Global Ocean Observing Systems (GOOS) To co-operate and collaborate with international ocean observing system initiatives such as the Triangle Trans-Ocean Buoy Network [TRITON] and the Argo Project [Argo] enabling easy buoy and float deployment, maintenance and retrieval, and data and product access and use. In-situ ocean observing systems such as the TAO/TRITON array and Argo have been developed to improve our ability to describe, understand and predict the state of the ocean, as well as its influence on climate change and variability. It can also be used to predict ocean fronts and changes in fish migration patterns in the region. Consequently, such data and resulting products and information will enable SOPAC member countries to manage climate and environmental change and variability through considered adaptation and mitigation actions.

Inaugural Meeting of the Pacific Water Association and Trade Show The first meeting of Pacific water and wastewater utility managers was hosted by the Western Samoa Water Authority in Apia, Western Samoa on 27-28 July 1995. At this meeting there was unanimous support for the formation of an independent Pacific Water and Wastewater Association. The meeting selected a Steering Committee (consisting of members from the Western Samoa Water Authority, UNELCO, Vanuatu and the Papua New Guinea Water Board) to prepare Terms of Reference for the appointed consultant (the Pacific Power Association) to establish the proposed PWA, more details can be found in SOPAC Miscellaneous Report 202: "Report on a Meeting to Discuss the Establishment of a Pacific Wafer Association”. The Pacific Water Association Inaugural Meeting was held from 22- 24 August 1996. Water and Sanitation (WS) Meeting 1996

Sustainable Integrated Water Resources and Wastewater Management in Pacific Island Countries Implementation of IWRM demonstration projects in Pacific catchments or aquifers with the Global Environment Facility (GEF) and implementing agencies UNDP and UNEP under the Pacific Alliance for Sustainability (PAS). The demonstration projects are linked to the Pacific IWRM Planning Programme funded by the European Union Water Facility. Water and Sanitation (WS) Project 2009
Pacific Energy Newsletter (PEN) To establish a closer link between SOPAC's regional energy program and the member countries, donors, CROP agencies and others who are involved in the development of the energy sectors of member countries. To keep the PEN readers advised, on a quarterly basis, on the recent developments in the regional energy scene and selected ones from the member countries. It is expected that PEN will assist in creating a networking among its readers. Energy (E) Bulletin/Newsletter 2001

TAO/TRITON Project for Scientific Cruises to Service the Buoys To conduct oceanographic and meteorological measurements in their EEZ. A blanket clearance is required to service and repair the buoys on short notice in case of damage to the sensors. The buoys are located in the EEZ of Kiribati, Tokelau, Tuvalu, Nauru, Federated States of Micronesia, Solomon Islands, Papua, New Guinea and Palau. Cruises (C) Activity/Task 1997
