What is TECCBUF?
The implementation of the Pacific Regional Indicative Programme is being overseen by the Pacific Islands Forum Secretariat (PIFS), which is the Duly Mandated Regional Organisation (DMRO) for the EDF resources in the region. With the 11th EDF in place it was imperative that the Technical Cooperation and Capacity Building Facility (TECCBUF) funded by the European Union from the 11th European Union Development Fund (EDF) and implemented by the PIFS, be set up to continue this oversight. The programme falls under the Pacific Regional Indicative Programme (RIP) 2014-2020 Priority 3.3 Strengthening of Regional Organisations (SRO) and Priority 4 Technical Cooperation Facility (TCF).
