SPREP Launches Online Helpdesk for Climate Adaptation

5 November 2010: The South Pacific Regional Environment Programme (SPREP) has launched a new online helpdesk as part of its support to the regional project “Pacific Adaptation to Climate Change” (PACC).

The Online Helpdesk for PACC seeks to provide immediate communication access to key project staff for the 13 PACC participating countries, with a view to responding to immediate requests for information and assistance. Information available upon request ranges from technical aspects of the project, such as climate change science, policy, socioeconomic aspects, vulnerability, adaptation approaches and methodologies, to administration-related matters, including operations, finance, logistics, networking, IT and communications.

The PACC Project is a US$13.125-million project funded by the Global Environment Facility (GEF) and the UN Development Programme (UNDP) and executed by SPREP over the period 2009-2013. [SPREP Press release] [The Online helpdesk]
