Description

The Pacific Islands Development Forum (PIDF) is a Pacific Island multilateral agency set-up as an action oriented platform brining together leaders from the public, private sector, and civil society to address regional development challenges, and whose mission is to enable green-blue Pacific economies through inclusive strategies, multi-stakeholder governance and genuine partnership, and to serve as a South-South cooperation platform for the Pacific region.
The PIDF also serves as the Pacific Islands’ South-South cooperation platform with the United Nations and is a member of the Inter-agency Collaborative Group on the Global Partnership on SIDS. It is a space for catalysing, mobilising and mainstreaming action in support of sustainable development through Green/Blue economies in Pacific Island Countries and territories. A regional organisation, PIDF enjoys the membership of a number of Pacific Island countries, which currently includes Fiji, Micronesia, Kiribati, Tuvalu, Marshall Islands, Nauru, Palau, Solomon Islands, Timor-Leste, Tokelau, Tonga and Vanuatu. It also enjoys the membership of two umbrella organisations, the Pacific Islands Association of Non-Government Organisations (PIANGO) representing Civil Society, and the Pacific Islands Private Sector Organisation (PIPSO) representing the Private Sector. Structured in such a way as to be inclusive of government, civil society and the private sector, PIDF ensures a whole-of-Society and multi-stakeholder approach to development. PIDF works at the policy level to empower Pacific people and protect their environment in accord with sustainable development principles.
