Government of Fiji

PRRP supports the Government of Fiji’s efforts to achieve resilient development outcomes as outlined in Fiji’s National Development Plans.   It does this in recognition that climate change and disasters can set-back years of development gains, and that ‘unchecked’ development in itself can increase people’s vulnerability. Mainstreaming disaster and climate change risk, including gender and social dimensions, means working from within governance arrangements for development.  Read more

Programme Partners

Live & Learn

PRRP works with LLEE on strengthening governance mechanisms for Disaster Risk Management and Climate Change Adaptation at the community levels.

Pacific Islands Private Sector Organisation (PIPSO)

PRRP supports the Pacific Islands Private Sector Organization through the development of a Fiji Business Disaster Resilience Council (FBDRC) through the Fiji Commerce and Employers Federation. This provides a coordination mechanism for private sector to engage with government and humanitarian actor, and contribute to resilience building, response and recovery activities.

Connecting Business Initiative (CBI)

Connecting Business Initiative works in collaboration with PRRP to support the Fiji Business Disaster Resilience Council and a regional private sector network for disaster risk management through the Pacific Islands Private Sector Organisation.

Protection in the Pacific (ProPa)

ProPa supports development actors to integrate risk and development by providing practical assistance and support to ensure that the gender and social dimensions of risk are given due considerations. As the Pacific works towards achieving the sustainable development goals there is a recognition that risk must be integrated to build resilience. This cannot be achieved without consideration of gender dimensions which lay at the heart of vulnerability and capacity to risk.

Donor Partners

The Australian Government’s Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade

The Pacific Risk Resilience Program (PRRP) is strengthening the resilience to disasters and climate change of four disaster-prone Pacific Island countries – Fiji, Solomon Islands, Tonga and Vanuatu. It is funded by the Australian Government and implemented through a partnership between UNDP and an Australian NGO, Live & Learn Environmental Education (LLEE), which manages the community aspect of this Program. The Program’s major objective is to support a strong enabling environment for risk governance to empower communities to identify risks and needs, and formulate and implement sustainable responses.

Government of Sweden

PRRP is working with the Government of Sweden (SIDA) to integrate gender sensitive responses to climate change within budget process in the programme countries of Vanuatu and Fiji (with the potential to profile Tonga). This will be in partnership with the UNDP Bangkok Regional Hub (BRH) and specifically through the ‘Strengthening the Governance of Climate Change Finance to Enhance Gender Equality’ programme. The overarching objective of this project is to increase the value of public investments that respond to climate change whilst also promoting gender equality, human rights and poverty reduction. The project will be working in the areas of the Budget Process, Accountability, Regional institutions and International policy processes.
