PSIDS: a new agreement for Kiribati and climate change resilience

NEW YORK, JUNE 28 – The 15th meeting of the Joint Committee for the partnership between the Ministry of the Environment and Energy Security and the Small Island Developing States was held on June 27 at the Mission of Italy to the United Nations in New York. The event was attended by representatives of 12 Pacific countries and 4 donor countries, Italy, Spain, Austria and Luxembourg.

The meeting confirmed the strong bond between Italy and the Small Pacific Island Developing States (PSIDS)  in place since the Partnership was set up, and MASE’s engagment by creating environmental cooperation projects that support climate change resilience and development sustainability of the Pacific countries.

During the meeting, the project proposal “Solar Mini-Grid Systems for Vulnerable Communities in the Outer”, presented by the Government of Kiribati, was approved, which, in line with the objectives of the Partnership, aims to install six photovoltaic plants in the most remote islands of the Archipelago to expand the local mini-grid, in order to ensure that local energy demand is met.

Finally, the meeting offered an opportunity to discuss further areas of common interest that can be incorporated in the Partnership’s goals, ahead of their renewal by 2023.
