The programme covers six KRAs. Its overall management is coordinated by a Programme Management Unit (PMU) based in Suva, Fiji.
Four main agencies are implementing six programme KRAs through a multisectoral approach:
1) The Pacific Community (SPC), which is the lead agency for the programme and is responsible for its overall management,
2) the Pacific Islands Forum Fisheries Agency (FFA),
3) the Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme (SPREP) and
4) The University of the South Pacific (USP).
Given the scope and breadth of the PEUMP programme, agencies are working with and through partners in some areas of implementation: The International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN), The Locally Managed Marine Area (LMMA) Network, the Pacific Islands Tuna Industry Association (PITIA) and the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF). Other partnerships may develop during the implementation of the programme.
