Up to $1 million, 2015-2017

Australia is providing a $1 million package to assist Tuvalu recover from the destruction caused by Tropical Cyclone Pam in March 2015. At the time of the emergency, Australia worked with the Red Cross to immediately release pre-positioned water and medical supplies and deploy experts in logistics and water and sanitation. Australia is now supporting Tuvalu's long-term recovery and reconstruction efforts. This includes support to improve health services, re-establish crops and to strengthen the operations of the Tuvalu Red Cross and Tuvalu Government Disaster and Relief Coordination Unit. In 2016, Australia funded an adviser to support the Government to develop a plan and standard operation procedures to improve Tuvalu's preparedness and response to disasters.
