This Learning Resource has been produced by the Pacific Research and Evaluation Associates (PREA) for the Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme (SPREP), in collaboration with the Adaptation Fund (AF) Board Secretariat. This document was co-sponsored in partnership with the Pacific Islands Forum Secretariat (PIFS).
The document was produced originally for Pacific participants to a regional training workshop, which was held at the SPREP campus, in Apia, Samoa, in September 2014. SPREP would like to acknowledge the financial and technical support received for this workshop from the following partners: Asia Pacific Adaptation Network (APAN), Institute of Global Environmental Strategies (IGES) and the Ministry of Environment, Japan; Secretariat of the Pacific Community (SPC) through its European Union (EU) funded Global Climate Change Alliance (GCCA) Pacific Small Island States (SIS) Project (GCCA: PSIS); and the Climate Technology Center Network (CTCN) hosted by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). Additional technical assistance was also provided by the Kyoto Protocol Adaptation Fund (AF); and the Green Climate Fund (GCF) â for which SPREP is very grateful.
PREA and SPREP also acknowledge the great work done by Zena Grecni, Yale student and intern at SPREP, who developed "A Pacific Island Countries Guide to Accessing the Adaptation Fund" that informed parts of this Learner Guide.
