Field of activity

Sustainable livelihoods have a high priority for Pacific Island communities and governments alike. They are central to current development policies including resource management and conservation, but also in emerging policies to meet threats such as climate change. The European Union (EU) is therefore assisting Pacific countries (PACP )through a new regional programme: Adapting to Climate Change and Sustainable Energy (ACSE). The objectives of the ACSE programme are to enhance sustainable livelihoods in PACPs, to strengthen PACPs capacities for adapting to the adverse effects of climate change, and to enhance PACPs energy security at the national, provincial and local levels. The objectives will be achieved by supporting the efforts of PACPs governments and empowering communities to increase their self-reliance and their ability to cope with the effects of climate change.  Pacific countries involved are Cook Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, Fiji, Kiribati, Republic of Marshall Islands, Nauru, Niue, Palau, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Timor- Leste, Tonga, Tuvalu and Vanuatu.
