Pacific Resilience Week 2019 : 3rd Climate Action Pacific Partnership III event (CAPP III ; 29-30 April) and Pacific Resilience Meeting (PRM; 1-3 May)
The Pacific Resilience Week will hold back to back:
the 3rd Climate Action Pacific Partnership (CAPPIII) event taking place between 29-30 April (more info on which at the following address https://cop23.com.fj/climate-action-pacific-partnership-capp/); and
- the Pacific Resilience Meeting taking place between 1-3 May.
Emphasising the need for urgency as we fast approach 2020, and the actions required to keep the 1.5°C target alive, CAPP III sessions will be framed around the Talanoa Call for Action that was presented at COP24 in Poland last year. The conference will also be a platform to amplify the voice of Pacific Island Countries in the UN Climate Summit in September this year.
Participants will be engaged in two days of lively discussions on how climate action can be accelerated, and transformative changes achieved in the Pacific, and how this can inspire action globally. Discussions will also capture efforts made to increase resilience in Pacific Island Countries and support the work of the Pacific Resilience Partnership Taskforce. Progressing the work of the Regional Pacific NDC Hub and the Ocean Pathway will be areas of focus in the conference.
Themed Youth Futures in a Resilient Pacific, the PRM organised in collaboration with the GCCA+ is a multi-sectoral, multi-stakeholder meeting that will take stock of progress and review and strengthen processes relating to the implementation of the three goals of the Framework for Resilient Development in the Pacific (FRDP).
The PRM will bring together over 300 participants to showcase the implementation of the FRDP and highlight how communities and countries are working inclusively to strengthen their resilience in an era of escalating disaster and climate risks.
