PROJECT: Provision of negotiations training to Pacific Region negotiators
Project Reference: ADGL0007
This project aimed to support the financing of the participation of two representatives of the Pacific States to the 17th Conference of the Parties (COP 17) negotiations meeting and to the consultative sessions in particular. The key outputs include:
1. Flight tickets and attendance of the Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme (SPREP) nations and resource people at the event secured
2. A report outlining the names of attendees, who the flights are procured for, their rationale for attendance, procured equipment and rationale for their use, and how outcomes have been monitored and evaluated, and
3. A report detailing the activities that have been funded, notably flights and accommodation, and including feedback and evidence to support the workshop outcomes.
The key outcome was an increase in the technical understanding of key climate change issues and their policy implications within the context of Convention. This included the integration of climate issues into national development and economic planning, contributing to the elaboration of negotiating positions, and the enhancement of Pacific Island Countries (PICs) communications and outreach. It allowed PICs to maximise their participation within international climate negotiations.
Further objectives of the project were to strengthen the capacity of the Pacific Voyage COP 17 media team to report on the issues of importance and relevance to the Pacific region.
