Strengthened Resilience to Climate Change in the Pacific - from Capacity Building to Climate Investment

The Pacific Climate Change Centre (PCCC)


・Overseas Environmental Cooperation Center, Japan (OECC)

Seminar abstract

Climate change is the single greatest threat to Pacific communities. The IPCC AR6 working group 1 report is clear, urgent changes must be made to limit global warming to the Paris Agreements 1.5˚C temperature limit while there is still time. For the Pacific island’s region, the report spells out alarming consequences starting with us first, if the world fails to listen to the warnings in the report.
The Pacific countries have committed implementation of the Paris Agreement, and are updating Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) and National Adaptation Plans (NAPs), and further increasing efforts to enhance their resilience and low-carbon development with support of various capacity building opportunities and technical and financial programmers.
This side event aims to showcase the outstanding outcomes of the training programs of adaptation, mitigation and access to climate finance delivered by the PCCC and lessons learned on how those various programmers have built adaptive capacity to increase climate investment in the Pacific.
It will also provide opportunities to seek future partnerships and funding in order to explore innovative tools, methodologies and approaches relevant for the Pacific to enhance climate resilience through successful ‘building back better’ from disasters and COVID-19 and to adapt to protect communities and natural habitats in line with the goal of the COP26.
