New Zealand's cooperation in the Pacific: report of the Forum Peer Review 2015

Economic development Sustainable development Foreign aid New Zealand Pacific Area

This report documents the findings and recommendations from the peer review of New Zealand’s Development Cooperation policies and procedures and the effectiveness of its application in Forum island countries under the aegis of the 2009 Forum Compact for Strengthening Development Coordination in the Pacific. This is the first of its kind for the Pacific – where a development partner has participated in a formal process of peer review undertaken by representatives from partner Forum Island countries and other development partners that benefit from and/or engage in its development cooperation programme.

Pacific Forum Leaders have actively supported global effectiveness efforts by tailoring to the regional context through the 2007 Pacific Islands Forum Principles for Aid Effectiveness and the 2009 Cairns Compact for Strengthening Development Coordination in the Pacific (Forum Compact). The key objective of the Forum Compact is to drive more effective coordination of development resources from both Forum Island Countries and development partners, with the aim of achieving real progress against the Millennium Development Goals.
