The Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme (SPREP) has been charged by the governments and administrations of the Pacific region with the protection and sustainable development of the region's environment.
SPREP is based in Apia, Samoa, with over 90 staff.
NZAIA has an MoU with SPREP, to assist with the Environmental Monitoring and Governance strategy, which includes the development of EIA, SEA and IEA capacity in the Pacific.
SPREP's new EIA guidelines were officially launched at the 27th annual SPREP Meeting in September 2016 and are now available online: click here
Several members of NZAIA were involved in the drafting and development of the guidelines under our MoU with SPREP.
