Encouraged by the CRGA Subcommittee, the Secretariat is using a futures methodology for inclusive engagement on the development of the Strategic Plan 2021+. It is building its strategic foresight capability to better understand anticipated drivers of change, to analyse past and future trends, to explore different scenarios, and alternative and preferred futures for the Pacific Community.

We started our journey in December 2019 and have followed a 5 phase approach to co-develop our 10-year strategy. Looking to the 2030 future, we have been building our foresight and futures capability and applying foresight to our strategy development.

There is still time to contribute to help shape the vision of the organisation’s work for the future. SPC will be seeking opportunities for engagement with members and stakeholders of the organisation. We will utilise dialogues, already appearing in members’ calendars, to inform our strategy. SPC is implementing a 12-month transition plan for 2021. The transition plan represents a commitment to pivoting the way the organisation operates and a maturation of objectives since the last strategic plan in 2016 – 2020.

Drafting under the close guidance of members, takes into account the evidence and visioning of the previous phases. Any additional input will be at the discretion of the CRGA subcommittee members.

Interested stakeholders are invited to provide input using one of the options offered in the "Have your Say" section of this page by sending an email, sending a postcard from the future form or connecting live with one of our staff using the chat option at the bottom of the page.
