Cooking for Life Programme (CFL)

The project through partnership will promote and increase access to modern, cleaner and more affordable sources of energy for cooking in Kiribati, Tuvalu and RMI. The heavy reliance on fuel wood for cooking have made its mark in the coral atolls like Kiribati, RMI and Tuvalu where the rapidly declining supply have forced people to use kerosene. The use of fuel wood and kerosene for cooking is both an environmental problem in terms of the unsustainable cutting of trees and emissions and a health hazard to women and children mostly

Forum Compact - A Pacific Regional Enabling Mechanism to Achieve Sustainable Development

The Pacific is home to one third of the 52 Small Island Developing States in the world. With the exception of PNG, the rest of the Pacific SIDS are constrained by small administrations and limited economies of scale. Despite universal support for the MDGs, MSI and the high per capita ODA in the Pacific, the region is off track in achieving most of the MDGs by 2015 . Recognising this, the Pacific Isalands Forum Leaders in 2009 agreed to the (Cairns) Forum Compact on Strengthening Development Coordination. The Compact comprises various initiatives including: i) annual Millennium Development G...[more]

Sustainable Living

There has emerged in recent years the prioritization of sustainable production and consumption patters as a key driver of sustainable development. There has also emerged during the preparations of the SIDS Conference and the Post-2015 Development Agenda recognition of culture as an enabler of sustainable development with the usage of phrases such as "culture of sustainable living". The Pacific has also recognized the critical importance of spirituality and religion as key enablers of attitudes and living that is in tune with or based on inclusive and sustainable development principles.
