Pacific Energy and Gender (PEG) Network Gender mainstreaming activities in the energy sector. Energy (E) Activity/Task 2005
Institut de Recherche pour le Développement (IRD) El Niño/ENSO Phenomenon Study R/V Alis Study the regional impacts at different time scales of El Niño/ENSO phenomenon. Different kinds of data are so used such as direct hydrological observations from in situ scientific equipment, sea surface temperature, salinity, oxygen, nutrients, and direct measurements both from Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler measurements and a L-ADCP coupled with a Sea-Bird CTD-Carousel Water Sampler lowered from the ship. Drilled massive corals samples used as proxies (through the chemical contents of their skeleton covering several centuries with a monthly or a weekly time scale). Cruises (C) Proposal 2000
4th Session of CCOP/SOPAC and its Technical Advisory Group (TAG) The session was attended by representatives of SOPAC Member countries than with the exception of Papua New Guinea who was unable to send a representative to the session. The governments of Nauru and Trust Territory (now known as the independent countries of the Republic of the Marshall Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, The Commonwealth of the Northern Marianas and the Republic of Palau) of the Pacific Islands each sent an observer to be part of the 4th Session. The Gilbert (Kiribati) and Ellice Islands (Tuvalu) were also officially welcomed as members of the CCOP/SOPAC. General (G) Meeting 1975
Hydrology Support Programme Regional support mechanism established for water resources monitoring and assessment. Water and Sanitation (WS) Proposal 2007
Remote Sensing for Geohazard Assessment and Coastal Development Planning Continue to process and evaluate remotely sensed data and merge with other available data to assist member countries in the assessment of geohazard risks and coastal features and coastal vulnerability, Coastal Processes (CP) Activity/Task 1995
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.
