This session is for "Negotiating and networking"
The Ministry of Climate Change has been working hard the past few months to prepare for this year's climate talks. Now, with less than a month to go until the negotiations begin in Bonn, MOCC is inviting the public to attend a special COP23 Forum.
Starting in early 2016, VIA and local partners have reached over 1000 households in ten islands of Vanuatu with the first rollout of pay-as-you-go (payg) solar home lighting systems in the Pacific region. A world-first program of solar mill deployment has also been undertaken, with over 40 solar powered crop-processing machines now operating across Vanuatu, including coconut and cassava graters, corn shellers, flour grinders, kava mincers, refrigerator/freezers and new low-cost water pumps.

National Tree Planting Day
The Government of Vanuatu, through the National Advisory Board on Climate Change and Disaster Risk Reduction Secretariat (NAB Secretariat) is supporting a review of the status of implementation of the Climate Public Expenditure and Institutional Review (CPEIR) for Vanuatu.
The NAB Secretariat would like to invite you to participate in this review by:
· Attending a half-day workshop, 8:30am-2:00pm on Monday 26th of June 2017 (Venue: Ramada)
When disaster strikes, the NDMO must quickly determine the extent and severity of impacts. The Food Security & Agriculture Cluster has been refining its Rapid Technical Assessment methodology using strategic questions as well as cutting edge technology like mobile phone and tablet apps. The FSAC will be running a training on the RTA process from 26-27 June 2017. For more information, contact Joshua Mael firstname.lastname@example.org
The Food Security & Agriculture Cluster was proactive and well-organized during the NDMO response to Tropical Cyclone Donna. Despite the political interference that caused many of FSAC recommendations to be overturned at the highest levels, mush was achieved and lessons learned. To capture this, the Ministry of Agriculture will be holding a cyclone Simulation/Lessons Learned activity with all cluster members from Government, civil society, the private sector ad development partners from 10-11 July 2017.
The consequences of climate change and disasters are experienced by all sectors of society, private and public. Despite strong interest and capacity, at present the private sector in Vanuatu tends to play an ad hoc role in climate change adaptation, greenhouse gas emission, disaster response and resilience building activities.
USP will be hosting its first-ever Climate Finance Workshop, a join initiative between the USAID's Adapt and Climate Ready Projects. Drawing on the 6-years experience of the USAID Adapt Asia-Pacific project, which specializes in assisting with the preparation of adaptation projects, the workshops will cover important aspects of the landscape of climate finance then look into the practicalities of developing an adaptation project.
