SPC/GIZ Coping with Climate Change in the Pacific Islands Region (CCCPIR) programme

Mainstreaming climate change in Tuvalu

The Tuvalu Ministry of Finance and Economic Development and Department of Environment requested SPC/GIZ support to conduct cost-benefit analysis training and mentoring support to provide a stronger foundation for policy and programme decisions. SPC/GIZ CCCPIR is supporting the Tuvalu Association of NGOs (TANGO) to strengthen the capacity of their members to access climate change projects and programmes and partner with the government on the implementation of existing programmes.

Strengthening Information and Knowledge Management systems within the Department of Environment was identified as a priority and the post is awaiting government approval.

Sustainable energy management

SPC/GIZ CCCPIR’s energy component reviewed the draft Tuvalu Masterplan for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency and provided technical assistance to develop an energy database.
