Pacific Developmental Leadership
PIANGO recognises that leadership is crucial to development effectiveness and that throughout the region there have been many initiatives designed to address this. PIANGO has in the past, taken a lead role in building capacity in CSO and together with UNDP and UNITECH founded a successful Graduate Diploma in NGO Management program. There is a clear role for PIANGO in this work, it is seen as valuable by our members and we have the organisational capacity to govern and direct the work.

There is a sweeping need to strengthen institutions and the next generation of leadership -and this includes Civil Society at large.
