Pacific Adaptation to Climate Change Project

The PACC Project is designed to promote climate change adaptation as a key prerequisite to sustainable development in Pacific Island Countries. Its objective therefore is to enhance the capacity of the participating countries to adapt to climate change and climate variability, in key development sectors.

The Pacific Adaptation to Climate Change (PACC) project is funded by the Global Environment Facility (GEF), and further funding has been provided by the Australian Government (AusAID) and the United States of America (USAID) for additional activities, with support from UNITAR through the C3D+ programme for developing adaptation measures and capacity building to effectively respond to climate change. It is implemented by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in partnership with the Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme (SPREP). The project is from 2009 to 2013.

The PACC project covers 13 participating countries and helps develop three key areas that build resilience to climate change in Pacific communities: Fiji, Palau, Papua New Guinea and the Solomon
Islands focus on Food Production and Food Security; Cook Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, Samoa, Tokelau and Vanuatu are developing Coastal Management capacity; and Nauru, Niue, Republic of Marshall Islands, Tonga and Tuvalu are looking to strengthen their water resource management. With the additional resources provided by AusAID and USAID, Kiribati and Tokelau will become participants in PACC.
