Better co-ordination

Tevita Vuibau

FIJI and the Pacific Islands say they want to see better co-ordination in the delivery of United Nations services in the region.

The UN has 11 offices in Fiji responsible for co-ordinating different areas of UN interests in the Pacific ranging from poverty reduction and achieving the MDGs to disaster resilience and mitigation.

Fiji's permanent representative to the UN ambassador Peter Thomson is leading a UN visit to the region and explained the need for cohesion was communicated to the UN by the PICs.

"Before we left New York, we got all the permanent representatives from the Pacific Islands together to hear about what their concerns were about the UN's delivery of service here in this part of the world," Mr Thomson said.

"And a lot of them were talking about the need for greater co-ordination, especially when you have a small country with a small bureaucracy and you've got so many UN offices."
