AOSIS Climate Change Fellowship Program
In 2014 AOSIS established the Climate Change Fellowship Program. The program brings early career professionals from AOSIS member
countries to New York for one year to participate as part of each Fellow’s national delegation to the UNFCCC and UNHQ.
Each year, candidates are selected to spend a year based in New York following climate change issues, including attending
all major UNFCCC meetings. Fellows are expected to spend 80% of their time on AOSIS related matters and 20% on national issues.

Worst Bleaching on Record for Great Barrier Reef: scientists

Aerial surveys of Australia's Great Barrier Reef have revealed the worst bleaching on record in the icon's pristine north, scientists said Tuesday,
with few corals escaping damage. Researchers said the view was devastating after surveying some 520 reefs via plane and helicopter between
Cairns and the Torres Strait in the north of Queensland state. "This will change the Great Barrier Reef forever," Terry Hughes, an expert on coral
reefs from James Cook University, told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation.

Working Definition of Resilience Building in Island States

The ability of small island states to become less vulnerable and more capable to respond and recover from the disruptions and destruction associated
with increasing greenhouse gas concentrations, including more ferocious and frequent hydro-meteorological events, severe impacts from sea-level
rise, and increasing ocean temperature and acidity, by development and efficient use of the natural resource endowment. The ability to respond and
recover is linked to national capacity which determines the ability to extract and efficiently utilize energy, food and water from the natural resource
base.

Building Climate Resilience in Island Nations Through Sustainable Energy

Program of Activities

Vulnerability Decision Support

Lay out a process for assessing the level of vulnerability of the regional energy sector to the impacts of climate change and potential consequences on the population and economy of the Caribbean Islands; and provide an appropriate methodology that can assist countries to undertake sustainable energy option comparisons that will inform decision making, including a definition of climate resilience for island communities and national economies.

RE & EE Knowledge and Challenges

Enhance understanding of how renewable energy and energy efficiency projects can help countries build climate resilience, as well as a review of the obstacles to greater deployment of renewable energy technologies and energy efficiency practices, with input from the work carried out in Activity 1 – Vulnerability Decision Support.

Energy Sector Integration

Identify priority actions to make the energy sector a foundation for climate resilient economies within the context of ongoing regional activities such as the CARICOM Energy Policy and Caribbean Sustainable Energy Roadmap and Strategy (C-SERMS), the Caribbean Centre for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (CCREEE), the Caribbean Development Bank’s recent energy policy; the 11th EDF (European Development Fund), and the US-CARICOM energy security initiative.

 

RE & EE Regional Workshops

Plan to convene two regional workshops on renewable energy and energy efficiency for building climate resilience in Caribbean communities and national economies to share the information generated and to prepare a draft regional programme for building energy sector resilience to climate change.
