The third Climate Action Pacific Partnership Conference (CAPP III) will be held on 29 and 30 April 2019 at the Grand Pacific Hotel in Suva, Fiji. The traditional welcome will take place on the evening of 28 April, 2019.
Emphasising the need for urgency as we fast approach 2020, and the actions required to keep the 1.5°C target alive, CAPP III sessions will be framed around the Talanoa Call for Action that was presented at COP24 in Poland last year.
The conference will also be a platform to amplify the voice of Pacific Island Countries in the UN Climate Summit in September this year.
Participants will be engaged in two days of lively discussions on how climate action can be accelerated, and transformative changes achieved in the Pacific, and how this can inspire action globally. Discussions will also capture efforts made to increase resilience in Pacific Island Countries and support the work of the Pacific Resilience Partnership Taskforce. Progressing the work of the Regional Pacific NDC Hub and the Ocean Pathway will be areas of focus in the
The CAPP Conference is organised back-to-back with the Pacific Resilience Meeting (PRM) and the EU-GCCA+ meeting. The three meetings are planned to complement and build upon each other, with sessions flowing from one event to the other.

Participants will represent different sectors, coming from various organisations including – government, private sector, non-governmental organisations, civil society organisations, development partners, regional organisations and faith-based groups.
