OUR FOCUS

Effective governance

All voices must be heard

We convene people, build partnerships and share ways to promote participation, accountability and effectiveness at all levels. We partner with and support the Pacific Island countries in achieving long term economic and social sustainable growth for its people by strengthening its governance mechanisms to enable a more equitable distribution of public resources to grassroots communities and the marginalized.

Inclusion and social cohesion

We work towards improving the capacities of parliaments, sub-national government ministries and civil society organizations to ensure improved service delivery, inclusive decision making and promote social cohesion at community level.
