Public Lecture : One Size Fits All?

A public lecture "One Size Fits All? Confronting Pacific Environmental Challenges within Global Environmental Strategies is being organised by the Development Studies Program, Faculty of Arts and Law and the Pacific Centre for Environment and Sustainable Development, Faculty of Islands and Oceans, University of the South Pacific. Details are provided below :
  • Date : Thursday, 28 June 2007;
  • Time : 6pm to 8pm;
  • Venue : Marine Studies Lecture Theatre, USP Lower Campus, Laucala Bay, Suva;
  • Speaker : Dr Pamela Chasek, Executive Editor, Earth Negotiations Bulletin, IISD Reporting Services, Fulbright Senior Scholar, School of Government, Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand.

Environmental and sustainable development problems are so large that none of the Pacific Island States or Territories can response to them alone. As a result, regional cooperation, mutual aid between states, the pooling of energies and ideas is necessary within the region.

The lecture will present some initial research findings about how Pacific Island States and Territories can better address environmental challenges and what role regional organisations, the UN system and key developed countries can play in this regard.
