A Comparative Analysis of Ecosysted-based Adaptation and Engineering Options for Lani Town, Fiji

This report builds on a vulnerability and adaptation assessment,1 which provided information on key threats to natural resources and the socio-political context of Lami Town, Fiji, and identifi ed potential adaptation options to climate change. To further analyse these adaptation options, this synthesis report presents a cost-benefi t assessment of four adaptation scenarios. These scenarios represent the spectrum of ecosystem-based and engineering adaptation options to reduce vulnerability to storms, which was identifi ed by the Lami Town Council as the principal vulnerability concern. This report is intended to be used as the basis for development of a full adaptation plan for Lami Town.
