Tuvalu scholarships awarded under Green Climate Fund-financed project

February 8, 2018. Two students from Tuvalu have been granted university scholarships under the Tuvalu Coastal Adaptation Project. The project focuses on building coastal resilience in three of Tuvalu's nine inhabited islands and is funded by the Green Climate Fund. Investing in young people is among the country's environmental adaptation plans. "At the moment we only selected the civil engineering with some coastal background for one of the students to take and the other scholarship award is the Bachelor of Science in geospatial science", said manager of the Funafuti based project, Moeo Finauga. Finauga said the students would be offered jobs on the project once they had completed their studies.
