Monitoring of the Capacity Building for International Negotiations programme will begin on completion of the delivery contract, which is currently being finalised following procurement. As with all BEIS International Climate Finance funding, the programme will be monitored and reported upon in line with cross government good practice, including the publication of annual reviews of progress on implementation, financial reporting and value for money. This will include activities conducted in the Pacific region.

The German Development Agency GIZ (who are setting up the Pacific Regional Nationally Determined Contributions Hub) are submitting quarterly reports to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office on how funds are being spent and progress against pre-agreed indicators. In addition, the British High Commission in Suva meet GIZ at least once a month.
