Event description

Description

Islands are on the frontline of global changes and severely feeling the impacts from climate change and resource depletion to urban growth, health threats, food pressures each deepening societal inequalities and reversing poverty reduction efforts. In response to this, the President of Palau launched the IRI with the support of Fiji and the Republic of Marshall Islands to strengthen implementation of community-based adaptation efforts in alignment with nationally-led sustainability commitments by building and strengthening public-private partnerships. The Island Resilience Initiative puts in place framework to set locally and culturally appropriate goals and catalyze community momentum to implement the “big four” international agreements - the SAMOA Pathway, the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the Paris Agreement on climate, and the New Urban Agenda.

To support strong outcomes for the UNFCCC COP 23 and Fiji as COP President, the President of Palau as a Leader of the Global Island Partnership will host the event. The event will demonstrate how community-based initiatives, solution scaling, reporting and project and finance pipeline development are contributing to implementation of national and global sustainability goals through strong public-private partnerships for islands, oceans and the planet to survive and thrive.

This event is being coordinated by the GEF Small Grants Programme implemented by UNDP, Pacific Island Development Forum and Global Island Partnership with the support of the European Commission and Secretariat of the Convention on Biodiversity. Accreditation to the UNFCCC COP 23, Bonn Zone, is required to attend this event.
