Pacific Islands Strategic Framework 2022 - 2027

Speeches Shim

The goal of the Pacific Islands Strategic Framework (SF) is: Advance a more democratic, prosperous, and resilient Pacific Island region. The primary thrust of this SF is increasing resilience- the ability of the Pacific Islands to sustainably adapt to and recover from various natural and man-made shocks and stresses. To this end, USAID envisions a more resilient region that can better respond and adapt to climate and disaster impacts, pandemics, and economic shocks, with strong political systems that champion democratic values, good governance, human rights, and promote equity and inclusion for all Pacific Islanders.  USAID will partner with key regional organizations, Pacific governments, civil society, and the private sector to strengthen overall resilience and accelerate the development progress of the Pacific Island countries (PICs). To achieve this goal, USAID will work through three Development Objectives (DOs) outlined below:

  • DO 1: Community Resilience Strengthened
  • DO 2: Resilient Economic Growth Advanced
  • DO 3: Democratic Governance Strengthened

This SF encompasses 12 Pacific Island Countries (PICs): Federated States of Micronesia (FSM), Fiji, Kiribati, Nauru, Palau, Papua New Guinea (PNG), Republic of the Marshall Islands (RMI), Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tonga, Tuvalu, and Vanuatu. The PICs occupy a vast area of the Pacific Ocean that is geographically and uniquely situated to help ensure vibrant trade and security for the Americas and Asia which is rooted in long-standing historical ties. In line with the new  (or core tenets of the new) Indo-Pacific Strategy, USAID plans to renew and reinforce these ties by addressing the unique challenges outlined above including climate change, rising sea levels, and the lack of sustainable infrastructure which underscores our broader commitment to ensuring the security, vitality, and prosperity of the Indo-Pacific region.
