Pacific Islands Countries are spread across an area equivalent to 15 percent of the earth’s surface. The Pacific faces unique economic challenges due to its distance from markets and vulnerability to natural disasters and climate change. Of the 20 countries in the world with the highest average annual disaster losses, eight are Pacific Island Countries. GGGI is supporting its Pacific partners to address economic challenges through strengthening project implementation and national planning, and mobilizing investment to achieve green growth.
In 2013, GGGI commenced the Small Island Developing States Scoping Project, which focused on developing country programs in Pacific Island Countries, including Fiji.
GGGI work in Fiji aims to help integrate the National Green Growth Framework, adopted by the Government of Fiji in 2014, into the new National Development Plan for 2015-2020. In 2016, GGGI will develop a bankable project in Fiji to demonstrate that green growth is an investment opportunity that can result in improved economic outcomes and achieve poverty reduction and increased climate resilience.
