MORE ABOUT ENVIRONMENT & ENERGY
Sound environmental management and access to energy are essential components in any sustainable development strategy. This is especially the case in Pacific Island Countries (PICs) where the population relies heavily on natural resources for their livelihoods.The Environment and Energy Unit of UNDP Samoa is based in Apia and is responsible for all energy, environment and UNDP-GEF funded programmes in Samoa, Cook Islands, Niue and Tokelau. In addition, the Environment and Energy Section is also responsible for a number of Pacific regional environment and sustainable energy programmes in partnership with the South Pacific Regional Environment Programme (SPREP) the South Pacific Applied Geoscience Commission (SOPAC), and the Forum Fisheries Agency (FFA).
