The Multi-national Geospatial Co-production Program (MGCP) is a coalition of over 30 countries dedicated to producing high-resolution topographic vector data throughout high interest areas of the world. Data is extracted from high resolution imagery in 1° x 1° cells at a scale of 1:50 000. All data produced must meet a minimum horizontal circular error accuracy of 25m and meet MGCP Technical Reference Documentation (TRD) specifications, which details extraction guidelines and feature catalogues to ensure consistency.

The Protected Areas Working Group (PAWG) of the Pacific Islands Round Table for Nature Conservation recommended a forum to better connect a diverse range of people and their work relating to protected and conserved areas. To increase efficacy with respect to gaining momentum with communications and conservation work, the Pacific Islands Protected Area Portal (PIPAP) was launched.

An overview of the purpose and how Aqua Maps work.

The contents represent the culmination of one year’s efforts, including working with the teams of six of the most advanced MPA networks in the region. The process of collecting information for this book involved activities in the field, conducting interviews, consultation workshops and interactions with stakeholders, government and non-government organizations, academic institutions and the private sector.
The work is attributed to the

CBD GUIDELINES The Ecosystem Approach 2004. The ecosystem approach is based on the application of appropriate scientific methodologies focused on levels of biological organization, which encompass
the essential structure, processes, functions and interactions among organisms and their environment. It also recognizes that humans, with their cultural diversity, are an integral component of many ecosystems. The ecosystem approach is essential in guiding action under the various programmes of work of the

It is a 35 paged Evaluation Report on the 7th Pacific Islands Conference on Nature Conservation and Protected Areas event. This evaluation is the result of a questionnaire (Annex 5) handed out at the end of the conference with a 15.3% return rate (47 conference evaluations). The report's structure will be a planning tool for future conferences to measure and assess what worked and what didn’t work at the 7th Conference

Result of survey work conducted between January 1, 1999 and June 5, 1999 in the lagoons of Majuro and Kwajalein Atolls

The Protected Areas Working Group (PAWG) of the Pacific Islands Round Table for Nature Conservation recommended a forum to better connect a diverse range of people and their work relating to protected and conserved areas.

The Gridded Population of the World, Version 4 (GPWv4): Population Density, Revision 11 consists of estimates of human population density (number of persons per square kilometer) based on counts consistent with national censuses and population registers, for the years 2000. A proportional allocation gridding algorithm, utilizing approximately 13.5 million national and sub-national administrative units, was used to assign population counts to 30 arc-second grid cells.

The Gridded Population of the World, Version 4 (GPWv4): Population Density, Revision 11 consists of estimates of human population density (number of persons per square kilometer) based on counts consistent with national censuses and population registers, for the year 2005. A proportional allocation gridding algorithm, utilizing approximately 13.5 million national and sub-national administrative units, was used to assign population counts to 30 arc-second grid cells.

The Gridded Population of the World, Version 4 (GPWv4): Population Density, Revision 11 consists of estimates of human population density (number of persons per square kilometer) based on counts consistent with national censuses and population registers, for the year 2010. A proportional allocation gridding algorithm, utilizing approximately 13.5 million national and sub-national administrative units, was used to assign population counts to 30 arc-second grid cells.

The Gridded Population of the World, Version 4 (GPWv4): Population Density, Revision 11 consists of estimates of human population density (number of persons per square kilometer) based on counts consistent with national censuses and population registers, for the year 2015. A proportional allocation gridding algorithm, utilizing approximately 13.5 million national and sub-national administrative units, was used to assign population counts to 30 arc-second grid cells.

The Gridded Population of the World, Version 4 (GPWv4): Population Density, Revision 11 consists of estimates of human population density (number of persons per square kilometer) based on counts consistent with national censuses and population registers, for the year 2020.

A Pacific information brief from the Pacific Invasives Partnership (a working group of the Roundtable for Nature Conservation in the Pacific Islands)

A 34 paged report on the 11th Meeting of the Pacific Islands Roundtable for Nature Conservation held in Suva and hosted by IUCN, Pacific Council of Churches, WWF, SPREP, USP and FSPI. It reports the decisions made by the Roundtable on the following issues:
1. The Roundtable Charter (and 8 organisations signed the charter) (see annex 1)
2. The need for a Roundtable Officer to be based at IUCN in Fiji to support the Chair and support the work of the Roundtable. Roundtable organizations agreed to see whether they had resources to support this.

The Conference of the Parties (COP) agreed on a provisional list of global headline indicators, to assess progress at the global level towards the 2010 target (decision VII/30), and to effectively communicate trends in biodiversity related to the three objectives of the Convention. In decision VII/30 the COP established a process for testing and developing the indicators, with inputs from SBSTTA, the ad hoc Working Groups on ABS and Article 8(j), and an AHTEG on indicators for assessing progress towards the 2010 biodiversity target.

The study indicated that the sampling locations at an industrial site of Suva City is highly predominated with almost all of the studied metals and is a concern to the general public who live and work within the vicinity of Walu Bay industrial area.
