Master plan of Environmental Impact Study on Deep-Sea Hydrothermal Deposits Mining To establish a master plan for an environmental impact study on deep-sea hydrothermal deposits mining. Minerals (M) Activity/Task 2000
Complete assessment of samples collected during the 1983 clay resources study by the clay consultant In order to evaluate possible occurrences of raw materials for the manufacture of ceramics, samples were collected from a number of sites on six of the islands of the Republic of Vanuatu. These samples were examined mineralogically and chemically, and where possible, subjected to specialised tests to assess their ceramic suitability. Minerals (M) Study 1985

Reducing Vulnerability of Pacific ACP States (Vanuatu Work Plan) Reducing Vulnerability of Pacific ACP States through Integrated Planning and Management (Island Systems Management) at the Sectoral level, especially in the sectors impacting on hazards, aggregates and water resources. The project purpose is to strengthen the capacity of the Pacific ACP States including through: the identification of alternative sources of aggregates for construction purposes; the planning of safe and adequate water supplies and sanitation systems; the development of comprehensive hazard and risk management tools for safeguarding of communities; and the provision of database and management tools for ISM. Disaster Risk Management (DRM) Project 2003
Petroleum Advisory Services The petroleum advisory services for PICs was formerly part of the Regional Petroleum Unit (RPU) that was integrated in to the core energy programme being run from the PIFA. As part of the restructure of the PIFS in 1996 all technical programmes (Energy, Transport, Civil Aviation and Telecommunications) were move out of the PIFS. As part of the process the petroleum component was extracted from the energy programme and remained that the PIFS as part of the Economic and Trade Sector. The core component of energy moving to SOPAC. During 2008 both the petroleum advisory and data positions at the PIFS became vacant and a further reconsideration of the positions and the fact that there was limited funding it was agreed to transfer the data service component to SOPAC. This task was than set up to provide petroleum energy data, information and advisory services to PICs. Energy (E) Programme 2009
Marine geologic and geophysical investigations of the North Fij Basin ( Fiji Plateau) To define a geodynamic model based on both petrologic and geophysical data in: (1) determining the structural configuration of the Fiji Plateau; (2) establishing the nature of the northern and southern boundaries (3) locating and identifying active tectonic elements.
