Pacific Island countries urged to make use of aid effectiveness forum

Pacific island countries have been urged to use the 4th High Level Forum (HLF4) on Aid Effectiveness being held in the Korean city of Busan to make strong representation on the steady yet positive progress made in improving development cooperation towards achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).

The Cook Islands, Nauru, Niue, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tonga, Tuvalu and Vanuatu are all represented in Busan.

Secretary General of the Pacific Islands Forum Secretariat, Tuiloma Neroni Slade has briefed Pacific representatives in Busan. “It’s a time to make very clear that despite our similarities, we remain diverse in the extent of progress made, in our development capacities and in the political will and leadership placed on moving the development cooperation agenda forward,” says Slade.

Discussions at the Forum will include: capacity development and knowledge exchange; rights based approaches; fragility and conflict; south-south and triangular cooperation; and private sector.
