Climate Change Development Authority (CCDA) in partnership with Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI) has conducted a week long training last week with key government agencies in preparation for the Climate change negotiations Conference of parties (COP27) summit to be held in Egypt from 6th to 18th November this year.

The training aimed at equipping PNG participants with technical and political understanding of climate change on international level.

It also helps the participants to understand the history and the position PNG is with the current issues that affect the climate change agenda.

Some of the government agencies participated in the weeklong workshop was CCDA, National Energy Authority, PNG Forest Authority, Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade, Department of Works and Highways, Office of the State Solicitors, Department of National Planning and Monitoring, Department of Prime Minister and NEC and others.

Minister for Environment, Conservation and Climate Change, Simo Kilepa commended the workshop.

“It is interesting to see key agencies of government gather to learn and upscale their capacity to participate in the climate negotiations at the international levels. I am confident that what you and I have learnt from training now prepares PNG well for COP 27.

“As we are looking forward to the complex world of negotiations at the international level, it is important to remind ourselves how climate change is affecting our communities back at home and our country’s position must reflect that,” said Kilepa.

CCDA Acting Managing Director William Lakain was very impressed with the trainings outcome and thanked the partners support.

“I thank the Australian Government for the financial support in delivering this workshop and also, acknowledge the GGGI for the partnership in providing the necessary technical support to ensure this training becomes a success”, Lakain said.

GGGI Country Representative Mr Sakiusa Tuisolia alluded that the training is important and prepares PNG well for the upcoming international event (COP27).

Mr Tuisolia further commented CCDA for initiating the important workshop.
