									                                              BIENNIAL WORK PLAN 2008 to 2009
                                                            For the UNESCO Pacific Program

This Biennial Work Plan captures at a detailed level, the activities proposed for the UNESCO Office for the Pacific States over the two year period
2008-2009 and aligns with UNESCO’s global 34/C5. The Work Plan translates the goals set in the six-year Strategic Plan into action. As there are
always a variety of factors that impact on program delivery, there will be changes as the biennium proceeds and the Work Plan will be used as a
living document to guide UNESCO’s activities.
Activities that will be implemented are described with specific information on target countries, partnerships, budget requirements and source of
funding, expected results and how these can be measured. Monitoring and reporting will occur every six months in line with the major SISTER
reporting periods. These activities all align with the global 34/C5 workplan and will also be reported through global sectoral monitoring.
Programs have been developed in three distinct sections:
       the first addressing our partnership objective to strengthen our National Commission partners and undertake planning in a more consultative
       the second outlines plans for three intersectoral programs;
       and the third section examines the activities within each of the five UNESCO major programs.

In addition, an appendix outlining specific achievements for the 2008-2009 biennium of UNESCO’s priority areas1 gender equality and youth is

  Priority Africa is not included as no African countries are in the cluster; SIDS priority is relevant to all activities in the 15 PICTs; LDC targets have been mentioned
for activities targeting Kiribati, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tuvalu and Vanuatu, in addition to Nauru and PNG, which are considered vulnerable.
A central objective relevant across all UNESCO’s Pacific activities is improving the way that we work with and support our key partners, especially
the UNESCO National Commissions. Active involvement of partners in planning, delivery and monitoring is important in both ensuring that
UNESCO’s programs deliver against regional and national need and in building capacity in the Pacific countries.

 Partnership Objective
 Improve the operations and level of involvement of Pacific National Commissions for UNESCO as core participants in delivering
 coordinated UNESCO programs at the national and sub-regional levels
 Key results:
 • Pacific National Commissions actively involved in development and implementation of sub-regional and inter-regional programs
 • Pacific National Commissions have active sub-commissions covering all aspects of UNESCO’s mandate

The intersectoral programs described below are areas where potential synergies have been identified within the existing program of activities for the
UNESCO Office for the Pacific States. They are resourced and reported through the individual sectors and form an integral part of the five major
program and in most cases are funded from the major programs through Regular Program or Extra Budgetary funds. The intention is to increasingly
move towards single project activities funded from and implemented by more than one sector thereby improving the effectiveness of the outcomes
through value-adding. Contributions in brackets indicate that these resources are sourced from another component of the program of activities.

     Widely promote Pacific approaches to knowledge and Pacific networks for information sharing
     Develop case studies in application of pacific ethical contexts
     Further develop training for teachers in use of Pacific pedagogical methodologies within pre-service and in-service training programs
In line with Major Programmes I to V at the global level, and taking into account the priorities of Pacific member countries, the Pacific program
identifies a series of activities for 2008-2009. There is particular emphasis on UNESCO’s global priorities (gender equality, youth, SIDS and LDCs),
implementation of the Pacific United Nations Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF) and the Papua New Guinea Country Program, as well as
the building of strong partnerships with governments, regional and national organisations.

Pacific Program Objective VI
Leverage scientific knowledge for sustainable management of natural resources with particular reference to appropriate solutions for small
island countries and communities
SC MLA1: Fostering policies, technical capacity-building, research, networking, education and international cooperation in the fields of
water, ecological and earth sciences for enhancing societal responses

Key results:
• Knowledge base relating to the impacts of global change (including climate change) on river basins and aquifer systems improved – particularly in
  arid and semi-arid regions – via development of adaptation strategies and sharing of strategies with national authorities and other decision-makers.
• Freshwater education program developed within the framework of the Decade of Education for Sustainable Development
• Sustainable development promoted via establishment of interdisciplinary learning laboratories using sites of the World Network of Biosphere
Reserves for research on biodiversity and sustainability
• Ecological, biodiversity and biological resources management knowledge improved, to attain the MDGs and other internationally agreed development

 Pacific Program Objective VII

 Develop and promote locally driven natural disaster preparedness, mitigation and recovery plans
 SC MLA3: Promoting science, knowledge and education for disaster preparedness and mitigation, and enhancing national and regional
 coping capacities, including through support for the development of risk reduction networks and monitoring and assessment measures,
 such as tsunami early warning systems

Key result:
• Risks from hydrological extremes (floods, droughts, etc.), earthquakes, landslides, volcanoes as well as risks from man-made disasters mitigated
through integrated approaches focusing on policy advice, strengthened networks and capacities for monitoring and assessment, knowledge
