The EESLI is part of a larger programme being funded by the Government of Italy (Ministry of Environment, Land and Sea and Ministry of Foreign Affairs), in collaboration with the Government of Austria and the City of Milan. The overarching objective of this programme is the reduction of GHGs through implementation of renewable energy (RE) and energy efficiency (EE) projects in the six participating countries. In addition, there are a number of small-scale activities being undertaken under the Special Initiatives component. 

This initiative is coordinated by the Oceania Regional Office (ORO) of IUCN which is located in Suva, Fiji and implemented in six Pacific Island Countries (PICs)1 . The initiative is funded by the Governments of Italy and Austria. The  details of the 6 country projects implemented under EESLI are provided in the project activities section. 

In addition to the six country projects the initiative also includes a number of other activities, usually under the label of “Special initiatives”. The Pacific SIDS EESLI has about 20 special initiatives associated with it.
