A number of threats face the Pacific, including increasing frequency and incidence of natural disasters through climate change, illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing and by-catch, agricultural expansion, poorly regulated and unsustainable mining, poor waste management and unsustainable coastal development.
Implementing and embedding safeguards
The implementation of the Environmental and Social Safeguards Framework commenced in 2022 with a screening of the landscape and the WWF activities within it. The safeguards on Indigenous Peoples, Natural Habitats, Community Health, Safety and Security and Restriction of Access have been determined as applicable to WWF's activities in this landscape, together with the safeguards on Stakeholder Engagement and Grievance Mechanisms which are applied in all cases. The presence and significance of cultural resources will be established through a participatory mapping process with communities and if identified, the Safeguard on Cultural Resources will also be applied. This is specified in the environmental and social mitigation framework (ESMF) that has been developed and is undergoing final review. It will then be implemented and where appropriate, referenced in agreements.
