Owning Adaption In The Pacific

Pacific Island nations need more finance to adapt to the adverse effects of global

warming, but they also need to manage the funds effectively, to benefit their most

vulnerable communities. This report looks at three countries – Papua New Guinea,

Vanuatu and Tonga – to understand their experience of managing climate finance. Thechallenges they face include: improved coordination by donors; strengthened

management across departments and with local governments; and better engagement

with civil society. The report calls for a focus on building capacity across governmentand non-state actors; strengthened partnerships and coordination; better information,communication and transparency; fostering a culture of learning and improving directaccess to climate funding. Most importantly, civil society and vulnerable communitiesmust be able to hold governments accountable for the use of adaptation finance, andgovernments must play a leadership and coordinating role to mobilise a broad responseacross Pacific societies based on a common aim to build resilience.
