The Pacific Islands Development Forum was established in 2013 (its Charter adopted in 2015) with the intention of promoting the Green/Blue Economy with particular focus on leadership, innovation and partnership. A regional organisation, PIDF enjoys the membership of a number of Pacific Island countries, which currently includes Fiji, Federated States of Micronesia, Kiribati, Marshall Islands, Nauru, Palau, Solomon Islands, Timor-Leste, Tokelau, Tonga, Tuvalu, and Vanuatu. It also enjoys the membership of two regional umbrella organisations - the Pacific Islands Association of Non-Government Organisations (PIANGO) representing Civil Society and the Pacific Islands Private Sector Organisation (PIPSO) representing the Private Sector.
Structured in such a way as to be inclusive of government, civil society and the private sector, PIDF ensures a whole-of-Society and multi-stakeholder approach to development. PIDF has established National Sustainable Development Boards in each of its member countries, a multi-stakeholder committee that will be involved in the planning and implementation of PIDF activities at the national level.
