Twenty four students attended face-to-face training sessions in Suva last week as the final step of an intensive 16 week training programme on climate change adaptation & disaster risk reduction. The successful students will be provided with the regionally recognized ‘Certificate IV in Resilience’, giving the Pacific an expanded pool of regional expertise in this important field.
The training programme, which included students from Fiji, Kiribati, Nauru, Samoa, Tonga and Vanuatu, is part of the European Union funded Pacific Technical and Vocational Education and Training on Sustainable Energy and Climate Change Adaptation (EU PacTVET) project, implemented by the Pacific Community (SPC) in partnership with the University of the South Pacific (USP). Funding for the programme was provided by the EU PacTVET project and delivered by the USP Pacific Technical and Further Education (Pacific TAFE). Funding included tuition for Fiji-based students, accommodation and travel for regional students for the face-to-face sessions in Fiji. Source: SPC
