IUCN visits Cook Islands
One of the immediate benefits of being a member of IUCN, is that TIS can actively and confidently assist the establishment of the Marine Park of the Cook islands due to its ability to access both information and expertise through our membership status with this internationally recognized and important conservation organization. We were visited recently by Milika Sobey, the IUCN Oceania Water & Wetlands Coordinator. Milika was here to provide technical advice at a regional water conference. She also provided training to TIS on the use of a climate change vulnerability assessment tool called CRISTAL.
