Pacific Adaption to Climate Change Plus (PACC+)

Pacific island countries are already experiencing the impacts of climate change. The potential magnitude of the

problem threatens the very existence of some Pacific island states, and the achievement of sustainable

development and Millennium Development Goals. However, vulnerabilities and risks associated with climate

change are not currently being addressed in any systematic way. Climate change risks and opportunities are not

reflected in national and community level planning and governance processes. Individual, institutional and

systemic capacity is not targeted towards strategic interventions. Demonstrations of adaptation pilots in key

development sectors have not been implemented, and as a consequence few are replicated and scaled-up. The

PACC Project aims to significantly improve the effectiveness of the response to climate change in the Pacific.

The project will improve technical capacities to support appropriate adaptation centric policies, demonstrate

cost-effective adaptation techniques in key sectors, and promote regional cooperation. It is designed to lay the

framework for effective and efficient future investment on climate change adaptation in the Pacific.
