REGIONAL partners are in Nadi this week to assist in designing a tailored crowdfunding campaign that will help generate funds for various agencies.

The campaign is facilitated by the Disaster Resilience for Pacific Small Island Developing States (RESPAC) Project.

In a statement, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) stated that being a part of the humanitarian cluster, it was mandated to coordinate early recovery activities in crisis response.

“As such, UNDP is seeking a long-term vision towards recovery and enhanced coping methods and resilience for the targeted community,” the statement said.

Once designed, a Pacific-tailored Crowdfunding Campaign would help generate funds to enable agencies to assist in early recovery efforts and post-disaster, with a focus especially on the restoration of livelihoods of vulnerable communities of the Pacific countries and territories.

The workshop is facilitated by the RESPAC project in partnership with UNDP Istanbul Finance Alternative Lab and fully funded by the Russian Federation through the Russia-UNDP Trust Fund for Development mechanism.

The workshop ends on Friday.
