    This CD-ROM is a collaborative effort of the UNESCO-IHE-UNEP/GPA training partnership, in short 'TSC-GPA', jointly with the Secretariat of the Pacific Environment Programme SPREP, the Institute for Applied Science IAS of the University of the South Pacific USP and the South Pacific Applied Geoscience Commission SOPAC. TSC-GPA is a course development unit of the UN/DOALOS Train-Sea-Coast programme, a UNDP-GEF funded capacity building initiative with global mandate. TSC-GPA offers management training for decision-makers and practitioners at the municipal level to improve capacity to reduce the discharge of untreated wastewater and increase the number of people with acces to sanitation.A regional training needs analysis conducted by SOPAC revealed a need for an adaptaion of the TSC material to the specific needs of the region with its distinct physical geography and population distribution.To cater for the need, and with the aim to reach more experts in the many islands, this CD-ROM has been compiled to supplement existing training materials. It contians:1 a compendium of technologies appropriate for Pacific Islands2 a tutorial in Project Cycle Management to identify feasible solutions3 three software tools to support decision-making, and4 a document library with 100 publications on management and technologyWe gratefully acknowledge the financial support of the Office of Oceans Affairs in the United States Department of State to the funding of this CD-ROM and ,jointly with the Government of the Netherlands, to the training of experts in the Pacific region facilitated by UNEP, UNESCO, SPREP, USP and SOPAC.
