UN, EU support State's initiative

THE UN and EU are serious about supporting Government's initiative of leaving no one behind.

UN resident co-ordinator Osnat Lubrani made the comment during the launch of a report on leadership training and dialogue for the people of Rotuma.

Launching the report, President Jioji Konrote, said capacity building initiative on leadership for the island's chiefs, women and youths was the first of its kind.

"It was a first opportunity for many of the participants, especially for the women and young people to be part of a learning event with their traditional leaders, having a safe space to dialogue and have a voice in key development issues affecting Rotumans."

Mr Konrote said: "The report we are launching summarises the lessons learned from this dialogue initiative".

He told those at the event at the University of the South Pacific (USP) Oceania Centre last week, the report could be replicated and built upon by development partners, who work in rural and remote settings such as Rotuma.

Mr Lubrani said the UNDP was proud to support the initiative. "I hope lessons learnt from the dialogue initiative and the momentum it created will continue to help the Rotumans and inspire other communities in other islands of Fiji," Ms Lubrani said.
