10th Pacific Islands Conference: Nature Conservation and Protected Area

Rue des Accords de Matignon, Nouméa, New Caledonia

​The Nature Conservation and Protected Areas conference has become the principle conference of government agencies, NGOs, community-based organisations, donor agencies and individual experts concerned with conservation science and practice in the Pacific islands region. The conference is the key opportunity to set a Pacific based and initiated agenda for Pacific conservation for the next four-seven years.

What is the purpose?

We organize the conference because, as a region, we want to:


  • Influence the post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework
  • Guide and innovate conservation action at a national and regional level in Oceania
  • Secure sustainable funding for nature conservation in Oceania

What are the objectives?


  • Inform about and analyse the State of Conservation in the Pacific islands and define progress towards the achievement of regional and global conservation priorities.
  • Define a Pacific based and initiated agenda and priorities for conservation beyond 2020 (new Framework for Nature Conservation and Protected Areas).
  • Build Pacific nature conservation capacity and stimulate knowledge management and learning related to biodiversity conservation.
  • Endorse the framework at a regional level through a High-level Conference Declaration with regional priorities for Nature Conservation.​
