This flyer outlines the status of solid waste management in Samoa and recommends key points for action to address challenges facing the country related to solid waste management.
Land degradation as it affects Samoa became an issue that had most recently surfaced as a consequence of land
cover change resulting to the loss of soil productivity and vegetative cover induced mainly by unsustainable practices and the inappropriate uses of land resources. This report is a thematic assessment that was conducted in 2006 to address the issue and for the UNCCD.
This dataset hosts all published national reports submitted by Samoa to the UNCCD
Since the adoption of Agenda 21 following the United Nations Conference on Environment and development in 1992, this report constitutes the first opportunity for Samoa to assess its situation with regard to sustainable development in the past decade
Avariety of factors can affect the biodiversity of tropicalmammal communities,
but their relative importance and directionality remain uncertain. Previous
global investigations of mammal functional diversity have relied on range
maps instead of observational data to determine community composition. We
test the effects of species pools, habitat heterogeneity, primary productivity
and human disturbance on the functional diversity (dispersion and richness)
of mammal communities using the largest standardized tropical forest camera
With increasing globalization of markets, rising environmental awareness, and attention from international conventions and agreements, the vast majority of countries are looking into managing their forests more sustainably. The main limitation appears to be lack of funding for improving forest management. Traditional sources include the government, targeted investments from the private sector, international donor support, and contributions in kind from rural communities. But these are grossly inadequate, and additional finances are required.
Promote and encourage the use of standard wetland inventory methodologies following the Ramsar Framework for Wetland Inventory (Resolution VIII.6), to undertake, update and disseminate national (or, where appropriate, provincial) scientific inventories of wetlands.

To introduce this collection of studies, a logical first question to ask is why produce a “lessons learned” publication?
An assessment framework based on key habitats in Samoa:
* cloud forest and uplands
* lowlands, coastal strand
* nearshore marine, offshore marine, and rivers and streams
* climate change, air quality, waste disposal, renewable energy, and population pressures.
It also assesses the status of Samoa’s species of high conservation value, especially those that are endemic and critically endangered.

This dataset holds two reports related to O le Pupu Pu'e National Park ;
Report one is a summary of the community consultations held on December 11, 2015 to discuss the draft operational plan for the restoration of the O le Pupu Pu’e (OLPP) National Park. The restoration of the OLPP NP is a key activity in the Management Plan for the park.
Report two summarises a review of existing information on the invasive species in the park and to present the results of a short survey of invasive species conducted in the park from Nov 19 to Dec 1, 2015.
This dataset holds all CIM Plans for each district of Samoa. The CIM Plans are envisaged as blueprints for climate change interventions across all development sectors reflecting the programmatic approach to climate resilience adaptation taken by the Government of Samoa.
The proposed interventions outlined in the CIM Plans are also linked to the Strategy for the Development of Samoa 2016/17 – 2019/20 and the relevant ministry sector plans.
SPREP is leading the charge to make the Pacific Games in July go plastic free in an awareness and outreach initiative aptly called Greening of the Games. This dataset holds a draft report and a raw baseline data collected from a clean-up at Mulinu'u executed on the 11th May 2019 by the the Team Samoa Va'a, to contextualize solutions and interventions to address marine litter and plastic pollution.
