The NAP-GSP Pacific Regional Training Workshop on the appraisal and prioritisation of options for adaptation planning is being held from 28-31 May 2018 at the Tanoa International Hotel, Nadi, Fiji. 

The joint UNDP-UN Environment National Adaptation Plan Global Support Programme (NAP-GSP) is working with the Secretariat of the Pacific Environment Programme (SPREP) to conduct this training, together with programme partners and collaborating organisations, including the Global Environment Facility (GEF), the Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme (SPREP), the UN Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR), the Green Climate Find (GCF), the Korea Environment Institute (KEI), International Organization for Migration (IOM), Food Agriculture Organization (FAO), United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and the Secretariat of the Pacific Community (SPC).

This training is an opportunity for participants  to explore available tools for the appraisal and prioritisation of adaptation options and share lessons learned, experiences and best practices from countries, to enhance adaptation planning processes.

The aim of the workshop is to enhance understanding of the importance of appraising and prioritising adaptation options, to advance climate change adaptation planning, with the goal to reduce vulnerability and build resilience.

Representatives are attending from the Ministries of Environment, Planning and Finance from all 14 Pacific region countries: Kiribati, Solomon, Samoa, Cook Islands, Niue, Tonga, Tuvalu, Fiji, Marshal Islands, Nauru, Vanuatu, Federated States of Micronesia, Papua New Guinea, and Palau. Representatives from Haiti are also in attendance.
