Establishment of a Disaster Reduction Unit at SOPAC To strengthen regional disaster reduction programming capacities and to integrate risk management practices within the context of an integrated national planning process of countries in order to achieve long-term community resilience through risk management, sustainable hazard reduction and greater effectiveness in disaster response and recovery management. The purpose of the project is to reduce the compound risks of natural, human induced, technological and environmental hazards through risk management, and to encourage the development of an efficient response and recovery process. Disaster Risk Management (DRM) Programme 2001

Pacific Ocean/Atmosphere Monitoring Program - Pacific GOOS Inception Proposal for SOPAC's involvement with IOC-GOOS in implementing a Pacific Ocean/Atmosphere Monitoring Program (PacificGoos) in the region was submitted. Pacific GOOS was a proposed activity of the Oceans Unit recognizing many inter- linkages with SOPAC's other work areas. It was forwarded through the SPOCC process by the SPOCC Marine Sector Working Group where the concept of a PacificGOOS had been endorsed by SPOCC. The proposal includes the drafting of a strategy plan identifying the goals and objectives, actions, activities, management and policy requirements and general funding plans. During a GOOS Capacity Building Workshop hosted by the Forum Secretariat in Suva, Fiji, thirty participants from twelve countries in the South Pacific agreed to establish PacificGOOS. The workshop took place from 13 to 17 February 1998, with funds for the workshop being provided primarily by the Netherlands Geosciences Commission, the Government of France and the I0C. The South Pacific Geosciences Commission (SOPAC) contributed the secretariat support and local organization. A Coastal GOOS conference is planned for 1999 to initiate PacificGOOS and develop pilot projects. Coastal Processes (CP) Programme 1998

Regional Maritime Boundaries Project - Extended Continental Shelf (ECS) or Art 76 submissions development and coordination In addition to the technical support and capacity building OIP delivers and coordinates to membership ECS countries. OIP in partnership with Geoscience Australia and UNEP GRID has also identified an urgent need to support the development, understanding and compilation of ECS submission documents in all ECS countries (Palau, FSM, Solomon Is., PNG, Kiribati, Fiji, Tonga and Cook Is.). Provide the necessary support to Palau, FSM, Solomon Is., PNG, Kiribati, Fiji, Tonga and Cook Is. to enable the country ECS teams to be able to complete their respective submission documents. In particular, legal and policy aspects, geology and chart production and final compilation. Undertake this in work during ECS workshops and on a "one on one" country specific basis as needed. Country ECS team capacity is built to support their ability to deliver and defend their respective claim submissions Maritime Boundaries (MB) Project 2008
