The two organisations committed to become partners in this project following separate consultations carried out in July.
The new partnership will support the use of climate information to build resilience and manage climate risks impacting the tourism sector in a negative way.
Additionally, the partnership will ensure that activities and programs are carried out collaboratively to promote sustainable development for the Tourism industry.
Some of the planned activities for implementation under the Van-KIRAP project are undertaking awareness sessions and face to face discussions with the tourism sector and stakeholders sharing with them relevant information about the project and understanding and using climate information for the sector.
The Van-KIRAP Tourism sector Coordinator Moses Bani conducted an awareness session with the DoT and Productive Sector Manager Warren Gama of the VSP. The Vanuatu Skills Partnership previously known as TET program is an Australian funded program working closely with the Ministry of Education & Training and Provincial Government to support and strengthened the skills system in Vanuatu through coordinated delivery of training to members of the community.
An MOU has been signed between the DoT and VSP to work in partnership to facilitate training for tourism operators.
