Overview
• Background on climate change activities in
the Cook Islands
• Key issues, community level activities vs
national level
• Priorities
• Suggestions
PICCAP - Pacific Islands Climate Change
Assistance Programme: Cook Islands 1997 –
2001 GEF UNDP SPREP
Provided
technical assistance, training
University of the South Pacific
Aimed Assist countries to meet their
obligations under the Convention (National
Reporting)
3 Island Specific V&A Assessments
Proposals  3 pilot projects
Pilot Projects
1) CBDAMPIC Capacity Building to Enable the
Development of Adaptation Measures in Pacific Island
Countries
• Formation of Aitutaki Climate Change Community Team
• Training workshop for a core group of village based
facilitators
• Community Vulnerability and Adaptation assessment
through problem/solution identification in villages
• Project proposal development & implementation with
assistance of CIDA, awareness raising, mainstreaming of
climate change
• WATER RESOURCES ADAPTATION OPTION
– Household Drinking Water Tanks
Pilot Projects
2) Assessment of Impacts and Adaptations to Climate Change
AIACC
•
•
•
•
Rapidly developing tourism
Experiencing erosion
Storm surge risks
Risks to water supply
• Research based project
• Modelling of Coastal Inundation on Aitutaki with Storm
Surge & Climate Change
• Training of CI Nationals in use of model for policy
& adaptation planning
Pilot Projects
3) Asia Development Bank Climate
Adaptation in the Pacific (CLIMAP)
• Technical Assistance, not implementation
• Mainstreaming (Ministry of Works), Liason
Team
• 3 Case Studies – Avatiu Breakwater,
Permits and Building controls for wetland
area, National Strategic Plan (WSSD,
BPOA)
Priorities
•Coordination – bringing TAR info to UNCCCC
process in more detail
•Clearer guidelines, optional checklists of possible
methods to integrate climate change into sectoral and
sustainable development plans
•Access to national & international technical
expertise & appropriate technology transfer
•Cost Benefit Analysis
Improve results obtained from simple methods, interview
skills, checklists
Reporting Important
Risk Management and coping ability
Conclusion
