Joint side event by the Republic of Kiribati and the Republic of the Marshall Islands: Securing our Future in our Blue Pacific

September 27 | 3 p.m.–6 p.m. | Conference Room 5 (or JCO Boardroom)

The governments of Kiribati and the Marshall Islands are convening a side event at the margins of the 74th United Nations General Assembly to discuss ongoing efforts to address climate change and commit to and accelerate actions under priority areas pursuant to the SDGs and the SIDS Accelerated Modalities of Action (SAMOA) Pathway. It also presents an opportunity to hear Voices of the Youth, listen to the “future they want” and discuss ongoing programs, initiatives and projects implemented by both countries in their efforts to secure their future.

During the event, the new version of the Kiribati Joint Implementation Plan (KJIP) for Climate Change and Disaster Risk Management will be launched. The document was developed with support from the NAP Global Network through the In-Country Support Program for Kiribati.
