120 Samoan villages will be shown capacity building skills for climate change as part of a 242 thousand US dollar grant awarded to Samoa's umbrella group for non governmental organisations, SUNGO.
The group said the funds would be used for a two year training programme.
The grant from the US Agency for International Development was launched on Monday.
SUNGO president, Roina Vavatau, said 50 percent of Samoans live around the coastline and they lived off the sea or land.
