GCF  Board Members, Secretariat Staff,  ministers of countries in the Pacific, senior government officials, including representatives of the GCF National Designated Entities and Focal points, private sector representatives and civil society organizations  are attending the meeting.

The four- day gathering is an opportunity for countries and Accredites Entities to share their experiences in various programmes fund by the GCF.

According to the GCF Communication department, the dialogue is expected to help Pacific Island countries identify Accredited Entities and private sector organisations to partner with. It will help identify Accredited Entities, including private sector partners to support the project proposals to fight climate change.

This dialogue is  part of the sustained development of a Regional Roadmap initiated in 2016 GCF Regional Meeting which has to help strengthen Pacific Island countries engagement with the GCF.

I’ve started my career as a student in journalism in South Africa in 2001 at Rhodes University in Grahamstown ( Eastern Cape). With a bachelor degree in Communication and Information obtained in France, my native country, I’ve decided to learn investigative journalism in South Africa. So I followed a one year intensive course, studiying journalism specialized on TV, but also Writing and Editing and New Media. During my studies, I followed two internships in Johannesburg. One with Business Day ,a well known South African economic media and the other with Agence France Presse (AFP).
