The Secretariat of the Pacific Community’s (SPC) aims to help pacific island people face challenges in an effective way through informed decision making for their future, and the well-being of future generations. Any island member country can request assistance from the SOPAC Division. Benefits accrue to island member countries directly through the provision of basic geological knowledge and indirectly, through improvements in land and ocean use, leading to improved health through water and sanitation provision, wealth generation through the development of mineral resources, hazard and disaster management and sustainable development by taking into account the geo-environmental impacts of development.
