Climate Change

Small islands, whether located in the tropics or higher latitudes, have characteristics which make them especially vulnerable to the effects of climate change, sea-level rise, and extreme events (very high confidence) ♦  Sea-level rise is expected to exacerbate inundation, storm surge, erosion and other coastal hazards, thus threatening vital infrastructure, settlements and facilities that support the livelihood of island communities (very high confidence). ♦  There is strong evidence that under most climate change scenarios, water resources in small islands are likely to be seriously compromised (very high confidence). ♦  It is very likely that subsistence and commercial agriculture on small islands will be adversely affected by climate change (high confidence).

A roadmap was prepared for the preparation of a Regional REDD+ Policy Framework, based on an approach that takes into consideration:

  • The differential REDD+ opportunities among SPC member states
  • The different relevance of REDD+ to SPC member states
  • The need to integrate REDD+ initiatives in the region with existing strategic development initiatives and programmes
  • The need to minimise workshop fatigue among participating countries.

Report prepared by Dr Sean Weaver for SPC/GIZ Regional Project “Climate Protection through Forest Conservation in Pacific Island Countries”.

This report documents a workshop that was held as part of the consultation process for the development of a Pacific Regional Policy Framework for REDD+. The workshop deliberated on the themes contained in the first draft of the Pacific Regional Policy Framework for REDD+ prepared as a result of a regional consultation tour by SPC/GIZ between February and April 2012.

The workshop results will be used to refine the draft that will be shared with countries again for further input before being presented for endorsement by the September 2012 HOAFS / MOAFS meeting.

The 3rd Regional Meeting of Ministers of Agriculture and Forestry, convened by the Secretariat of the Pacific Community on 28 September 2012 in Nadi, Fiji, endorsed the Pacific Islands Regional Policy Framework for REDD+.

The framework is designed to provide policy options to guide REDD+ programme development at regional and national levels, and to provide a rationale for financial support for the sustainable management and use of forest and tree resources.

The development of this framework was supported by the SPC/GIZ (German Agency for International Cooperation) regional project, “Climate Protection through Forest Conservation in the Pacific Island Countries”, with funding from the BMUB.
