The Floating University for the Pacific Islands is a proposed platform for early-career scientists from Pacific Island nations to explore and resolve the key issues affecting their countries and communities.
Early Career Ocean Professionals (ECOPs) are tomorrow’s leaders for healthy and sustainable oceans. PCCOS created the Pacific ECOP Network in 2021, mobilising and connecting Pacific ECOPs working in various sectors across the region.
The Pacific Solutions to Save Our Ocean – Integrated Ocean Management Programme aims to leverage the spate of national ocean policies (NOPs) launched in the Pacific in recent years to address the need for greater integrated ocean management (IOM). This programme is endorsed by the Ocean Decade and seeks to increase scientific capacity and create opportunities for ocean science to feed into decision making.
The main purpose of the Climate Resilient Marine Spatial Planning project is to support the Republic of Palau government and other Pacific Island countries in developing marine spatial plans (MSP) informed by the best scientific information available, including climate change scenarios, paving the way to a sustainable, inclusive, and resilient ocean-based economic development.
