Commonwealth Local Government Pacific Project
The CLGF Pacific Project 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 Project 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 Project work urban local and sub-national governments in the region to help them tackle these challenges and maximise the development opportunities.
The new CLGF Pacific Local Government Strengthening Program was launched on 3 November 2011 at the Pacific Local Government Annual Forum. The project will run from 2011-2015 and represents the second major phase of CLGF's work in the region. It reflects the outcomes of extensive review and consultations with regional stakeholders, including at the Regional Symposium in Port Vila, October 2010 and builds on the existing work and experience of CLGF work with local government in the region.
