20th PIRT Annual Meeting 
21st - 22nd August 2017, Honiara, Solomon Islands

The Pacific Islands Roundtable for Nature Conservation is a coalition of nature conservationand development organisations, governments, inter-governments, donor agencies and community groups created to increase effective conservation action in the Pacific Islands Region. It was established in 1998 at the request of Pacific island countries and territories which was voiced at the 6th Pacific Islands Conference on Nature Conservation and Protected Areas in 1997. The forum enables those organisations working on nature conservation in the Pacific to improve their collaboration and coordination towards effective conservation action. It is the key coordination mechanism for the implementation of the new Framework for Nature Conservation and Protected Areas in the Pacific Island region 2014-2020 which was adopted at the 9th Pacific Islands Conference on Nature Conservation and Protected Areas and was subsequently endorsed at the 25th Annual SPREP Meeting in September 2014.

This year PIRT will convene its 20th annual meeting with a theme “Oceans at a tipping point – From global commitments to regional actions with an ocean lens on climate change”.

The topics for discussions are aligned to the theme and we anticipate a rich discussion focussed on the outcomes and voluntary commitments made by Pacific Island countries at the recent UN Oceans Conference. What are the important links, priorities and an exchange on how PIRT Members already are, or can further assist Pacific Island countries to meet these commitments.
