In December of 2012, SPREP was successfully accredited as a Regional Implementing Entity (RIE) of the Kyoto Protocol Adaptation Fund (AF). This accreditation by SPREP was a direct response to requests from Pacific Island Country member countries, who identified the need for a regional organization such as SPREP, to provide assistance to them to access adaptation funding.

In line with SPREP’s role as an RIE, and in response to requests for SPREP to continue to enable countries to better access adaptation funds, SPREP is working in partnership with a number of agencies to facilitate such access. As such, SPREP and partner agencies worked together to deliver this workshop where PICs were given the opportunity to better enhance their ability to access Adaptation Funds.

This workshop also built upon an earlier regional training workshop, also facilitated by SPREP (in partnership with APAN and the SPC EU GCCA SIS project) in 2012, where countries looked at project proposal development and monitoring and evaluation more generally. While this workshop specifically targeted the Adaptation Fund application process, there are many skills and elements that were be taught in this workshop that will also apply to other donor funds (for example the GCF and bilateral funds), such as the results based framework process; and good practices in social and environmental responsibility and risk management.

This workshop was also held back to back with a second training workshop, run by the UNEP Climate Technology Centre and Network (CTCN), which focused on raising awareness amongst Pacific Island Countries on the role of the CTCN and their National Designated Entities (NDE’s). Having the workshops back to back enabled a wider range of participants to be brought in for both trainings and helped with cost sharing.

How to Address the Needs of Women: Regional Launch of the USAID Online Sourcebook for Integrating Gender in Climate Change Adaptation Projects

Registration: 12:30 p.m., Tuesday December 2, 2014, at the Foreign Correspondents Club of Thailand  Penthouse, Maneeya Center Building, 518/5 Ploenchit Road (connected to the BTS Skytrain Chitlom station), Patumwan, Bangkok 10330; Tel.: 02-652-0580; E-mail:; Web Site:

Admission is free and light refreshments will be served.

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Regional Development Mission for Asia is launching an online sourcebook to help ensure that gender considerations and women’s empowerment are incorporated into large-scale climate change adaptation projects. Using the sourcebook can significantly help improve the status of women living in Asia and the Pacific.

The impacts of climate change – drought, floods, extreme weather, and reduced food and water security – severely affect the most vulnerable groups, particularly women who are often dependent on the natural resources threatened by environmental change. But while women are disproportionately impacted, they have a unique and essential contribution to make in adapting to a changing climate, as many women manage water, food and fuel for their families.

The online sourcebook enables project proponents to design gender-responsive climate change adaptation measures as well as projects, particularly in developing countries, by providing targeted, sector-specific guidance and real-life examples that are easy to follow and navigate on laptops and mobile devices.

Please join us to learn more about the Online Sourcebook for Integrating Gender in Climate Change Adaptation Proposals developed by the USAID Adapt Asia-Pacific project and hosted on the Asia-Pacific Adaptation Network web portal. This regional launch is jointly organized by the Institute for Global Environmental Strategies, and is part of its Evening Café series.

The panel will include:

  • Ms. Suphasuk Pradubsuk, Regional Environment Office Gender Focal Point, USAID Regional Development Mission for Asia
  • Mr. Bob Dobias, Senior Advisor for Capacity Building, USAID Adapt Asia-Pacific
  • Dr. Ravadee Prasertcharoensuk, Executive Director, Sustainable Development Foundation

Please RSVP by November 28, 2014
