Establishing an Oceanographic Observation Network in the Asian and Western Equatorial Pacific Regions Participants from Nauru, Samoa and Tuvalu attended a six-week training workshop on Establishing an Oceanographic Observation Network in the Asian and Western Equatorial Pacific Regions in Japan during October-November 2002. This is the third time that such a workshop has been convened in Japan. Coastal Processes (CP) Workshop 2002
Wave Energy Database transfer and Training Setting up of a wave energy database at the Secretariart to hold data for wave data collection sites from Cook Islands, Fiji, Tonga, Tuvalu, Vanuatu and Samoa. The database will be transferred from OCEANOR to Suva and housed at the Secretariat. Data collection would have concluded by than in the countries for which wave data is being collected. The continuity of wave data collection was also developed to facilitate ongoing data collection from the Secretariat. Energy (E) Training 1992
South Pacific Sea Level and Climate Monitoring Project [Phase III] Support Reports on the results of monitoring activities of the SPSLCMP - Phase III, with interpretive maps and other products- all PICs; Counterpart training for infield activities (selected PICs); Maintenance and operations of SeaFrame carried out in seven countries, with geodetic surveys completed in seven countries and maintenance of cGPS sites in five countries. Training module delivered in CESMG course and USP VA Course; Maintained database of data and information from SPSLCMP-III Project. Archive established and updated. Coastal Processes (CP) Survey 2004
Coastal Change Analysis Using Multi- Temporal Image Comparisons in Funafuti Atoll This work was initiated by the SOPAC/ EU EDF Reducing Vulnerability of Pacific States Project. Multi-temporal analysis of historical aerial photos and satellite images were utilised to address work tasks developed during the multistakeholder meeting between representatives of the SOPAC / EDF Project and the Tuvalu Government and community. Shoreline change and processes were analysed on Funafuti Atoll by the comparison of digitally rectified 1941, 1943, 1984 aerial photographs with a 2003 IKONOS geo-referenced satellite image. Analysis of the digitally enhanced historical images also allowed the interpretation of past land and vegetation types, which in turn provides an insight into historical land forms on Funafuti. Coastal Processes (CP) Activity/Task 2006
Demonstration PV Systems for Telecommunications To demonstrate that a solar back-up system can be used cost efficiently to provide power for communication and security night lighting when mains power is interrupted. Energy (E) Activity/Task 2000
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
Energy Technology/ Information Database (continued) The preparation of an information database of energy projects and technologies within the Pacific region and the establishment of guidelines for the updating and maintenance the database as a reference source for the future. Energy (E) Activity/Task 2002
Regional Marine Minerals Policy Workshop The SOPAC Marine Minerals Policy Workshop was held at the Hotel Santo, Luganville, Vanuatu from 16-20 September 1991, immediately prior to the SOPAC Annual Session. 23 participants attended from 11 island member countries of SOPAC, together with fourteen from other institutions and agencies. Minerals (M) Policy and Governance 1991
INET/ICANN 2002 To participate in the annual meeting of INET and ICANN to defend Internet interest of Pacific Islands. Information Communications and Technology (ICT) Meeting 2002
Certificate in Earth Science and Marine Geology (ESMG) The Certificate in Earth Science & Marine Geology started the first year of a three-year cycle in 1999. While the introductory course was held in 1999, subsequent Courses in 2000 are SCC21: Earth Materials; SCC22: Marine Geology and Earth History; and in 2001, SCC23: Earth Resources & Mapping; SCC24: Earth Science in Development Projects, Hazards and SCC25: Hydrology/ Hydrogeology. The political unrest in Fiji in the year 2000 saw the course moved back by a year, therefore completing the 3 year cycle in 2002 as opposed to the original plan of completing it in 2001 Human Resources Development (HRD) Training 1999
