PIRT Annual Meetings

The Roundtable has convened a series of 18 Annual Meetings which bring together members, partners, community groups, government officials, experts, individuals and anyone with an interest in conservation to discuss priority issues, share ideas and experiences, forge partnerships, find practical solutions and strategic opportunities that would contribute to the implementation of the Action Strategy which is now being replaced by the Framework for Nature Conservation and Protected Areas in the Pacific Island region 2014-2020.
