A sharper focus on those PICs of particular interest to Australia and NZ could help increase the size of PFTAC funding.
PFTAC support in developing FEM gap analyses and long-term action plans could attract additional donor contributions to either PFTAC or PICs to execute the action plans.
There is considerable scope to leverage and build capacity by having a tier of locally recruited technical experts, and more short-term consultants.
Greater use by PFTAC of E-learning techniques could cut cost and improve accessibility of regional trainingactivities.
PFTAC’s reputation as an “honest broker” could assist in broader FEM reforms in PICs.
Expanding PFTAC’s island coverage might attract US and French funding.
