IntroductionCleaner Pacific 2025 is a comprehensive long-term strategy for integrated and sustainable waste managementand pollution prevention and control in the Pacific islands region over the next decade (2016–2025). CleanerPacific 2025 provides a strategic management framework to address waste, chemicals and pollutants (WCP)that will reduce the associated threats to sustainable development of the region (Table 1).This four-year implementation plan (2016–2019) was developed in consultation with Pacific island countriesand territories and allocates responsibilities for individual activities to both the Secretariat and Pacific islandcountries and territories. At the country and territory level, several national entities have been designated aslead agencies, including government departments responsible for waste management, chemicals, and pollutionprevention; national departments of health; national departments responsible for bio-security; and nationalmaritime authorities. Successful implementation of Cleaner Pacific 2025 at the national level will thereforerequire the establishment of strong national coordination mechanisms. The implementation plan requires Pacificisland countries and territories to establish national multi-stakeholder WCP steering committees, which shouldbe done as a matter of urgency to ensure ongoing coordination and monitoring support.ScopeThe scope of the present document mirrors that of Cleaner Pacific 2025, and includes municipal solid waste,asbestos, electrical and electronic waste (e-waste), healthcare waste, chemicals (such as persistent organicpollutants, ozone depleting substances [ODS] and mercury), used oil and lubricants, marine debris, ship-sourcedpollution, disaster waste and liquid waste.Implementation ApproachThe overall approach to implementing Cleaner Pacific 2025 is based on six key steps: regional data collection;development of policies and regulations; promotion of public private partnerships; implementation of bestpractice; improvement of human capacity; and promotion of best practices through regional exchange andcommunity education.Regional data collection: The status of priority waste and pollutant issues will be assessed and prioritised atthe national level. The issues will also be prioritised at the regional level. This will enable targeted interventionsto improve the management of waste and pollutants in an integrated and coordinated process. Governmentsand other parties will be supported by the provision of high quality scientific and management advice for national(and regional) waste and pollution management.Development of policies and regulations: National integrated waste and pollution management policies andregulations are required to support long-term, financially sustainable waste and pollution management solutions.National governments will be assisted to identify model institutional arrangements to implement such solutions.Promotion of public–private partnerships: Promotion of public–private partnerships will contribute to thedevelopment and use of improved and sustainable economic models for management of waste and pollutionin the Pacific. This should include development of both the private and public sectors through professional andtechnical exchanges within and outside the region.Implementation of best practice: Cost-effective and sustainable solutions to waste and pollutant managementissues will be implemented at priority locations determined through regional surveys. Best-practices options willbe promoted through regional guidelines developed for Pacific island and atoll conditions.Improvement of human capacity: Training in waste, chemical and pollutant best-management practices willbe integrated as a core requirement for all relevant country personnel at project sites using, where possible,the ‘train the trainer’ model. This will facilitate practical, relevant and ongoing training for waste-managementworkers and waste-management professionals over the longer term.Promotion of best practices through regional exchange and community education: Twinning within andbetween Pacific ACPs and OCTs will be expanded. Information exchange will also help to promote public–private partnerships to ensure sustainable financing for waste-management-related activities. This will includemaintenance of a network of Pacific-waste recyclers to promote exchange of best practices and dissemination ofregional lessons learned.Pacific Regional Waste and Pollution Management Strategy Implementation Plan (2016–2019)5

Potential PartnersBattling waste, chemicals and pollution in the Pacific Islands requires partnership with, and support from,strategic partners who are involved in complementary activities. The following list identifies potentialcollaborators (donors/development partners; international, regional and national organisations; and nongovernmental organisations) who may be approached as partners to potentially provide technical and financialsupport for implementation of Cleaner Pacific 2025 activities.It must be noted that this list is not exhaustive: there may be other potential collaborators that have not beenidentified, particularly at the national level. When possible, an open and inclusive approach to implementingactivities should be adopted to encourage other potential collaborators to step forward. This may includemaintaining up-to-date information on WCP programme activities on national and regional websites; issuance ofmedia releases; and calling for partnership expressions of interest.Donors and Development PartnersRegional (Pacific)Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade(DFAT)Central Pacific Shipping Commission (CPSC)European Union (EU)Oceania Customs Organisation (OCO)Deutsche Gesellschaft für InternationaleZusammenarbeit GmbH (German Corporation forInternational Cooperation, or GIZ)Forum Fisheries Agency (FFA)Pacific Islands Maritime Association (PACMA)Pacific Islands Development Forum (PIDF)International Maritime Organisation (IMO)Pacific Islands Forum Secretariat (PIFS)Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA)Pacific Islands Law Officers’ Network (PILON)Pacific Region Infrastructure Facility (PRIF)Pacific International Maritime Law Association (PIMLA)New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade(MFAT)Pacific Invasive Partnership (PIP)Inter-Governmental OrganisationsInternationalPacific Islands Private Sector Organisation (PIPSO)Pacific Islands Regional Recycling Initiative Council(PIRRIC)Pacific Maritime Transport Alliance (PMTA)Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO)Pacific Organic and Ethical Trade Community(POETCOM)International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA)Pacific Power Authority (PPA)International Criminal Police Organization (INTERPOL)Pacific Water and Wastes Association (PWWA)International Labour Organization (ILO)Secretariat of the Pacific Community (SPC)International Whaling Commission (IWC)South Pacific Tourism Organisation (SPTO)United Nations Centre for Regional Development(UNCRD)Western and Central Pacific Tuna Commission(WCPTC)United Nations Development Programme (UNDP)United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP)Government Departments and AgenciesUnited Nations Environment Programme GlobalProgramme of Action (UNEP GPA)Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA)United Nations Environment Programme InternationalEnvironmental Technology Centre (UNEP IETC)United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction(UNISDR)World Health Organization (WHO)French NavyNational Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration(NOAA)New Zealand MaritimeUnited States Coast GuardPacific Regional Waste and Pollution Management Strategy Implementation Plan (2016–2019)7
