Already half the Pacific’s population lives in urban and peri-urban areas. An additional 1.8 million people will be added to these urban areas over the next ten years, more than the national population of many Pacific Islands states. Urbanization has been a force that has changed almost everything: ways of thinking and acting, ways of using space, lifestyles, social and economic relations, and consumption and production patterns.click here to read more >

The CLGF Pacific works with national and local government and other stakeholders in the Pacific region to strengthen local democracy and improve service delivery. Working with central governments, city and town councils in eight Pacific island countries (Cook Islands, Kiribati, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tonga, Tuvalu and Vanuatu), CLGF is promoting and encouraging regional exchange and capacity building by strengthening institutions and improving service delivery at the sub-national level.
The CLGF Pacific was set up to support local government management in the unique complex and changing Pacific environment, characterised by rapid urbanisation which brings specific challenges and opportunities. The CLGF Pacific works with urban local and sub-national governments in the region to help them tackle these challenges and maximise the development opportunities.
