Reporting year: 2016
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.
Next steps
Activities will be renewed with preliminary plans for another network meeting in 2017 and Pacific participation in several upcoming global meetings.
