The Pacific Island work of Carbon Partnership falls into two categories:
Since November 2010 Carbon Partnership has been lead consultant to the Pacific Regional REDD+ Policy Framework drafting process. This initiative is a subset of a larger project by the Secretariat of the Pacific Community (SPC) and the German Aid Programme (GIZ) entitled: Climate Protection Through Forest Conservation in the Pacific Islands.
This Policy Framework is being developed with forestry leaders of the 14 SPC member states, with a timeline for adoption by the Pacific HOAFS Ministerial meeting in September 2012.

Since 2006 Carbon Partnership has worked closely with the Vanuatu Government to develop its national forest carbon management programme. This has included:
Carbon Partnership provides forest carbon project design and technical support services to Live & Learn Environmental Education in its community forest carbon projects in the Solomon Islands, Vanuatu and Fiji. These projects are being developed to the Plan Vivo Standard and will operate in the international voluntary carbon market.
