Launch of Course on Coastal Development and Climate Change for Officials from Pacific Island States

The Advanced Course on Coastal Development and Climate Change, funded by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation (Directorate General for Globalization) and intended for officials from the Ministries of Environment, Agriculture, Tourism and Economic Development of Pacific Island States, such as the Cook Islands, Marshall Islands, Nauru, Palau, Timor-East, Tonga, and Tuvalu, started today in Tricase at the CIHEAM Bari premises.

In line with the European Union's Indo-Pacific Strategy, the training program will focus on environmental challenges caused by climate change, such as sea level rise, extreme weather events and marine pollution. The objective of the course is to prepare participants to address these threats by providing them with the skills needed to assess environmental impacts, develop adaptation strategies, and promote sustainable coastal development.

Through in-depth lectures, engaging interactive activities, technical visits, and meetings with local stakeholders, this training provides a crucial opportunity to develop innovative and sustainable solutions to the growing environmental challenges in Pacific islands.
