National Energy Policy Assist member countries in establishing national energy policy statements to help government in the planning and management of their energy sectors. The ongoing provision of assistance to member countries that have not yet adopted their draft national energy policy statements, and to those member countries that require assistance with the preparation of a rural electrification policy and implementation guidelines. Various assessments of the national energy sectors within member countries have identified the absence of national energy policy statements and guidelines, and that this is one of the major constraints to the effective planning and management of their national energy sectors. This project was initiated in 1993/94 and member countries are now at different levels of progress with the development and adoption of their energy sector policies. The project is to provide on-going, in-country technical assistance as required to those countries that have not yet adopted their national energy policy statements and also to those that require their current policies to be reviewed.

World Water Day 1999, "Everybody lives downstream" Campaign World Water Day is an annual event to help focus on water, its development and consideration and the implementation of the recommendations of Agenda 21. The project provides background material and support on this year's World Water Day Theme 'Everybody Lives Downstream' to SOPAC member countries interested in using the event as an opportunity for water-related awareness campaigns. In 1998 SOPAC's World Water Day campaign mainly focussed on Fiji with some material supplied to four SOPAC member countries (Marshall Islands, Samoa, Niue and Kiribati). The reception of this initiative was very encouraging and so SOPAC assumed responsibility to act as the focal point for World Water Day activities in the Pacific in 1999. The objectives of the project was to gain Public and political interest in focusing on the impact of various activities on water resources and consequently on their daily lives.

Circum Pacific Map Project The idea behind the Circum Pacific Map Project was to compile the available geologic, tectonic and miner, data in order to produce maps of the Southwest Pacific Region. Under this, three maps were required; a) geological map, scale 1:10,000,000, b) tectonic map, scale 1:10,000,000, c) mineral map, scale 1:10,000,000. Of particular was the eastern part of the Southwest Quadrant map, which includes the following countries and islands: Papua New Guinea, Caroline Islands, Marshall Islands, Kiribati, Tuvalu, Nauru, Niue Island, Solomon Islands, New Caledonia, Vanuatu, Fiji, Kingdom of Tonga, New Zealand and parts of the Line Islands and Cook Islands.
