Update:1:55PM THE United States government this morning confirmed a $US24million ($F44million) grant to 12 Pacific Island countries to help mitigate the impact of climate change within the region.

The five-year grant will work on an application basis, whereby civil society organisations (CSOs) which deal with climate change apply to gain funds to get their projects off the ground, explained USAID Pacific Islands mission director Gloria Steele.

"The Pacific-American Climate Fund will support initiatives that will help reduce long-term vulnerabilities associated with climate change and achieve a sustainable, climate-resilient development at community level," Ms Steele said this morning.
