Five years on from the adoption of ‘A Public Financial Management Roadmap for Forum Island Countries’, a roadmap for Public Financial Management (PFM) reform in Forum Island Countries, this report examines experiences of PFM reform in two Pacific island countries in order to inform future...
Pacific Island countries face unique development challenges. They are far away from major markets, often with small populations spread across many islands and vast distances, and are at the forefront of climate change and its impacts. Because of this, much research has focused on the...
This journal article suggests that voluntary labour migration can promote economic development in migrant sending and receiving countries and can be a positive adaptive response to the effects of climate change.
This report is the Final Evaluation Report of “Fairtrade Support for Business Development in Pacific Island Countries (PICs)” (hereby referred to as ‘the project’).

The increasing frequency and intensity of floods present civil society, policymakers, and development practitioners the challenge of reducing disaster risk, and populations’...
Field data were collected on Fatato Island, Funafuti Atoll, Tuvalu, to understand contemporary wave transformation processes on a previously unstudied atoll. Subsequently, a fully nonlinear Boussinesq model was used to simulate wave processes on Fatato and other reefs with variable morphology to evaluate the impact...
This essay series is intended to explore measures that have been taken, and could be taken, in order to improve responses to the threat or occurrence of natural disasters in the MENA and Indo-Pacific regions.
