Choiseul Integrated Climate Change Programme (CHICHAP) Workshop

A joint inception and programme planning workshop will take place from 28-30 January 2013 for the Choiseul Integrated Climate Change Programme (CHICHAP), a pilot climate change programme for the Solomon Islands. The workshop will bring together over 100 participants from all sectors to learn more about this project, the partners involved as well as the results of the Choiseul climate change vulnerability and adaptation assessment. The workshop is intended to establish a steering committee and discuss the draft work programme. The workshop is hosted by Choiseul Provincial Government, with the assistance of several national ministries and development partners, including: the Secretariat of the Pacific Community (SPC), Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme (SPREP), the German Agency for International Cooperation (GIZ), the Pacific-Australia Climate Change Science and Adaptation Planning Programme, The Nature Conservancy and the UN Development Programme (UNDP).
