Village youth being spoken to by matai about upholding values that keep peace and harmony in the village.

2 October, 2017. Empowering the Private Sector and the Business Communities to be the driver of the sustainable energy development in the Pacific Island countries and territories (PICTs) is the objective of a weeklong South-South Capacity Building Exchange in Suva, this week.

As part of the Paris Agreement, PICTs have adopted ambitious national renewable energy and energy efficiency targets that are to be urgently installed as part of their contributions to saving their islands and the planet from the effects of climate change. These energy targets will cost billions of dollars and these are real commercial opportunities for the private sector and the business communities.

The exchange is on promoting sustainable energy entrepreneurship in the PICTs and is mostly based on the success stories and experiences in Fiji and other PICTs.
