Welcome to the December 2014 edition of the PREEN Newsletter. This edition has been compiled by the new ODI Fellow of SPC’s  Geoscience and Division (GSD), James Jolliffe, who joined GSD in October 2014 after the departure of out-going PREEN coordinator, Anna Rios Wilks. Anna has now returned to the UK and we would like to thank her for all her support to the PREEN, as well as wish her every success in her new life.

This edition includes details of current projects in the field including the economics of coastal management and climate finance for Pacific forest management. You will find information on recently released reports, as well as recent training events in locations throughout the Pacific.

We welcome new articles as they emerge so please do share your new findings, projects and events with us to keep the network informed of developments in the Pacific.

Best wishes for a merry Christmas and a happy new year,

Newsflash

Much has been said about rising sea levels and predicted impacts on low lying Pacific Island communities.As Pacific islanders we need to be more informed about what directly affects us and our livelihoods. The population of the Pacific islands is estimated to be over 8.6 million people, most of which are coastal dwelling and are therefore dependant on the ocean and its resources. So it is vital that we understand our ocean.

The Pacific Islands Applied Geoscience Commission (SOPAC), hosts the South Pacific Sea Level and Climate Monitoring Project alongside other initiatives aimed at improving our scientific knowledge of ocean and island ecosystems for the sustainable management of natural resources.
