A delegation from The University of the South Pacific (USP) met scholars and officials of the College of Asia and the Pacific at ANU on 12 April 2017.

The two universities are collaborating in a number of research areas including climate change, sustainable development and marine governance.

RegNet’s Miranda Forsyth has been collaborating with USP’s School of Law through the Pacific Constitutions Network and exploring the creation of community bylaws/ constitutions throughout the Pacific Islands region.

Vice-Chancellor and President of USP, Professor Rajesh Chandra said:

“There is a need for more capacity building for Pacific people and to understand the challenges faced in order to develop Pacific driven innovative solutions. USP will support such initiatives to enhance abilities of countries within the Pacific architecture.”

The University of the South Pacific is supported by 12 Pacific Island Countries: Cook Islands, Fiji, Kiribati, Marshall Islands, Nauru, Niue, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tokelau, Tonga, Tuvalu and Vanuatu.
