The second Climate Action Pacific Partnership (CAPP) Conference, organized by the Fijian Presidency of the 23rd session of the Conference of the Parties (COP 23) to the UNFCCC, will bring together leaders from Pacific small island developing States (SIDS), government representatives, civil society, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), investors and financiers, regional organizations, international development partners and the private sector.
The overall aim of the conference is to help mobilize the partnerships and investment needed to accelerate climate action in the Pacific, in support of the more ambitious target of keeping the global temperature increase to within 1.5°C and to achieve net-zero emissions as soon as possible. The meeting will seek to: showcase and discuss the various opportunities and challenges in the Pacific in accelerating climate action; present Pacific issues, including high-level messages from participating Pacific SIDS leaders, to the UNFCCC Talanoa Dialogue; and firm up the Pacific climate action plans for the thematic areas.
