Pacific Regional Federation for Resilience Professionals (PRFRP) was established in 2017 with the aim to promote networking and to professionalize climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction practice – collectively known as ‘resilience’.
PRFRP aims to serve the needs of the Pacific region by raising the profile of climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction / management and their linkages to sustainable development across a broad range of sectors.
The PRFRP will work towards creating an enabling environment in the region for the application of resilience best practice to support all communities.
PRFRP’s members comprise of organisations and individual stakeholders such as: Non-Governmental Organisations, training institutes; Universities; private sector green and sustainable energy businesses; industry associations, utilities; government departments; multilateral and bi-lateral donors; international agencies and individuals.
PRFRP was initially established through funding support provided by the European Union funded Pacific Technical and Vocational Education and Training on Sustainable Energy and Climate Change Adaptation Project (EU-PacTVET).
PRFRP is managed by an executive committee and has a very close working relationship with Pacific Centre for Environment and Sustainable Development (PaCE-SD).
