1. Why have you joined the Global Island Partnership?

SPREP has increased it's participation with GLISPA from Friend to Member status to increase partnerships and innovative ideas.

2. What is the main goal you want to advance through the Global Island Partnership?

SPREP is leading the organising of The 10th Pacific Islands Nature Conference, to be hosted by New Caledonia from 20 April 2020. This event provides an exciting and powerful opportunity for the Pacific, and SIDS, stakeholders to gather and generate messages and outputs to steer conservation beyond 2020. These outputs and messages will then be carried and inputted into the suite of events that follow in what will be a big busy year with the conclusion of the global biodiversity strategy and the associated Aichi Targets.

SPREP's membership representative is Amanda Wheatley, Biodiversity Adviser. https://www.sprep.org/
