The Italian contribution to biodiversity conservation in Palau

Italy has an historical partnership with the PSIDS (Pacific Small Islands Developing States), including Palau. For example, in 2015, permanent missions from Palau and Italy organized, with the support of the Global Partnerships Forum and of the Sustainable Oceans Alliance the forum Healthy oceans and seas: a way forward while Telespazio, a company of the Italian Finmeccanica Group, signed a memorandum of understanding on earth observation with the Republic of Palau.

The Italian Minister of the Environment supports Palau in the “Establishment of the First National wide Marine Sanctuary in Palau: a long-term adaptation response to the impacts of climate change on marine ecosystems” with a financial contribution.
