer

Vanuatu is among the most vulnerable countries on earth to the increasing impacts of climate change, including climate-related natural disasters and the effects of slow-onset events such as sea-level rise and ocean acidification. In an effort to address these challenges, the Government of Vanuatu, through VMGD and the Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme (SPREP) have successfully secured financing from the Green Climate Fund (GCF) to develop and implement the Vanuatu Climate Information Services for Resilient Development (CISRD) Project.

The primary purpose of the CISRD project is to develop and strengthen climate resilient development in Vanuatu, with emphasis on supporting climate smart adaptation and disaster risk management policy and planning. The project aims to do this by building institutional and community-based capacity and providing critical resources to facilitate transformational and sustainable change in the application of science-based evidence to inform decision-making for relevant policy development and planning processes. This support will be delivered through provision of tailored Climate Information Services (CIS) specifically aligned with relevant national strategies for priority sectors, to address information gaps and priority needs of target beneficiaries (‘next’ and ‘end’-users of CIS) at national, provincial and local community levels.

1. Strengthening the VMGD platform to provide quality climate data and information for CIS.
2. Demonstrating the value of CIS at the sectoral and community levels.
3. Developing CIS tools and engaging with stakeholders through outreach and communications.
4. Strengthening the institutional capacity for long-term implementation of CIS in decision-making.

The Project is a 4.5-year project, funded by the Green Climate Fund (GCF) and managed by the Vanuatu Meteorology and Geohazards Department.

The Van KIRAP Project is seeking to recruit a dynamic, proactive and creative web developer to undertake web improvements to the Vanuatu Meteorology and Geohazards Department (VMGD) website
