Pacific Islanders are living the reality of climate change. Storm surges, flooding, drought, coral bleaching and more are disproportionately impacting communities across Melanesia, Polynesia and Micronesia.
Our Pacific Resilience Fund is designed to support the strength and innovation demonstrated by Pacific Islanders in responding to climate change. We focus on supporting medium-term strategies informed by customary knowledge that build resilience on a community level.
"Through discussion and sharing of songs it was apparent that as Indigenous people we are all fighting to protect our ancestral lands, and for this reason we must share our stories, learn from one another, and stand together in solidarity. The moments shared with our guests and the powerful people we encountered along the way broadened my perspective of the injustice that so many of our Indigenous brothers and sisters around the world, are facing each day."
-Chesa Abma, Xwsepsum Nation, on hosting artists from the Sepik region of Papua New Guinea
Pacific Peoples' Partnership is proud to foster nation-to-nation relationships between the Indigenous people of the North Pacific, Melanesia, Polynesia and Micronesia. For forty years, we have also produced a regular publication featuring critical voices from across the Pacific.
Arts & Culture
Pacific Peoples' Partnership celebrates our 'Wan Solwara' - one people connected in spirit by our shared Pacific ocean.
Through arts and cultural programming, we create space for cultural expression and learning in our own community.
Pacific Peoples' Partnership is proud to have produced over forty years of programming that centers women as agents of change. From developing women's leadership in environmental management to creating women's networks across conflict-ridden West Papua, we have consistently shown a commitment to gender equity across the Pacific.
