Achievement at a glance
A new logo and webpage for Pacific Man and Biosphere Network were launched in late 2014. Since then, few activities have been implemented. However, a new focal point should see renewal of activities.
Challenges faced in implementation
The focal point left, leaving a gap in implementation. New focal point now in place. Funding is also a challenge.
Activities will be renewed with preliminary plans for another network meeting in 2017 and Pacific participation in several upcoming global meetings.
1. Pacific Biosphere Network strengthened (e.g. increase PacMAB focal points , partners, web portal developed and branding)
2. Improved environmental monitoring, research , training and capacity building
3. Nomination of at least two additional Biosphere Reserves in the Polynesia and Melanesia region of the Pacific
