Climate Change and Environmental Sustainability

HIGHLIGHTS

Recycling @ SPC

Environmental Management System was implemented in each SPC office. This is done through communication on sustainable practices and exchange with staff, and through the implementation of emission reduction actions.
Our last step in September 2016 was the establishment of 100 % waste recycling in Nouméa Headquarters.

Project objectives

RESCCUE is a regional project implemented by the Pacific Community (SPC).

Overall goal

The overall goal of RESCCUE is to contribute to increasing the resilience of Pacific Island Countries and Territories (PICTs) in the context of global changes. To this end RESCCUE aims at supporting adaptation to climate change (ACC) through integrated coastal management (ICM), resorting especially to economic analysis and economic and financial mechanisms.
