Twenty four students attended face-to-face training sessions in Suva last week as the final step of an intensive 16-week training programme on climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction.

The successful students will be awarded the regionally recognised Certificate IV in Resilience, giving the Pacific an expanded pool of regional expertise in this  field, reports the Secretariat of the Pacific Community (SPC).

The training programme, which included students from Fiji, Kiribati, Nauru, Samoa, Tonga and Vanuatu, is part of the European Union-funded Pacific Technical and Vocational Education and Training in Sustainable Energy and Climate Change Adaptation (EU PacTVET) project, implemented by the Pacific Community (SPC) in partnership with the University of the South Pacific (USP).
