Commonwealth Local Government Forum (CLGF) Pacific

The CLGF Pacific works with national and local government and other stakeholders in the Pacific region to strengthen local democracy and improve service delivery. Working with central governments, city and town councils in eight Pacific island countries (Cook Islands, Kiribati, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tonga, Tuvalu and Vanuatu), CLGF is promoting and encouraging regional exchange and capacity building by strengthening institutions and improving service delivery at the sub-national level.

The CLGF Pacific was set up to support local government management in the unique complex and changing Pacific environment, characterised by rapid urbanisation which brings specific challenges and opportunities.  The CLGF Pacific works with urban local and sub-national governments in the region to help them tackle these challenges and maximise the development opportunities.
