This report is the final deliverable under the project “Awareness Raising of Pacific Island Development Aid Countries“. The report provides states in the Pacific and interested donors with an overview of achievements in building e-government capabilities and of current operational and policy-related issues.

It focuses on six Pacific countries: Fiji, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tonga and Vanuatu. The report concludes with a set of conclusions and recommendations on implementing e-government development projects in the region and overall coordination for programming of ICT-related investments.

This report is expected to provide Pacific island governments, donor agencies and other relevant institutions with:

  • details of some significant achievements in the development of e-government capabilities over the past 15 years
  • country-specific and cross-cutting regional policy challenges and operational constraints
  • pointers to the availability of global good practices and e-government expertise that could be beneficial to the Pacific community
  • an assessment of the potential offered by regional approaches for tackling e-government challenges in situations of limited resources and capabilities.

The report is compiled by the Australian Strategic Policy Institute, ASPI’s International Cyber Policy Centre (ICPC) and the e-Governance Academy.
