Cook Islands NCSA Capacity Development Action Plan and Final Report

26 Jun 2008

Cook Islands, like many developing countries, faces increasing challenges in managing its environment, addressing global environmental agendas and objectives and in achieving its national Sustainable Development Goals and its commitment to the Millennium Development Goals. In recognition of the need for support and collective action for effective environmental management Cook Islands became a Party to three important Multi-lateral Environment Agreements namely United Nations Conventions on Climate Change (UNFCCC), Conservation of Biodiversity (UNCBD) and Combating of Desertification – or Land Degradation (UNCCD) The need to participate effectively in these conventions and the recognition of the limited capacity at the national level led Cook Islands to join 151 other GEF developing country members to make use of the opportunity presented by the GEF of funding assistance to undertake a National Capacity Self Assessment (NCSA) targeting the three conventions and the issues they were set up to address.
