The ACSE programme will help the 15 Pacific ACP countries (Cook Islands, East-Timor, Fiji, Kiribati, Federated States of Micronesia, Nauru, Niue, Palau, Papua New Guinea, Republic of the Marshall Islands, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tonga, Tuvalu and Vanuatu) to address three main challenges common to all of them: adapting to climate change; reducing their reliance on fossil fuels; and capacity building.
ACSE is funded under the 10th European Development Fund (EDF 10) Pacific regional envelope.

Component 1: the EU-GIZ Adapting to Climate Change and Sustainable Energy Component (18.64 million Euros) which is administered by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ); Component 2: the Energy Catalytic Component (10 million Euros) which is jointly managed by the EU with the Asian Development Bank (ADB) and New Zealand in selected PACPs; and Component 3: the Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) Component on sustainable energy and climate change adaptation (6.1 million Euros) which is jointly managed by the EU with the Secretariat of the Pacific Community (SPC) in partnership with the University of the South Pacific.
The programme aims to strengthen the Pacific island countries' capacity to adapt to the adverse effects of climate change and to enhance their energy security at national, provincial and local/community level. The programme seeks to deliver the following:
2. Improved cost-effective and efficient energy systems to reduce fossil fuels dependency; and
3. Improvements in communities’ adaptive capacity to cope with climate change challenges.
