Call for Submissions for the Pacific Islands Species Forum

Invitation is now open for papers for the Pacific Islands Species Forum, to be staged in Honiara, Solomon Islands, from April 25-27 2012.

Pitpit germplasm at Keravat, PNG

The Pacific Islands Species Forum will be an opportunity for scientists, researchers, policy-makers, and conservation practitioners to come together and share scientific knowledge relating to species research and conservation in the Pacific. The small island states of the Pacific are isolated, with distance proving a major barrier to the spread of knowledge and facilitation of support networks. As such, there has been a lack of consolidated approaches on species issues within the Pacific Island Countries and Territories (PICTs) and species conservation is often low on the agenda.

The Pacific Islands Species Forum will provide support needed by experts working in isolation, whilst injecting enthusiasm for people to continue working on key species conservation issues in remote locations.

Interested attendees are encouraged to submit abstracts that relate to the following Forum themes:

1.  Knowledge and research – what we currently know

2.  Continuing challenges – work to do

3.  Celebrating success – key achievements

4.  The way forward

To submit an abstract, contact helen.pippard@iucn.org.

Due date is March 16 2012.
