ACTIVITY INFORMATION
Project description

The Pacific islands are very vulnerable to the impacts of climate change and natural disasters. While they are mostly classified “least developed,” towns and cities on many Pacific island countries are growing rapidly and experiencing many of the urban development challenges typical of larger cities. At the same time, the capacity of the governments, national and local, for resilience planning and action is very limited, with few natural resources and little opportunity to generate revenue. The local governments are under great pressure to respond to rapid urban growth and the impacts of climate change and yet the responsible authorities are poorly equipped to respond.

Measured, quantitative outcomes / project impact

ICLEI supports Fiji cities by providing streamlined processes for assessing their risks and challenges and developing achievable action plans. In 2019 ICLEI assisted 7 city and town councils to undertake disaster risk self assessment and action planning, using the Sendai Framework and scorecards, and built capacity for disaster risk reduction at 2-day workshops with these cities. City staff and elected councilors gained a better understanding of how disasters and climate change impact all the city development challenges. The outcomes of the DRR workshops were collated into a “Generic Fiji Local Government DRR Action Plan” and provided to the Ministry Local Government and the National Disaster Management Office as input for their reviews of the Local Government Act and National Disaster Management Plan. ICLEI then engaged in discussions with the national government re becoming a technical partner for their towns and cities to build resilience and a blue-green pathway. These discussions are on hold at present due to Covid travel restrictions.
