Since 2015, under the sponsorship of the New Zealand Government, the Strengtening Water Security of Vulnerable Island States Project (shortened for the Water Security Project) started off in five island countries - Cook Islands, Kiribati, Republic of the Marshall Islands (RMI), Tokelau and Tuvalu. The project was particularly ignited by the 2011 drought epidemic in Tuvalu and thus developed to not only address impacts of drought in the five island countries but to also at least support and resolve other hazards on drinking water and its supplies. Such support has to be address through the project team efforts and the existing network of water related institutions on each of the five island countries. Thus both the Government and Civil Societies have their own part to play in the mix of addressing water problems in each of the five implementing countries. The project is regionally coordinated by the SPC, and implemented at the national level by each of the five island countries.
Objectives: The key objective of the project is to address impacts of drought and other hazards on drinking water supplies in each of the five implementing countries - Cook Islands, Kiribati, RMI, Tokelau and Tuvalu

Tuvalu a country that consists of nine small atolls with a population of approximately twelve thousand people is mostly affected by climate change. The Tuvalu Integrated Vulnerability Assessment (TIVA) is a collection of existing secondary data and also views from the people to help carry out a vulnerability assessment. Tuvalu has signed a memorandum of understanding between its Government and the International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD) regarding support for the Tuvalu Integrated Vulnerability Assessment (TIVA) by the National Adaptation Plan Global Network (NAP GB). The collection of data from all the Islands of Tuvalu started in the beginning of this year 2018 and its still in the process of developing a TIVA Data base to improve IVA-data consistency, storage and presentation.
