DescriptionThis programme of enabling activities derived from the GEF training-cum-scoping workshop held in Nadi, Fiji, will enable Pacific Island countries to meet their reporting obligations under the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, leading to their First National Communication as required under Article 12. This project aims to build capacity in the region to advance national interests related to climate change, including capacity to more actively and effectively pursue energy and natural resource management activities related directly or indirectly to climate change abatement and adaptation, and to take advantage of new opportunities related to the procurement of funding or projects related to climate change. The direct objective of this project is to reduce the rate of growth of greenhouse gas emissions in the respective countries.
Implementation StatusA terminal Multipartite Review meeting was conducted in March 2002 and the project is now operationally closed. Discussions with 14 countries on a follow-up project on adaptation are ongoing and a regional consultation tentatively scheduled for November.
