19-05-2010 Annual Report No 2009

Since 2001, ICRC operations in the Pacific have been carried out by the Suva regional delegation. In cooperation with the National Societies, it assists governments in the ratification and implementation of IHL treaties and promotes respect for and compliance with IHL among the region’s armed and security forces. It also promotes IHL and humanitarian issues among academic circles, the media and civil society. The ICRC visits people detained in connection with past unrest in Fiji and Solomon Islands. It also helps build the emergency response capacities of the region’s National Societies, particularly in Papua New Guinea.
