The e-Parliament The e-Parliament is a new global forum for democratic legislators from across the political spectrum. It was designed to deal with a wide range of issues. Its purpose was to help spread and implement good policy ideas. The main set of issues that we have taken up to begin with is climate, energy and ecosystems. Three immediate objectives are: 1. Encourage Pacific Legislators and Governments to improve legislation and governance regarding energy, including renewable energy, and particularly regarding access to energy for the poor. 2. Organise and follow-up on international parliamentary hearings on energy policy to be held in the Pacific region in 2009 and 2010. 3. Assist legislators from the Pacific to participate in international parliamentary hearings in the Caribbean in 2008 and Africa in 2010. Energy (E) Policy and Governance 2008, 2009

Australian Tsunami Warning System – National Capacity Assessment: Tsunami Warning and Mitigation Systems The Australian Bureau of Meteorology (BoM), in partnership with Geoscience Australia (GA) and Emergency Management Australia (EMA), had been provided with $68.9 million funding over four years by the Australian Government to establish the ATWS. The policy objectives of the joint-agency ATWS project were to: (1) Provide a comprehensive tsunami warning system for Australia (2) Support international efforts to establish an Indian Ocean tsunami warning system; and (3) Contribute to the facilitation of tsunami warnings for the South West Pacific. The project aimed to work with and enable SOPAC Member countries to assess their ability to receive, communicate, prepare for, and respond to tsunami warnings. The project identified requirements for further capacity building programmes and assist in directing funds from various potential sources to address these requirements.

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
