Update: 2:10PM REPRESENTATIVES from the food and agriculture sectors from 14 Pacific island countries are meeting in Nadi to share notes and discuss lessons learnt from a five-year pilot project designed to find adaptations to climate change issues faced by their respective communities.

The meeting, which is the final review of the Pacific Adaptation to Climate Change project, began in 2009 and ends in December this year.

Delegates attending the forum called for an extension to the project because of the lessons learnt and successful projects implemented across the Pacific.

The Pacific Adaptation to Climate Change or PACC is a regional project that is implemented by national governments in the Pacific, explained adaptation planning officer for PACC, Peniamina Leavai.

It involves 14 member countries participating and implementing on the ground adaptation projects with communities and the government.

Mr Leavai said the range of projects on the ground involved three development sectors water resource management, integrated coastal resource management and food security.

The five-year PACC project is funded by Australian Aid, GEF, United Nations Institute for Training and Research, United Nations Development Program and the Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme.
