Please find attached the agenda for FSAC meeting tomorrow Wednesday 02.11.16.
The meeting will be held at the Yumi Go Haos (Directorate building) Conference room from 2pm - 3pm.
See you all there.
As you are aware, the Ministries of Trade and Agriculture together with the private sector are planning an exciting and major 3-day end of year event from 9th to 11th November (starting in exactly 10 days’ time!). Planning process is well underway.
The Ministry of Climate through DEPC and IUCN will be conducting the GEF6 national stakeholder consultation from 07 – 11 November in Port Villa. This will include meeting with relevant government departments and ministries, NGOs, private sectors, civil society groups and individuals through focus group meeting, workshop and interviews with individuals. The objectives of the consultations are:
As we are very soon to enter our yearly cyclone season, please be advised that the National Disaster Management Office (NDMO) is planning to have a final review of its Cyclone Support Plan on November 3rd, 2016. This review is mainly to give everyone a clearly picture on what your respective role is should there be any cyclone in the coming weeks or months. This review will only focus on the roles and responsibilities each organisation is to take if a cyclone happens to affect our country.
In 2015 we were taken off guard (TC Pam). Due to that, and thanks to the support of Dr Chris and GIZ, we managed to set up a RRU to help with TC Pam emergencyrelief support and relevant follow up work to date. This time around we must be prepared.
I am aware, recently a SOP (standard operating procedure) to deal with agriculture-related issues notably during/after cyclones. It will be very important that atMinistry level the Minister knows so he can brief Parliament on what measures MALFFB will take in future. The FSAC has also been meeting regularly since TC Pam.
