FrameworkThe Regional Framework for Action directly supports the development and implementation of policies and plans for the mitigaion and management of natural disasters, which is one of the key initiatives of the Kalibobo Roadmap, that reinforces the objectives of the Pacific Plan.

Vision : Safer more resilient Pacific island nations and communities to disasters, so that Pacific peoples may achieve sustainable livelihoods and lead free and worthwhile lives.

Mission : Building capacity of Pacific island communities by accelerating the implementation of disaster risk reduction and disaster management policies, planning and programmes to address current and emerging challenges through :

a.) development and strengthening of disaster risk reduction and disaster management, including mitigation, preparedness, response and relief/recovery systems;

b.) integration of disaster risk reduction and disaster management into national sustainable development planning and decision-making processes at all levels; and

c.) strengthening partnerships between all stakeholders in disaster risk reduction and disaster management.

In September 2015, the Pacific Island Forum Leaders extended the Regional Framework for Action for one year. The official Forum Leaders Communique  for the 46th Pacific Island Forum Leaders Meeting in Papua New Guinea on the 7th to the 11th of September 2015, can be viewed here

Newsflash

The surge in deep seabed minerals exploration interests in the Pacific Islands region in recent years has attracted much attention within and outside of the region. This could be the beginning of significant investment in the offshore minerals industry as new players have joined in the search for seabed minerals.

Apart from the region’s traditional development partners such as Australia, United Kingdom and Canada, Korea has shown great interest in exploring the potential of these seabed resources for mining.
