The safety of navigation and the protection of the marine environment in the region took a positive step forward recently with the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding between the International Hydrographic Organization (IHO) and Secretariat of the Pacific Community (SPC). Hydrography is the study, surveying, and mapping of the oceans, seas and rivers, especially related to navigation and the environment.

IHO is comprised of 80 member governments represented by their respective national hydrographic offices.  Its objectives include the standardization of nautical charts as well as the adoption of reliable and efficient methods to conduct hydrographic surveys.
