Comprehensive Hazard and Risk Management (CHARM) Programming Pacific island countries are exposed to increasing vulnerability arising from societal changes wrought through development programmes and the widening range of hazards. The important risks threatening sustainable development need to be identified and properly managed as island systems have narrow resource bases hence quickly vulnerable to mismanagement. Thus there is need to build capacity in all client countries enabling disaster managers and planners to formulate and implement comprehensive hazard and risk management programmes to enhance sustainable development planning. Hazards (H) Programme 2002
Pacific Danish Environmental Education Program (continued) To assist member countries with their wind power development programmes through capacity building. Energy (E) Activity/Task 2002
Public Education and Awareness To educate the Pacific audience on appropriate or best practices in the sectors within SOPAC’s mandate through products such as press releases, information notes, and special-publications/resource materials. Also, to monitor feedback on the use of information produced, compiled and/or distributed by SOPAC. Uncategorised (UC) Activity/Task 2001
Japan/SOPAC Deep Sea Mineralisation Programme: Phase II Phase 2 of the Japan Deep Sea Mineralisation Programme for prospecting and study of deep sea mineral resources and its potential in the Pacific Region. The Programme is an initiative of the Metal Mining Agengy of Japan (MMAJ) with funding contribution from Japan International Coperation Agency (JICA). The primary purpose of the programme was for the exploration for manganese nodules and cobalt crusts and later the primary exploration of hydrothermal ore deposits in island arc regions of Vanuatu, Solomon Islands and Papua New Gunea. Phase 2 of the progarmme was for five years. Minerals (M) Programme 1990 - 1995
Coastal Geology Training Course A two week training course on Coastal Geology was held for CCOP/SOPAC island member countries at the South China Sea Geological Headquarters. The objective is to provide CCOP/SOPAC island country nationals the opportunity to visit China to attend a course on coastal geology and observe their coastal management programme. Training was designed to obtain relatively systematic knowledge on geology in coastal areas and survey technology through classroom lectures combined with field and laboratory visits. Human Resources Development (HRD) Training 1987

Demand Side Management Project Review and report on the current status of DSM activities within SOPAC member country electric power utilities; determine the most appropriate technologies and methodology for the implementation of a DSM programme; prepare a detailed programme design; and the implementation, management and reporting for at least three demonstration DSM projects. Energy (E) Project 2005
Technical Publication – Coconut Oil as a Biofuel Technical publication prepared and printed. Energy (E) Activity/Task 2004
The Study of Energy Release and Seismicity in the Southwest Pacific Revised in the Proceedings of the 8th Session and the recommendation made was to install and operate a seismic network in Tonga as New Zealand offered, if requested, to set up and run a seismic station in Tonga as part of its SW Pacific regional network (including to date New Zealand, Western Samoa and Cook Islands); New Zealand strongly recommended that Techsec. was to coordinate this offer with the proposed expansions of other regional seismic networks to include Tonga. Energy (E) Study 1982
Pacific Islands Climate Update (ICU) ICU produced, published monthly and disseminated to the climate sensitive sectors including water managers, energy managers and disaster managers in PICs. The NZ funded ICU Programme is being implemented by SOPAC in collaboration with SPREP and NIWA. The ICU continues in its 7th year as a multi-national and multi-organisational climate bulletin with the primary goal of assisting Pacific Island Countries (PICs) in making informed planning and management decisions relating to their climate-sensitive sectors through the provision of timely and accurate seasonal climate forecasts.
