ADAPT Asia-Pacific has undertaken an extensive consultation process since the First Annual Forum to plan the Second Annual Meeting that meets the unique needs of the Pacific region. This planning recognised that PICs have strongly called for enhanced access to climate change resources to meet the critical climate change challenges (particularly adaptation) faced by the region. In 2010, Leaders tasked the Pacific Islands Forum Secretariat (PIFS) in collaboration with the Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme (SPREP and other stakeholders) to coordinate support to improve PICs access to, and management of, climate change resources. Considerable efforts by a number of countries and development partners have progressed to this end over the last couple of years.

To ensure that Pacific perspectives are integral to the Second Annual Meeting’s design, the PIFS facilitated regional input through its current role as Chair of the Pacific Climate Change Roundtable (PCCR) Resources Working Group (RWG). The key outcome of these consultations was a decision to hold the ADAPT Asia-Pacific Second Annual Meeting ‘back to back’ with a Pacific Climate Change Financing Workshop planned to occur 30 May – 1 June. These two separate but interrelated events would combine to form the Pacific Climate Change Resourcing Event Week over about a week from 30 May – 4 June, 2013, Nadi, Fiji.

The focus of this workshop was on on enhancing countries capacity to access financial resources for climate change.  This was based upon the outcomes of an earlier consultation, held in Apia, Samoa (February 2012), with Pacific Islands Climate Change focal points and experts.  In that Apia consultation meeting, countries were asked to identify their priority needs for climate change adaptation, and the workshop agenda was developed along those needs identified.


Pacific Island counties being up-skilled in the following areas:

• Specific donors and type of climate change financing available to the Pacific;

• Individual donor policies and financing criteria;

• Proposal writing, and log frame development; and

• Monitoring and Evaluation, and reporting requirements for donors.

The meeting also built on the previous UNFCCC meeting discussions on climate change financing, and provide further inputs to the preparations for the Doha Conference of the Parties.

To meet the above objectives, the two-day agenda covered the following topics:

• Identification of key climate/adaptation donors (An external assistant conducted research on this in advance);

• The importance of, and how to network with donors;

• Donor requirements for Proposal writing, including log frames; and

• M&E/reporting requirements for donors.


The topics were covered through a mix of mediums, including:

• Expert presentations;

• Donor discussion groups (focusing on donor requirements and networking);

• Practical exercises (Proposal development, log frames and M&E);

• Written inputs (donor identification); and

• Donor networking roundtable (lunch session).


A total of 6 sessions were organised corresponding to the workshop objectives outlined above. 

Some of the main conclusions of the workshop included:

• More training workshops to build capacity of the countries on climate financing required;

• Greater dialogue between countries and donors required to facilitate easier accessibility to climate funds;

• Regular training  is required to familiarise countries with different donor requirements and respond for proposals; and

• Need for a ‘ donor dialogue’ amongst donors active in the Pacific was identified.
