Fiji in the midst of all vulnerabilities presented by climate change continues to drive climate action globally. However, the starting point for effective action on climate change begins with a thorough understanding of climate technology needs. Thus the Fiji Technology Needs Assessment (TNA) Project is focused on determining Fiji’s climate technology priorities to successfully address the country's climate change adaptation and mitigation committments. Fiji’s TNA is focused on agriculture and coastal communities as priority sectors under the adaptation component of the project. On the mitigation forefront, the sectors selected to undergo a needs assessment include domestic maritime shipping and rural electrification. The TNA process in Fiji is country-driven, requiring heavy stakeholder engagement and local capacity building. The scope and depth of the Fiji TNA is well aligned to our national development objectives allowing national stakeholders to explore synergies with other national processes, striving towards the implementation of Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC) and National Adaptation Plans (NAP).
Objectives: The TNA is entailed in a three-stage process and has three key objectives: Stage 1: To identify and prioritise mitigation and adaptation technologies for selected sectors; Stage 2: To identify, analyse and address barriers hindering the deployment and diffusion of the prioritised technologies, including the enabling framework for these technologies; and Stage 3: To conduct a Technology Action Plan, which is a medium/long-term plan for increasing the implementation of identified technologies, based on the inputs obtained from the previous two steps. The Technology Action Plan outlines actions to be undertaken.
This projects looks at collecting the vast amount of traditional knowledge that are present in the Pacific. As a matter of fact some of our elderlies do still rely on traditional knowledge rather than relying on the weatherman. therefore, this project looks collecting some of this information and figuring if some of the knowledge are same in some of the Pacific Island countries.
Objectives: - to collect the various traditional indicators that are present in the Pacific
Objectives: Establish a Pacific regional disaster loss database using the DesInventar methodology covering 22 Pacific island countries and territories: American Samoa, Cook Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, Fiji, French Polynesia, Guam, Kiribati, Marshall Islands, Nauru, New Caledonia, Niue, Northern Mariana Islands, Palau, Papua New Guinea, Pitcairn, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tokelau, Tonga, Tuvalu, Vanuatu, and Wallis and Futuna.
A web portal and database system to support DRM capacity building through the provision of relevant data and information management.
