This paper examines the process through which a region was enacted and politically mobilized at the tenth meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD). It draws on concepts from scalar politics and new regional geography to theorize the enactment of an oceanic Pacific Region as a strategy directed toward transcending the practical and imagined smallness of Pacific small island developing states (SIDS) within the CoP10 meeting context and global imaginations. It concludes that their collective influence remains relatively limited compared with others but there are networks of people committed to the biodiversity conservation
