Sustainable Development

“Our Objective is sustainable development that combines economic, social, and cultural development in ways that improve livelihoods and well-being and use the environment sustainably.” – Framework for Pacific Regionalism

The Framework for Pacific Regionalism guides the region in its aspiration for Sustainable Development.

The Region is also guided by the Sustainable Development Goals which all Forum members committed to in 2015.

Leaders agreed that the globally developed set of SDGs indicators needed to reflect the Pacific context.
