National Capacity Self-Assessment for Global Environmental Management (NCSA)

Project Summary

The primary objective of the Fiji NCSA is to carry out an assessment of local capacity to address global and national environmental issues and concerns, and to develop a plan for implementation of key activities to achieve capacity building needs as identified through the assessment, particularly those relating to the CBD, UNFCCC and UNCCD. This will be achieved through a series of internal self-assessments to be carried out by the stakeholders themselves to assess the extent of current capacity to meet their respective environmental responsibilities and to determine future needs. The aim is to catalyze domestic and externally assisted action to meet Fiji’s needs and priorities in a well-coordinated and planned manner.The NCSA will build on the experience of previous and existing capacity building work such as the NEMS, the NBSAP, the PEIN, POPs NIP, and the Climate Change Enabling Activity and will as much as possible, endeavor to consolidate and integrate capacity building activities that have been identified and implemented under these projects into the NCSA process.
