Kiwa Initiative's #PEBACC+ project launched in New Caledonia !

On October 12th, the #PEBACC+ Country Steering Committee met in Nouméa for the official launch of the project in New Caledonia.

What actions will be carried out in the territory's three provinces?

  • Technical and financial support for demonstration activities:
  • Protecting the beaches of Baie de St-Joseph in Ouvéa (Loyalty Islands Province).
  • Restoration of urban mangroves in Greater Nouméa (South Province).
  • Improving fire management in the mining south (North Province).

 An analysis of ecosystem resilience and socio-economic impact will be carried out. This #ESRAM ("Ecosystemic & Socioeconomic Resilience Analysis and Mapping") approach will enable the identification of Nature-based Priority Solutions.

Support for local and regional players in integrating valuable #NbS solutions into their strategies and policies for adapting to climate change.

The PEBACC+ Country Steering Committee brings together the Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme (SPREP), the Gouvernement de la Nouvelle-Calédonie, La Province des Iles Loyauté, Province Nord, Nouvelle Calédonie, the Associations de Maires and the Sénat Coutumier de la Nouvelle-Calédonie.

Thanks to the PEBACC+ and SPREP project teams who came from Fiji and Samoa for this important moment.
