Statement on the Strategic Review of the UNDP Pacific Multi Country Office in Fiji, June 2023

June 8, 2023

Following the adoption of the Pacific Multi-country Programme Document (2023 – 2027), UNDP is introducing changes to its Multi-country Office to align to the new vision and programme for the Pacific, that respond to the evolving needs of people and countries.   Governments and partners ask that UNDP regularly assess how it adapts to evolving conditions and remains fit-for-purpose. The strategic review of the Multi-Country Office structure, processes, skills, and capabilities will lead to strengthening the UNDP offer and footprint in the Pacific across three locations: Fiji, the Federated States of Micronesia, and Solomon Islands. The process of strategic realignment is being conducted through a transparent, competitive, and rigorous process, based on standard UNDP human resource policies and procedures. Staff have been consulted throughout.
