Supporting Fiji to advance their NAP process

Introduction

  • The Climate Change Division under the Ministry of Finance has requested support from the NAP-GSP to update and finalize the Fiji National Climate Change Strategy.
  • To date the National Climate Change Strategy only focuses on land resources. Through the acknowledgment that the ocean is a strategic resource for the country and that comprehensive policies are needed to successfully adapt to climate change, the Climate Change Division (CCD) wants to widen the scope of the current NCCAS to the marine sector.
  • Currently NAP-GSP is working with the Ministry of Finance (CCD) to conduct a detailed gap analysis and stock taking exercise that will provide suggestions and guidance to finalize the NCCAS.
  • Next Steps are; undertake consultation with key Government institutions and NGOs guide and inform the gap analysis and the stock-taking exercise.
