Samoan language, tailored to different audiences, such as forestry planners and members of rural communities. 85. LDCF resources will be used to create synergies with initiatives that are linked through policy processes and applying similar tools, such as FAO/GEF Forestry and PAM Project, JICA National Parks Project, the current Sustainable Land Management (SLM) Project, the UNEP/GEF Regional Invasive Species Project, the EU Water Project, IWRM Project and the proposed UNDP/GEF5 Project on Land Degradation. 86. CLEWS and related climate information services will be extended to the forestry sector through LDCF funds. The relevant climate parameters will include temperature, rainfall, humidity, soil moisture and the trends in extreme events such as cyclones, droughts and floods. MD staff will be trained in the collection and analysis of climate data and the preparation of climate reports for the forestry sector. Forestry planners, GoS officials, project staff and communities will also be trained in the interpretation and analysis of climate information, as well as their prioritization for and application to the planning and implementation of adaptation activities. The Forestry CLEWS is strongly liked to the ICCRA&HSS project (agriculture and health) the PACC Project (coastal) and the AusAID-funded NAPA 4 Adaptation Project (water resources, forest fires, landuse planning and tourism). 87. The project will support the preparation and application of a Forest Fire Prevention Strategy and related manual (FFPM), integrating climate risk information and linked with CLEWS. It will set out the functions and responsibilities for the different agencies, communities and individuals, and prescribe relevant climate-resilient responses for each group of actors. Training will also be conducted for FESA officials, forestry planners and project staff on the application of the FFPM to forest management and fire prevention, both at the national and local levels. The FFPM output of the project will build on the Forest Fires component of the NAPA4 Project. Outputs and Indicative Activitie s 88. The following outputs and indicative activities serve to enhance overall institutional capacity of the Forestry Division and institutional coordination with related Ministries and Divisions, through revising existing forestry policy frameworks, developing and building capacity on planning and decision making tools integrating climate risks. These measures are aiming at creating an enabling environment to support the implementation of the on-the-ground adaptation interventions under Outcome 2, develop decision making tools covering the country’s entire forest areas, policy frameworks and related institutional capacity that will facilitate the upscaling and replication of climate-resilient forestry practices nationwide: Output 1.1. Revised policy frameworks (National Policy on Sustainable Forest Management, Forestry Management Bill), and new National Forest Sector Plan developed with climate change risks integrated Indicative activities:
