Guidance for coastal protection works in Pacific island countries

Coastal erosion is a perpetual and serious concern for Pacific island countries. Coastal erosion may include various consequences from natural disasters, such as high water levels, sediment impacts on coral reefs, coastal sand extraction on beaches and rivers, and sediment traps. The effects of climate change, such as the rise in sea level, degradation of coral reefs, and increased frequency and intensity of storms, also increase the risk of erosion.

A Public Private Partnership Approach to Climate Finance

In June 2012, the Green Infrastructure Finance Framework Report1 was published to address the constraints in financing green infrastructure and to develop a new approach to accelerate investments in low-emission technologies. This publication followed the Leading Initiatives and Research Report2 that summarized much of the past work and identified remaining gaps. The conclusions of the Research Report formed the basis for the principles of the financial gap analysis and green investment climate assessment methodology proposed in the Framework.
