Pacific Chapter of Internet Society-PICISOC Proposal for promoting Internet to schools and potential new internet users were approved by ISOC. Project was to generate content, publish brochures and distribute it to PICs schools. The purpose of the Pacific Chapter was to promote the use of the internet and raise awareness about it. Information Communications and Technology (ICT) Network 2008
SOPAC Secretariat - Energy Audit At the June (1999) all-staff meeting of SOPAC, the Director requested that the Energy Unit carry out an Energy Audit of the SOPAC office complex. This is to demonstrate to member countries that SOPAC does carry out at home what it preaches. The objective was to identify potential energy saving opportunities within the SOPAC Secretariat and to produce a report detailing the methodology used so that member countries can use it as a reference in their own energy conservation program. General (G) Assessment 1999
Commercial conservation and efficiency booklet To prepare a booklet on energy conservation and efficiency for the commercial sector. Due to the popularity of an earlier publication on energy conservation and efficiency for the commercial sector, this task was revamped and so a booklet on such was produced and distributed to all member countries. Energy (E) Activity/Task 2002
Annotated Bibliography on Gender and Energy The bibliography was compiled to summarize the most important materials on gender and/or women and energy, which refer to the Pacific region, whether written from within or outside of the said regions. Energy (E) Report 2005
Energy Technologies and ICT Improved knowledge, understanding and application of new and developing energy technologies and ICT in all member countries by 2009. Energy (E) Activity/Task 2006
Intergovernmental Conference on Climate Change and Sea Level Rise The Intergovernmental Conference on Climate Change and Sea Level Rise that was held in Majuro, 16-20th July, resulted from an initial SPREP meeting held in 1987 to establish and assess the impact of sea-level rise on the South Pacific nations.Individual countries were to carry out impact studies on their individual areas and a report be made on the actual problems they face. UNEP gave assistance to help in the planning for contingencies of sea-level rise. The purpose of the meeting was two fold: 1) to present the results of research conducted by the ASPEI scientists into the impact of sea-level rise on the environments of the South Pacific nations, and 2) to formulate further plans for counteracting the effects of a sea-level rise on a national and regional level. Coastal Processes (CP) Conference/Forum 1989
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
Ocean Observing Mooring - Ka’imimoana Cruise The objective of the NOAA research vessel Ka'imimoana cruise is to maintain and observe velocity, temperature and conductivity made from moorings deployed. The mooring components are to a) confirm the importance of the tide at two potential hot spots, b) quantify the enhanced level of finescale variability associated with significant mixing, c) provide high-resolution frequency data that can be used to validate the numerical models, d) help in determining the best site and design for the Nearfield experiment.
