Bula!! From the PEG Secretariat, hosted by Pacifi c Islands Applied Geoscience Commission (SOPAC). We welcome readers to the first issue of the Pacific Energy and Gender Network (PEG) Newsletter. This issue provides a background to the PEG, its recent achievements, ongoing activities, and much more. PEG, since its establishment in August 2003, has carried out various advocacy activities. During the period 2004-2005 PEG undertook a key project to build awareness on energy and gender issues in the region through the development of resources such as a PEG website, posters and flyers, communication materials including a video, series of radio spots, and a Pacific Energy and Gender Annotated Bibliography. The resources developed were circulated in the region and as an ongoing activity the materials have been used in training workshops and meetings to build awareness on energy and gender linkages. PEG has also participated in various regional and international workshops, meetings and side events over the years in an effort to network with other partners, raise awareness of energy and gender issues specific to the Pacific region, and to seek donor support. PEG’s participation at the 15th Session of the Commission of Sustainable Development (CSD 15) and side events was fruitful, more details are included in this newsletter. PEG acknowledges its key donor Technical Centre for Agricultural and Rural Co-operation (CTA), who have contributed towards this newsletter and supported PEG’s activities over the years. Also PEG has collaborated closely with ENERGIA – the International Network on Gender and Sustainable Development and received both financial and ongoing technical support. We hope readers enjoy the first issue of the PEG Newsletter and we welcome feedback and articles for the next issue. Yogita Bhikabhai, PEG Coordinator
