Description

The Global Climate Change Alliance: Pacific Small Island States (GCCA: PSIS) project is a five-year, €11.4 million initiative, funded by the European Union and implemented by the Secretariat of the Pacific Community. The overall objective is to support the governments of nine Pacific smaller island states, namely Cook Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, Kiribati, Marshall Islands, Nauru, Niue, Palau, Tonga and Tuvalu, in their efforts to tackle the adverse effects of climate change. The purpose of the project is to promote long term strategies and approaches to adaptation planning and pave the way for more effective and coordinated aid delivery on climate change at the national and regional level. See overall project information sheet.

Regional collaboration

The GCCA: PSIS project has held four Steering Committee meetings to date, enabling countries to share with each other and with regional organisations and development partners their experiences and lessons learned. Reports from the Steering Committee Meetings are available here.

The GCCA: PSIS project is supporting the development of the Strategy for Climate and Disaster Resilient Development in the Pacific (SRDP), through consultations and provision of technical assistance.

The GCCA: PSIS project is also supporting development of the Pacific Climate Change Portal.
