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.
