The Forum Compact on Strengthening Development Coordination in the Pacific is a development compact agreed by Forum Leaders and endorsed by key development partners at the Pacific Islands Forum Leader's annual meeting in Cairns, August 2009.
The peer review team considered reform initiatives already announced by the Government of RMI and strengths and weaknesses in current planning, budgeting and performance systems. This report provides recommendations to the government of Republic of the Marshall Islands (RMI) and its development partners on a set of practical actions in the short to medium term that could strengthen resources use in RMI.
This report is structured in three parts:
ii) Findings and recommendations on the three areas of Planning, Budgeting and Performance Mangement; Public FInances; and Aid Management,
iii) Next steps.
These were the natural categories into which discussions fitted but consistency with team's of reference, the principles of aid effectiveness to which these issues relate is cross referenced in section headings.
