Water and Sanitation Sector Co-ordination Centre Increased co-ordination of agencies and member countries in the field of water and sanitation. The task provided valuable background information on the Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Sectors PIC water authorities, environmental protection agencies, students and researchers, regional organisations, donors and private organisations. Provision of a quarterly newsletter. Dissemination of Sector technical information and research. In addition to this the development and dissemination of information through the Small Island Water Information Network (SIWIN) was established. This network provided a regional archive to store individual country information. Water and Sanitation (WS) Activity/Task 2001, 2002, 2003
Pacific Regional Energy Assessment (PREA 2000) To update the last (1992) Pacific Regional Energy Assessment (PREA) of 1992 by identifying current and future options in the energy sectors of member countries. The last PREA was completed in 1992. Considering that the data and information from the 1992 PREA was nearly nine years old, these assessments still provide the most comprehensive set of energy sector data for most of the Pacific Island countries. The energy sector of Pacific Island countries has been or will be affected by the recent technological and economic changes that the global economy has experienced. A PREA will be a timely attempt to gear the energy sectors of PICs for what is to be expected in the 21 century in particular the climate change issues and the need to address the most appropriate way to reduce GHGs.
