PACTAM2 advisers work in collaboration with partner organisations across seven Pacific island countries.
Our advisers work in a wide range of sectors such as health, education, governance, finance, environment, agriculture and infrastructure. Each technical assistance input is designed to achieve the desired development outcomes and to meet an identified need for technical assistance where specialist skills are not available locally.
Sustainability is critical to our approach. We focus on contributing to enduring positive outcomes.
