We hope that Strategy 2030 will provide the signal for new and additional
resources for NDC implementation in the Pacific region that tends to lose decades of development from climateinduced natural disasters, compounded further by the effects of COVID-19.
With Pacific Countries in the driving seat, the launch of the Regional Pacific NDC Hub’s Strategy 2030 signals for new and additional resources to build on the momentum on climate action in the region.
The Regional Pacific Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) Hub’s long-term strategy was launched in April 2020 and presents the vision for a sustainable, low-carbon and climate resilient Pacific.
Pacific NDCs embody country efforts in targeting sustainable actions to reduce national emissions and adapt to the impacts of climate change. The 10-Year strategy aims to: improve NDC planning, policy, strategy and legislation in Pacific island countries; strengthen enabling environment for NDC implementation; accelerate NDC action on the ground through project/program implementation; and enhance NDC measurement, reporting and verification and transparency of action.
The NDC Hub’s Steering Committee Chair, Mr. Tutti Chilton says deepened engagement and collaboration with donors, partners and the broader development community is critical “for achieving the core objectives of Strategy 2030, a product of robust consultation with Pacific island countries and other key stakeholders.”
“We hope that Strategy 2030 will provide the signal for new and additional resources for NDC implementation in the Pacific region that tends to lose decades of development from climateinduced natural disasters, compounded further by the effects of COVID-19,” said Mr. Chilton.
“The NDC Hub is a unique multi-partner platform that draws on the experiences and expertise of the partner institutions in advancing climate action in the region, and the setup is especially useful for fostering nationally appropriate climate solutions and one that encourages national capacity building and peer learning,” said Mr. Chilton.
Currently, the Regional Pacific NDC Hub is generously supported by the Government of Germany, Australia and Newzealand. It is implemented through a partnership of Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), Pacific Community (SPC), the Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI), and the Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme (SPREP).
It has been operation since 2018 and provides technical support to 14 Pacific Islands Countries to implement their NDCs.
