Participation in World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) That Pacific island concerns and issues are adequately addressed in declarations and action plans. Information Communications and Technology (ICT) Activity/Task 2007, 2008, 2009
Climatic Study for Tonga The activity aims to study the climate of Tonga and compares the wind and wave data for the Tonga area. The goal of the study is to find the correction factor that can be used to include the U.K. Met. office model data for wind and waves in the measured data series for the area. This study was part of the Norwegian assistance to SOPAC for the period 1992 -1993. Energy (E) Activity/Task 1993
Sustainable Integrated Water Resources Management in Pacific Island Countries Demonstration Projects designed for IWRM implementation. Water and Sanitation (WS) Activity/Task 2008
Region's interests represented at relevant International conferences, meetings and fora by appropriate participants from member countries Pacific Island representatives attend relevant conferences, meetings and fora and reports received and distributed by SOPAC. Disaster Risk Management (DRM) Activity/Task 2006
Damage and Needs Assessment Training Course The training package was developed to bring uniformity in the method for assessing damage and needs in Pacific Island Countries. The need for this course was identified by all PICs and confirmed by the regional training advisory group. SPDRP started developing some material and tested it out in several countries Human Resources Development (HRD) Training 2000
Reconnaisance and Bathymetric Mapping of the Seafloor A more complete knowledge of the seafloor in EEZs is becoming evermore important in the search for offshore mineral resources. The main objective of this project is to ulilise the new technologies now available thereby providing improved and more detailed coverage of the seafloor for use in the identification of areas prospective for offshore minerals. Uncategorised (UC) Mapping 1986
Regional Energy Meeting (REM2009) and Pacific Energy Ministers Meeting (PEMM2009) PEMM - Recommendations from the Leaders for a REM/PEMM in 2009. Regional Energy Meeting and Pacific Energy Ministers Meeting organised and convened. Summary record for both meetings prepared and disseminated. CD-ROM of papers and presentations for both meetings prepared and disseminated. Energy (E) Meeting 2008
Pacific Integrated Water Resources Management and Water Efficiency Strategies National IWRM plans and Water Use Efficiency Plans established. Water and Sanitation (WS) Proposal 2006
Biomass Resource Assessment Workshop in Tonga An energy mission was carried out in Tonga during the year to assist in the delivery of the Regional Biomass Resource Assessment in Tonga and to discuss the SOPAC UNESCAP Training Needs Assessment on Renewable Energy. In addition to the workshop, discussions on the Training Needs Assessment on Renewable Energy, the Demand Side Management Project and other general ongoing energy activities with the countries were also held. Whilst in Tonga, a stakeholders meeting was held at the Tonga Community Trust regarding the Rainwater Harvest Project. Energy (E) Workshop 2003
Delineation of sediment in time and space The purpose of the project was to delineate distribution of sediment bodies of different ages and produce stratigraphic and isopach maps of the region. Also to establish from detailed stratigraphic analysis of the various sedimentary bodies ( facies relationships, paleoenvironments, sediment provenance). Project was proposed in the 9th Session & revised in the 12th Session. Uncategorised (UC) Assessment 1984
