Vanuatu increased its capacity to manage national climate change and disaster risk resilience related activities, by providing a 5-day Monitoring and Evaluation for Climate Resilience training course in the capital, Port Vila. The course was developed in response to Vanuatu’s need for highly trained national M&E experts in the Climate Change field.
The training was held by the Vanuatu Ministry of Climate Change, with support from the USAID/SPC Institutional Strengthening in Pacific Island Countries to Adapt to Climate Change (ISACC) Project, the Pacific Islands Forum Secretariat (PIFS) and the Pacific Community’s (SPC) Geoscience, Energy and Maritime (GEM) Division.
There were 18 participants from national government agencies, as well as non-governmental organisations and civil society organisations who took part in the training with a view to improve their knowledge and capacity of M&E processes and how these relate to national, regional and global climate change and disaster risk resilience policy frameworks.
