What we can learn from the past about managing the future in the Pacific

Many challenges face the people of the Pacific Islands in the 21st century. Solutions are needed that are both effective and acknowledge the cultural context in which they will be applied.

The conference on œFuture Challenges, Ancient Solutions  will examine several areas in which there are challenges confronting Pacific people including issues of resource management, food security, sustainable development, cultural transformation, leadership and governance, and see whether solutions were developed in the past in response to comparable challenges. The aim of this conference is to identify those ancient solutions and evaluate their efficacy. The overarching goal is to inform solutions for contemporary challenges, particularly by enhancing their cultural and environmental sustainability to the Pacific Islands context.
