In a media release from the PIDF states that the workshop will better its position to meet the expectations of the PIDF Charter and address the ten priorities identified by Pacific Leaders in the context of the Agenda 2030 and its Sustainable Development Goals.

PIDF Secretary General  Mr François Martel said it is a necessary exercise to enhance the knowledge of their staff on what impacts them as an organisation and how they are going to do it in a strategic manner.

MARTEL: “This is a necessary exercise to enhance the knowledge of our staff on what impacts we as an organisation need to generate and exactly how we are going to do it in a strategic manner and this Strategic Planning exercise is also an opportunity for retrospection and introspection.”

Mr Martel also acknowledged the hard work that was undertaken from 2013 to set up PIDF by country members, partners and stakeholders and also commended the staff of PIDF for the quality of work and the efficient use of limited resources to deliver organisational expectations.

MARTEL: “We are positive that at the conclusion of this planning workshop PIDF would be in a position to better dispense our mandate and the end product of our 3 year Strategic Plan which will reinforce our strategic role within the Pacific region and also in international platforms as well.”

The draft strategic plan will be presented and reviewed by the PIDF Senior Officials Committee in July and then tabled at the upcoming PIDF Leaders’ Summit in Honiara, Solomon Island which will be held from 12 to 13 July 2016.
