Title: PACIFIC ADAPTATION TO CLIMATE CHANGE (PACC)


1
PACIFIC ADAPTATION TO CLIMATE CHANGE (PACC)
  • PACC Niue Linkages with Niue IWRM

Sauni Tongatule, Environment Department
2
Outline
  • What is PACC!
  • GEF funded regional project on Adaptation to
    Climate Change
  • Focal area Water
  • Food security
  • Coastal Management
  • Linkages
  • Niue choose Water as a focal area
  • Should link up with the EUIWRM and the GEFIWRM

3
Direct Observations of Recent Climate Change
(IPCC 4AR,2007)
  • Warming of the climate system is unequivocal,
    as is now evident from observations of increases
    in global average air and ocean temperatures,
    widespread melting of snow and ice, and rising
    global mean sea level.

4
ADAPTATION APPROACH
  • Decision 11/CP.1 lays out three stages of
    adaptation as follows
  • Type I Planning, Impact Assessments
  • Type II Measures, Capacity Building
  • Type III Measures, Adaptation Implementation
  • PACC is a combination of II and III

5
What is PACC!
  • Regional UNDP/GEF project on climate change
  • Participating PICs (13) Cook Islands, Federated
    States of Micronesia, Fiji, Nauru, Niue, Papua
    New Guinea, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tonga, Tuvalu
    and Vanuatu
  • Marshall Islands Palau included in Dec 07
  • UNDP implementing agency with the Secretariat of
    the Pacific Regional Environment Programme as
    implementing partner.

6
Main Objective
  • Enhance the adaptive capacity and resilience of
    key development sectors in Pacific Island
    Countries to impacts of climate change.
  • Water
  • Food security
  • Coastal Area Management

7
Project Phase Focus
  • Implementation is planned to start in November
    08.
  • The project would be for 5 years.
  • For Niue Improved household rainwater
    harvesting to reduce water supply shortages due
    to cyclone associated damage to public water
    supply systems and in time of severe drought

8
Project Phase Focus
  • IWRM we believe will focus on improved land
    management in the borehole catchment zones of the
    Alofi (capital) well-field to protect public
    water supply drinking water quality.
  • There is complimentarity in the two projects
    rather then duplication The PACC project
    considers cyclone impacts, whereas the IWRM
    project considers the non-climate related issue
    of groundwater quality vulnerability to land use.
