The Pacific islands are a step closer to having their very own Pacific Climate Change Centre to be hosted at the Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme (SPREP) campus in Apia, Samoa.
A special signing between the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) and Government of Samoa, with SPREP to finalise the minutes of discussion which marks the end of the preparatory survey took place in Apia today. This is the final stage before submission to the Cabinet of the Government of Japan in July, followed by the signing of the Exchange of Notes in August.
