Bonriki Inundation Vulnerability Assessment - Development of severe and extreme scenarios of wave and water level through statistical analysis and numerical modelling Bonriki, Tarawa, Kiribati


Report summarising recommendations of various modelled scenarios including inundation, climate variability and abstraction scenarios. This report provides details of the work undertaken as part of the Bonriki Inundation Vulnerability (BIVA) project to develop probabilistic inundation scenarios to be fed into the inundation model for Bonriki. This work was undertaken in Kiribati, Tarawa Atoll, Bonriki as part of the coastal component of the BIVA conducted from 2013 to 2015.

The Bonriki Inundation Vulnerability Assessment (BIVA) project aimed to improve understanding of the vulnerability of the Bonriki freshwater reserve to coastal hazards and climate variability and change. Improved knowledge of risks to this freshwater resource will enable better adaptation planning by the Government of Kiribati.
