ClimateWorks launches Horizon to Horizon Guide for Pacific Island Countries
Under the European Climate Foundation (2050 Pathways Platform)/ IDDRI-funded Pacific Package, ClimateWorks Australia has created a ‘how to’ guide called Horizon to Horizon - A Pacific Island country guide to creating long-term climate resilience, net zero emissions development, and a sustainable future.
The report was launched during Climate Week in New York City. Developed in close consultation with stakeholders from across the Pacific, these materials were tailored specifically for Pacific Island countries, the Horizon to Horizon guide outlines a step by step process to designing a long-term strategy, identifying and solving roadblocks to implementation, and determining financing needs and sources.
A Strategic Mitigation, Adaptation and Resilience Tool (SMART) accompanies the Horizon to Horizon guide. SMART supports decision making by Pacific leaders, by enhancing the understanding of where mitigation actions interact with adaptation and resilience priorities. Combined, these resources aim to simplify the process for developing and implementing long-term, low emissions development strategies while drawing out the interconnected benefits of long-term planning for other strategic country-specific priorities.
