More than 50 members from around the Pacific are in Nuku’alofa for the 2nd Global Environment Facility Pacific Ridge to Reef Regional Programme. ‘

 

The 5-year project supports the coordinated investment of the 91 US million dollars’ package of GEF grants.

 

Its aims are to deliver quantifiable local and global environmental benefits by focusing on cross-cutting approaches to water, land and coastal management with linkages across the fund’s focal areas.

 

Participating countries will have the opportunity to strengthen their capacity to successfully demonstrate and transfer technology to support targeted vulnerable areas, improve livelihoods and public health, and upscale their effective mainstreaming efforts to support countries in achieving their sustainable development goals.

 

Outcomes of this project will provide valuable insights and lessons learned that can be shared for replication between countries in the Pacific, and with similar initiatives covering other small island developing states for replication and scaling up.
