Certificate in Earth Science & Marine Geology: 2002 - 2004 Cycle In early 2002, planning began for a new three-year cycle of the ESMG Certificate Programme. Following confirmation of funding for the new project (programme courses, student support and in-kind professional support) from the Commonwealth Secretariat, the SOPAC Secretariat was able to execute another three year project and training another batch of PIC nationals in Earth Sciences and Marine Geology. Year I courses ran from August – November 2002. The course was delivered over twelve consecutive weeks. Human Resources Development (HRD) Training 2002
UNESCO Regional Steering Committee and Symposium on Managing Water Resources in Climatic Extremes and Natural Disasters UNESCO inviting PIC representatives as permanent IHP members onto the RSC. Island vulnerability recognised as a major criteria in categorising island hydrology as unique. Water and Sanitation (WS) Meeting 2003
Detrital Minerals in the Solomon Islands Review of the data for favourable targets for neashore gold in the gold bearing sands at Matepona River mouth. This site has high potential for placer deposits. The objective of the review was to establish the progressive development of the project and decide on the next phase. Minerals (M) Activity/Task 1994
Seismic Interpretation As recently carried out in Vanuatu reprocess and interpret selected key seismic lines to enhance the definition of potential prospects and make them more attractive to oil companies as exploration targets. Integrate reprocessed data with all other geological data to improve evaluation of oil and gas prospects (Tonga, Fiji & Solomon Islands). Minerals and Hydrocarbons (MHC) Activity/Task 1996
Marine Habitat Characterisation Crucial to marine resource management and protection, such as for sustainable fisheries development and management, is a detailed understanding of seafloor habitat potential. The OIP’s Marine Survey component has made significant advances in response to this important regional need. SOPAC took a lead role in the organisation of the annual International GeoHab Conference, which was convened in Noumea, New Caledonia in June 2007. GeoHab brings together world leaders in deepwater marine habitat mapping. Geoscience Australia conducted an introductory deepwater habitat mapping workshop with SOPAC for PIC representatives prior to GeoHab and a special meeting was also held in order to present, explain and handover OIP products of the EDF8 and 9 Project. Bathymetric products delivered under the EDF 8 and 9 Project included charts for Fiji, Kiribati, Niue, Nauru, PNG, RMI, Samoa, Tonga, Tuvalu, Solomon Islands and Vanuatu. Coastal Processes (CP) Survey 2007
IT-PACNET 2001 Definition of regional Information and Communication Technology (ICT) policies for CROP. Pacific member countries are serviced by various regional organisations. As a means of maximising the use of resources, it was important that these organisations meet annually to harmonise information and communication technology policies and equipment for the benefit of the region. Information Communications and Technology (ICT) Activity/Task 2001
Task Profile Database Review and Upgrade the Task Profile Database to be more effective as a planning tool for member countries SOPAC work program. Data Management (DM) Project 2000
Regional Community Awareness Raising To improve community awareness in Pacific Island Countries. Emergency Management Australia provided funding to assist with raising the awareness of Pacific Island communities to the hazards and risks that they are vulnerable to. Disaster Risk Management (DRM) Activity/Task 2002
Promote and Seek Support for the Development of Geothermal Energy in the South Pacific The objective of this task was to distribute to member countries and potential developers glossy booklet and other information regarding the geothermal potential of Fiji, Vanuatu, Solomon Islands, Papua New Guinea and Western Samoa. In addition, the aim was to promote geothermal potential at regional and international geothermal workshops. Energy (E) Activity/Task 1996
Upgrade of Communications and Data Storage Improved Internet access, improved data storage and backup. Information Communications and Technology (ICT) Activity/Task 2006
