The Pacific Island Forum’s Roadmap for Sustainable Development guides regional responses for the achievement of the 2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals.  The Roadmap builds on the strong leadership demonstrated by the Pacific in shaping the global agenda and reaffirms the need for national ownership backed by regional and international cooperation. The destination is a region of peace, harmony, security, social inclusion, and prosperity so that all Pacific people can lead free, healthy, and productive lives.

This seminar will include contributions to the Pacific sustainability discussion led by ANZ, as a large Australian business in the region, the Pacific Islands Forum, the Fijian Government which has been a strong global advocate for Pacific resilience, and the Australian Government which contributes through the Australian Infrastructure Financing Facility for the Pacific (AIFFP) to climate resilience infrastructure development and offers opportunities for Australian business involvement in assisting Pacific islands countries further their climate change resilience.
