    This Act gives legislative effect to the whole-of-nation approach to disaster risk management and climate change, within the overall context of sustainable development It is designed and drafted in language that is understandable to non-lawyers.

    It contains structures that minimise bureaucracy and maximise efficiency in action, which is particularly important in times of disaster. The legislation was developed in consultation with a variety of government, nongovernment and international stakeholders, and is tailored to the Kiribati context of a small, widely dispersed population.

    The present focus is predominantly on disaster risk management and climate change adaptation, and it is anticipated in the years to come that an amendment bill will be prepared to increase the legislative content on climate change mitigation and related actions.
