IFAN funding provides 10 Aids to Navigation in Vanuatu

Thanks to funding provided by IFAN, the Pacific Community (SPC) has handed over 10 Aids to Navigation (AtoN) as part of the Pacific Safety of Navigation Project in the port of Luganville, in Vanuatu, one of the country’s major shipping hubs.

The AtoN include lit buoys and beacons, and lit special buoys that mark the confines of a Marine Protected Area. The Vanuatu Government has thanked the SPC for its continued support, saying the new aids would replace out of date equipment, helping to strengthen maritime safety and marine protection in the area.

 The Pacific Safety of Navigation Project aims to assist 13 Pacific Island countries to establish a sustainable funding model for the provision of AtoN.
