Tracking Development and Governance in the Pacific
The report is the second in a series of annual reports that track development and governance in the Pacific and analyse related key policy issues.
The Pacific region is seriously off track to achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) by 2015. Despite large investments in service delivery, public spending by Pacific governments is generally not leading to better development outcomes.
Development partners bring significant resources for investment in growth and services in the region. While there have been positive changes in the way development partners and governments work together, the report shows resources are not sufficiently coordinated.
There is a compelling case for change–for a combined effort by Pacific island countries and development partners to improve governance and development coordination. Together, Pacific island countries and their development partners can turn ambition into reality and make faster progress towards the MDGs.
The report is the second in a series of annual reports that track development and governance in the Pacific and analyse related key policy issues. It monitors progress towards the MDGs in the region and assesses the performance of countries and development partners in supporting their achievement.
