Global Climate Change Alliance Plus Scaling Up Pacific Adaptation (GCCA + SUPA)

15.09.2022

The GCCA+ SUPA project scales up climate change adaptation measures in specific sectors supported by knowledge management and capacity building. The project is undertaken in ten Pacific Island countries and places people at the centre of climate change adaptation efforts to strengthen the sectors responsible for providing water, food, health, marine resources and coastal protection.

The Global Climate Change Alliance Plus Scaling up Pacific Adaptation (GCCA+ SUPA) project is a 4.5-year project (2019-2023), funded through  the European Union’s flagship initiative, the Global Climate Change Alliance Plus (GCCA+) which assists the world's most vulnerable countries to address climate change.  The EUR 14.89 million project is implemented by the Pacific Community (SPC) in partnership with the Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme (SPREP) and the University of the South Pacific (USP), in collaboration with the governments of Cook Islands, Federated States of Micronesia (FSM), Fiji, Kiribati, Marshall Islands (RMI), Nauru, Niue, Palau, Tonga and Tuvalu.

The overall objective of the GCCA+ SUPA project is to enhance climate change adaptation and resilience within ten Pacific island countries. The specific objective is to strengthen the implementation of sector-based, but integrated, climate change and disaster risk management strategies and plans. The three outputs focus on the following: i) Strengthen strategic planning at national levels; ii) Enhance the capacity of sub-national government stakeholders to build resilient communities; and iii) Scale up resilient development measures in specific sectors.
