In Partnership with the European Union, the Pacific Islands Forum is committed to building stronger partnerships and relationships with regional and national Non-State Actors (NSAs). Two inception workshops are taking place in Fiji in February, and these are comprised of two distinct but related programs run back-to-back :
- Policy Development Skills (17th - 20th February) – research, policy analysis, coalition building, policy influencing, developing advocacy strategies, and exploring opportunities for engagement, and
- Monitoring and tracking implementation of policy initiatives towards Ending Violence Against Women and Girls in Forum Island Countries (25th - 27th February) - Training for CSOs on EVAWG Policy Monitoring Toolkit to empower CSOs to participate in policy formulation, implementation and strengthen CSO and government partnerships to progress implementation of agreed regional and national commitments on ending violence against women and girls.
You may apply to participate in either or both programs. If you or your partners are interested in participating, please urgently contact Aaron Davy Here are the 2020 NSA Regional Capacity Building concept note and application form.
