Strengthening the leadership capabilities and capacities of Pacific Islands’ national and regional fisheries officials to improve the performance of national fisheries agencies and enable increased economic and food security benefits from well-managed and sustainable fisheries and aquaculture in the Pacific.

The Pacific Fisheries Leadership Programme (PFLP) is funded by the New Zealand Government and implemented by a consortium led by the Pacific Community (SPC) with the Forum Fisheries Agency (FFA), University of Queensland (UQ), and the Centre for Adaptive Leadership (CLA). The Pacific Fisheries Leadership Programme is an innovative and applied learning programme offering advanced leadership development and accreditation opportunities to mid-career and senior managers to address the issues facing Pacific Fisheries. Drawing on the expertise and experience of consortium members, PFLP offers an integrated, academically rigorous, and experiential learning approach to strengthen participants’ effectiveness in their roles.
