Pacific-European Union Marine Partnership programme




The Pacific-European Union Marine Partnership (PEUMP) programme is a multi-partner project that aims to improve the economic, social and environmental benefits for 15 Pacific-African Caribbean Pacific states through stronger regional economic integration and the sustainable management of natural resources and the environment. Pacific-ACP states that are part of the PEUMP programme are the Cook Islands, Fiji, Federated States of Micronesia, Kiribati, Nauru, Niue, Palau, Papua New Guinea, Republic of the Marshall Islands, Tuvalu, Tonga, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Timor Leste and Vanuatu. The PEUMP programme will focus on supporting sustainable management and development of fisheries for food security and economic growth, while addressing climate change resilience and conservation of marine biodiversity.

With the support of the European Union (EUR 35M) and the Swedish Government (EUR 10M) through their Swedish International Development Agency, the PEUMP programme will run for 57 months from September 2018. The Pacific Community is the lead implementing agency, in partnership with the Forum Fisheries Agency, the Secretariat of the Regional Environment Programme and, through a separate EU Agreement, the University of the South Pacific. Each agency has a number of implementing partners: the International Union for the Conservation of Nature, the Locally Managed Marine Areas Network, the Pacific Island Tuna Industry Association and the World Wide Fund for Nature.

The programme has six key result areas targeting gaps in fisheries science; fisheries development; coastal resources and livelihoods; illegal, unreported, and unregulated fishing; ecosystem-based management; biodiversity conservation; and capacity building at the national and community levels.
