Australia Pacific Climate Partnership (APCP)
Australia Pacific Climate Partnership
Australia is working with Pacific islands governments to deliver climate and disaster resilient, low carbon growth. In 2016, Australia announced a climate change and disaster support package to the Pacific of A$300 million over four years. This is part of Australia’s 2015 Paris global climate change pledge of A$1 billion over five years.
The Support Unit provides advice to DFAT program managers and implementing partners to address disaster risks and deliver climate informed outcomes across all sectors of the aid program in the Pacific, from design to procurement, implementation and evaluation.
The team provides responsive and flexible specialist expertise and resources in climate resilience and information brokering, multi-hazard risk reduction, and gender and social inclusion.
