This KBA (Key Biodiversity Areas – areas of high biodiversity and conservation value) report outlines key recommendations for the Government of Kiribati and its people for protecting its unique biodiversity and supporting sustainable livelihoods. A total of twenty-two island KBAs were identified and suggested for immediate management.

A key finding of this analysis was that there are significant taxonomic, thematic and geographic spatial information gaps relating to biodiversity knowledge in Kiribati, especially for the Line and Gilbert Island. Another key finding of this analysis was that top priority sites where conservation and resource management efforts should be focused can be clearly identified and justified.
