Abstract

Increasingly practitioners and policy-makers recognise the importance of integrating disaster risk management (DRM) and climate change adaptation (CCA). This approach has been adopted by the European Union Pacific Technical Vocational Education and Training on Sustainable Energy and Climate Change Adaptation Project (EU PacTVET) project.

A key barrier to improving national resilience to disaster risk and climate change impacts has been identified as a lack of capacity and expertise resulting from the absence of sustainable accredited and quality-assured training programmes.

TVET modules and tools developed under the EU PacTVET project will establish a community of practitioners supporting community resilience in Oceania.
