Pacific Disaster Net Launch Pacific Disaster Net (PDN - is the DRM web portal for the Pacific. It is designed to become the largest and most comprehensive information resource in relation to disaster risk management in the Pacific. Launched on the 18th September 2008 in Suva, the PDN was developed by SOPAC, IFRC, UNDP-Pacific Centre and UNOCHA as an initiative of the Pacific Disaster Risk Management Partnership Network. Disaster Risk Management (DRM) Event 2008
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
Regional Information Exchange At the 1985 meeting of CCOP/SOPAC and STAR, a need was recognised for the exchange of information, particularly on scheduled research cruises, to fully develop future research programmes in the region. The objectives were: (i) to collect detailed information on planned research cruises from institutions and agencies concerned, as well as from STAR National Contact Points, and disseminate it to interested parties on a regular basis at least once a year, and possibly twice a year; (ii) to compile a list of ongoing and planned marine geology projects in the region, with details of objectives, methodology and participants, and to disseminate it to interested parties; (iii) to prepare up-to-date information on planned research projects/cruises in the region for publication in the CCOP/SOPAC newsletters (iv) to promote a Workshop on Management of Marine Science Data and Information to be convened in the near future. General (G) Proposal 1985
Resource Use Solutions Updating and maintenance of the Pacific Islands Regional Maritime Boundary Information System (PIRMBIS). PIRMBIS contains baseline information from maps, and satellite imagery, as well as the computed critical base points, and the extrapolated notional maritime boundaries for Tokelau, American Samoa, Fiji, Vanuatu, Republic of the Marshall Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, Palau, Tuvalu, Kiribati, Cook Islands, Niue and Nauru. Maritime Boundaries (MB) Activity/Task 2007
Pacific Input to the Current Review of the Yokohama Strategy and Plan of Action Identified and Documented To coordinate the Pacific Review of the Yokohama Strategy and Plan of Action. This was a recommendation from the 11th Pacific Regional Disaster Managers Meeting. Disaster Risk Management (DRM) Report 2003
Marine Geology & Geophysics - Age of Seamount Chains R/V Melville carried out a survey on 26 January to 9 March 1999, Leg 1 to determine the age progression of the seamount chains. Uncategorised (UC) Cruise 1999
Map Publication To arrange and supervise the publication and printing of maps, especially prepared for Minerals, Coastal Mapping and Offshore Mapping activities. Coastal Morphology Map of Niue which was published in 1996 and has a scale of 1: 50, 000 is one of the results. General (G) Map/Chart 1995
Joint Regional Energy Meeting (REM2002) Convene a joint regional energy meeting with the Secretariat of the Pacific Communities (SPC) in 2002. Energy (E) Meeting 2002
Bibliography of Geology and Geophysics of the Southwest Pacific The Technical Secretariat commented on the desirability of including Guam in the Bibliography of Geology and Geophysics of the Southwest Pacific, in preparation as a Technical Bulletin and the USA Adviser offered to provide a manuscript listing references for the entire Mid-Pacific Area as soon as possible. He undertook to investigate the possibility of editing and publishing this compilation as a US contribution to both CCOP/SOPAC and CCOP/EA. Data Management (DM) Report 1982
Pacific Island Climate Update The Pacific Island Climate Update (ICU) project is implemented by SOPAC in collaboration with SPREP and the National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research (NIWA) and supported by NZAID. The main output of the ICU process is the publication of a monthly seasonal climate bulletin for the Pacific region with the primary goal of assisting Pacific island countries make informed planning and management decisions across a range of sectors through the provision of timely and accurate seasonal climate forecasts. The ICU bulletin is published by NIWA, previously both in print and online, and distributed to end users across the Pacific region. Since 2009, the print version has ceased in order to devote more resources to develop an improved online presence and accessibility. Uncategorised (UC) Bulletin/Newsletter 2010
