Novotel Hotel Nadi,

Orchid Conference Room 1.

The Regional Industry Standards Advisory Committee for Climate Change Adaptation and Sustainable Energy had their final meeting on May 16-19 at the Novotel Hotel in Nadi.

Representatives of the meeting were from the 15 P-ACP countries involved in the EU PacTVET Project.

This meeting served as the culmination of the October 2015 meeting whereby a needs and gaps analysis was conducted and the agreement was signed to create regionally accredited Certificate programmes in CCA and SE.

The ISACs meeting would be the endorsement of the proposed Certificates I-IV in Resilience and Sustainable Energy, where "Resilience" would incorperate both Climate Change Adaptation and Disaster Risk Reduction.

The group would discuss the competencies of the Certificate courses, which included formal, informal and non-formal education. Other discussions would include the training of trainers, service delivery, as per the needs and gaps analysis of 2015, and the requirements for the course to fulfill both national and regional accreditation.

Additionally, there would be a proposal for an independent body that would certify those who obtain these Certificates and ensure standard regulatory practice in the field of Resilience.
