C-SPOD wraps up.

After 14 years spent promoting the sustainable development of living marine resources in the South Pacific, the Canada-South Pacific Ocean Development Program is scheduled to conclude in December 2004. Funded by the Canadian International Development Agency, which recently cancelled its aid programme in the South Pacific, C-SPOD has implemented $28 million worth of natural resource management projects in the region and was the main source of aid from Canada to the region over the past decade. Working in partnership with the Pacific Islands Forum Secretariat, the South Pacific Regional Environmental Program, the Forum Fisheries Agency, and the University of the South Pacific, C-SPOD has spearheaded marine conservation projects, participated in the development of fisheries legislation, and tackled gender issues in the fisheries industry. C-SPOD has also bolstered the USP Marine Studies Program by providing scholarships for post-graduate students and supporting research projects throughout the Pacific Islands. C-SPOD is currently seeking ways for other donor nations and partners to carry on the work it began.
