Our project partner in the Pacific, the Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme (SPREP), is the regional organisation established by the Governments and Administrations of the Pacific charged with protecting and managing the environment and natural resources of the Pacific. The head office is based in Apia, Samoa. Its mandate is to promote cooperation in the Pacific region and provide assistance in order to protect and improve its environment and to ensure sustainable development for present and future generations.
“The IMPACT project, led by Climate Analytics in partnership with SPREP, aims to strengthen the connections between the scientific assessments of climate impacts, vulnerability, adaptation and mitigation. It doing so, we believe it will provide the region with tools and capacities to make better use of knowledge in policies and projects and will enhance access to much needed climate finance. IMPACT also builds upon the highly successful High Level Support Mechanism, providing training for our region’s climate negotiators. This training can really help to increase the Pacific voice in the UNFCCC negotiations at the critical time of Fiji’s COP23 Presidency.”
