GCCA+ SUPA : Learning from the past, preparing for the future
The Global Climate Change Alliance Plus (GCCA+) Scaling up Pacific Adaptation (SUPA) places people in the nine smaller Pacific Island countries and Fiji at the centre of climate change adaptation efforts as the project seeks to strengthen the sectors responsible for providing water, food, health, marine resources and coastal protection.
Learning from the past, SUPA will enhance, replicate and strengthen existing on-the-ground measures so the five sectors can better withstand the increasing threats posed by climate change over the next 20 years. At the same time, SUPA will enhance the knowledge and skills of Pacific Islanders to prepare and adapt to the ever increasing risks produced by climate change. The 4.5 year project is Funded by the European Union and implemented by the Pacific Community (SPC), Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme (SPREP) and The University of the South Pacific (USP).
