On February 27, the Samoan government announced its support for the creation of a new project called “Climate Action Pathways for Island Transport”(CAP-IT). It is designed to accelerate the decarbonization of Samoa‘s maritime transport sector.

This project aims to promote urgent and inclusive decarbonization by accelerating the uptake of electrical vehicles and exploration of low-carbon propulsion systems to transform Samoa’s land and maritime transport sectors respectively. Planned interventions will adopt an integrated approach to create an enabling environment through strengthened and gender-sensitive institutional governance, financial, infrastructural, and technical capacity development.

This regional “green transformation” project in the Pacific region is funded by Japan with US$36.8 million dollars.
