Australian Aid Friendship Grant for Honiara

ICLEI has received a Friendship Grant from the Australian Government to continue working with Honiara City to develop disaster and climate resilience. 

The main focus of the grant activity in 2019 will be to support the newly elected Ward Councillors to understand the challenges and opportunities associated with climate change and increasingly serious disasters, and to communicate effectively with their local wards, community leaders, and disaster committees. 
If a second phase of funding is approved, relationships will then be established between Australian local governments and Honiara villages to support local action to build more resilient settlements and communities.  ICLEI will partner with RMIT University and Local Government Professionals Australia for parts of the project.
