Wastewater Management Training Programme developed and implemented in Sub-regions The Guam Environmental Protection Agency, in association with UNEP/GPA, SPREP, SOPAC, UOG and UNESCO-IHE Institute for Water Education organised and conducted the training course from 5-10 June 2006. Wastewater Management Training SOPAC has worked with UNEP/GPA, UNESCO-IHE and SPREP to deliver a training course for wastewater management. The first series of training courses were convened in Suva (Fiji), Guam and Port Moresby (PNG) over the work plan period 2005/2006 and will now be followed up with additional training actions for Tuvalu, Kiribati and Tonga, with further replication intended for PNG and Fiji. The course comprised five days of specific training on wastewater management with a sixth devoted to ‘training of trainers’. The wastewater training course is addressing one of the Guiding Principles of the Pacific Wastewater Policy and Framework for Action and is implemented in the Pacific region in 2005-2006 by a consortium of SOPAC, USP-IAS, IOI, in collaboration with SPREP, UNESCO-IHE, GPA/UNEP and UN/DOALOS. A training needs assessment for the Pacific region was carried and three sub-regional wastewater courses have been organised in Fiji, Guam and Papua New Guinea.

Pacific Hydrological Cycle Observing System (HYCOS) Capacity of Pacific island nationals increased in hydrological data acquisition, analysis and interpretation, for improved water resources management, catchment management, IWRM, flood and drought warning and infrastructure design. Water and Sanitation (WS) Activity/Task 2010
Pacific Islands Marine Data and Observations Training Workshop PI-GOOS via the OIP-based Coordinator facilitates regional access to a wide range of remotely-sensed oceanographic monitoring products. In many cases such products are freely available (e.g. NOAA’s coral beaching warning system) however regional awareness of these products and how they can be used is poor. In recognition of this, PI-GOOS partnered with SPSLCMP to jointly resource and organise a data awareness and training workshop in Nadi, Fiji, September 2008. Participants from all member States attended and a range of freely available products were demonstrated, including examples of how such products can be accessed and used to support in-country decision making, planning and environmental monitoring.

Regional information database developed to assist member countries: Pacific Disaster Net Database developed as part of the Pacific Disaster Risk Management Partnership Network. Disaster Risk Management (DRM) Activity/Task 2007
Field Survey Equipment Support for Work Programme An inventory on the equipment held maintained. Regular operational maintenance of field survey equipment completed. Commissioning of new field equipment completed. Pre and post mobilization of field survey activities [all scheduled field activities across all programmes] provided. New equipment, software changes and new developments for existing equipment and, new field survey techniques monitored. Coastal Processes (CP) Equipment 2008
Needs Assessment of Enhanced Asset Management and Planning Tools for Selected Member Countries Needs assessment of establishing or strengthening existing national GIS and Remote Sensing facilities to enable visual representation of information to be provided to professional technical staff as well as policy makers in Cook Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, Marshall Islands, Nauru and Niue. These countries are ACP countries under EDF9 and not included in EDF8. Integration of member countries not covered under SOPAC/EU Reducing Vulnerability of Pacific ACP States.
