The Global Climate Change Alliance Plus Scaling up Pacific Adaptation (GCCA+ SUPA) is about scaling up climate change adaptation measures in specific sectors supported by knowledge management and capacity building. The 4.5 year project (2019-2023) is funded with € 14.89 million from the European Union (EU) and implemented by the Pacific Community (SPC) in partnership with the Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme (SPREP) and The University of the South Pacific (USP), in collaboration with the governments and peoples of Cook Islands, Federated States of Micronesia (FSM), Fiji, Kiribati, Marshall Islands, Nauru, Niue, Palau, Tonga and Tuvalu.

The first phase of the Global Climate Change Alliance (GCCA), 2007 – 2014, sought to strengthen dialogue, exchange of experiences and cooperation on climate change. The second phase, known as GCCA+ runs from 2014 – 2020, and has three priority areas: (i) climate change mainstreaming and poverty reduction; (ii) increasing resilience to climate-related stresses and shocks; and (iii) sector based climate change adaptation and mitigation strategies.

The Overall Objective of the GCCA+ SUPA project is to enhance climate change adaptation and resilience within ten Pacific island countries.
The Specific Objective is to strengthen the implementation of sector-based, but integrated, climate change and disaster risk management strategies and plans.

The key outputs will be delivered in a coordinated and integrated manner, supported by the three implementing organisations, utilising a gender sensitive/ rights-based approach that places people at the centre of the project and involves all stakeholders.

1.Strengthen strategic planning at national levels:
An impact methodology will be designed to assess past adaptation interventions. After testing in three countries, this will be integrated into a user friendly database module, which can be added to existing national climate change portals so as to inform national decision-making.
2. Enhance the capacity of sub-national government stakeholders to build resilient communities:
A needs analysis will be conducted for local area stakeholders and especially sub-national governments. This will inform the planning and delivery of resilience training within the project.
3. Scale up resilient development measures in specific sectors (food security, water security, human health, coastal protection and marine resources):
Following the design of criteria for scaling up, countries will select specific focus sectors and implement the scaling up of past successful climate change adaptation interventions through enhancement, expansion, strengthening or replication. This will be supported by mainstreaming climate and disaster resilience into sector policies, plans and budgets.

Regional Framework and Partners
GCCA+ SUPA will collaborate closely and seek partnerships with other programmes and projects in the region. The outputs and outcomes will contribute to the Framework for Resilient Development in the Pacific: An Integrated Approach to Address Climate Change and Disaster Risk Reduction (FRDP), the Paris Agreement to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction and the Sustainable Development Goals.
