SOPAC Regional Co-ordination Role in Disaster Management This task was initiated in response to decision by the leaders participating in the 1995 Forum meeting in Madang with the purpose of liaising and cooperating with other agencies to maintain and also establish new programs in coastal management and hazard assessment. Efforts to take a cohesive and planned approach to disaster management in the South Pacific began in the late 1970s with a series of disaster awareness seminars and the early development of national disaster plans. During the 1980s, the Pacific Island Disaster Program produced several publications on disaster preparedness, NGO training programs were developed and supported by the Australian Overseas Disaster Response Organisation (AODRO). In the 1990s, disaster management increasingly took on a regional flavour with regular annual IDNDR regional meetings and discussions at Forum meetings. A proposal for a regional coordination unit in the South Pacific Forum Secretariat was approved in principle by the FOC in 1994; however, a review of the Forum Secretariat operations in late 1995 recommended that SOPAC be the lead agency for coordination of disaster management in the region.
