SOPAC Workshop on Solar pumping (PVP) Solar pumping workshop in Suva was attended by 29 people from 12 countries to promote and learn about the use of solar energy in the supply of freshwater to rural communities. The aims of the workshop were to (1) review the PVP technology and why similar project carried out in the South Pacific failed (2) determine conditions best suited to the use of PVP in rural areas of the South Pacific and compare the costs with other technologies for extracting water from the ground (3) examine the planning procedures for PVP systems (4) identify the criteria to ensure that PVP technology is available to the user at an affordable manner. The workshop was held from 21- 23 May 1997. Water and Sanitation (WS) Workshop 1997

Training and Technical Assistance The identification and provision of training attachments for PIC Nationals and provision of technical assistance as required and requested. Energy (E) Training 2006
Pacific Islands Climate Change Assistance Programme (PICCAP) The US Country Studies Program has funded a study of sea-level rise due to global warming in Fiji Islands on the vulnerability of Suva, and a smaller study in Kiribati on the vulnerability of the most densely populated part of Tarawa. SOPAC was subcontracted by each of the respective countries to carry out these studies on their behalf. The Coastal Unit has the technical expertise and support necessary to conduct quantitative assessment of sea-level rise scenarios, and analyse community vulnerability in conjunction with the GIS database and numerical modelling capability of the Hazard Assessment Unit. As such SOPAC continued beach monitoring of coastal sites as requested, which included the countries of Marshall Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, Kiribati and Tuvalu. This project was coordinated by SPREP but the work was executed by SOPAC Coastal Processes (CP) Programme 1998
Water demand management and conservation in the Pacific Region (continued) This is the paper that SOPAC presented in the WSSCC on "Demand management and Conservation Workshop" held in Norway, from 28th April to 30 April 1997. The presentation was the result of information gathered from Pacific Islands Countries. Each participant in the workshop presented a paper dealing with demand management and conservation from a country, region or specific area such as irrigation, economics and case studies.
