The Pacific Young Women Responding to Climate Change project will provide Pacific young women with training and opportunities to access climate change science services; and to engage in the local and national disaster and climate change policy conversation.
ActionAid is working in partnership with the Shifting the Power Coalition (StPC) on this project to support women to lead emergency responses and claim power in times of crisis. The StPC is responding to the increase in climate change induced disasters across the Pacific; supporting them with the training, technology and networks to act on climate change.
The project supported by the Australian Government’s Australia Pacific Climate Partnership (ACPC).
The project will build on intergenerational and cultural knowledge to grow young women’s leadership on climate change. It will support 150 young women from six Pacific Island countries; Fiji, Papua New Guinea (PNG), Samoa, Tonga, Vanuatu and Australia.
