Palau is situated east of the Philippines and north-east of Indonesia, and consists of more than 300 islands, stretching over 650 km, of which only nine are inhabited. Palau, a Micronesian country, is divided into 16 states.

Palau is subject to natural disasters, and mainly experiences tropical storms/ typhoons, drought and tidal surges. Like other Pacific Island countries, Palau is particularly vulnerable to the impacts of climate change, including severe weather events and rising sea levels.

IOM recently established an office in the country and is implementing a Climate Change project in partnership with the Department of Eduation. IOM works closely with partners to implement the Climate Adaptation Disaster Risk Reduction and Education Program (CADRE +) which offers critical support to communities at-risk. Using IOMs expertise in climate change adaptation and disaster preparedness, the project supports sustainable solutions for resiliency in vulnerable schools and communities through community based initiatives and education in the school. IOM also implemented a WASH Technical Assistance project in response to the El Niño severe drought in 2016.
