Sustainable Integrated Water Resources Management in Pacific Island Countries Demonstration Projects designed for IWRM implementation. The Global Environmental Facility (GEF), through UNDP, signed an agreement with SOPAC to develop an innovative programme on Sustainable Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) in the Pacific. The project is being developed by the countries through IWRM Focal Points supported by SOPAC and in collaboration with UNDP, UNEP and partners in the Pacific Partnership Initiative on Sustainable Water Management. The project will support the implementation of the Pacific Regional Action Plan on Sustainable Water Management that aims to improve the assessment and monitoring of water resources, reduce water pollution, improve access to technologies, strengthen institutional agreements, and leverage additional financial resources in supporting IWRM.

Regional proposals submitted to the EU- Water Facility 2 regional proposals were submitted to the EU- Water Facility 1st call for proposals on behalf of the Pacific ACP States. The first one was regarding the Pacific HYCOS Project. A second project to establish a regional IWRM Resource Centre and support of in-country national consultations was unsuccessful in the 1st Call. The proposal was resubmitted in the 2nd Call with results expected in 2006. Water and Sanitation (WS) Proposal 2006
Seismic Profiling and Bottom Sampling between Northern New Caledonia and Ontong Java Plateau Planning for a EVA VITI cruise to be carried out on R/V Coriolis in late 1981 by ORSTOM, including a bathymetric survey of the d'Entrecasteaux Ridge preparatory to a more detailed and precise bathymetric project, using Sea-Beam, on R/V J. Charcot in 1983-1984. GEOVAN II cruise to be carried out on R/V Coriolis in late 1981 to early 1982 by ORSTOM and CCOP/SOPAC, including seismic refraction studies on the d'Entrecasteaux Ridge and on the West Torres Massif. Minerals (M) Activity/Task 1981
Regional Bathymetric Map To update the bathymetry map of the Southwest Pacific region, which was originally compiled and hand drafted in 1983. In 1983 SOPAC produced a geophysical atlas of the South Pacific on a scale of 1: 6442 192, with contour intervals of 500m. This bathymetry chart has been extremely popular, with some 10 000 prints, from two print editions, in circulation. The present map is hand drawn and includes the Southwest Pacific region only. Since the production of this map SOPAC has acquired in its deepsea database, an enormous amount of data including bathymetric information from cruises and surveys in the region. In addition to these, SOPAC has acquired bathymetric data for the Federated States of Micronesia and the Republic of the Marshall Islands, which are both located in the North Pacific region. Consequently, an upgrade of the current chart is both timely and appropriate. It is envisaged that the upgrade will be digital and will include the northern parts of the Pacific as well.
