Strategic Plan cover

Welcome to the Pacific Community (SPC) strategic plan page. We will use this page to update you on the progress we are making towards Strategic Plan 2022–2031, and to tell you about events and products related to the plan.

The Committee of Representatives of Governments and Administrations (CRGA) is SPC’s governing body. It meets every year to review SPC’s performance. In November 2021, the 51st CRGA endorsed our new strategic plan – Strategic Plan 2022–2031 – and adopted it in Noumea at its 12th conference.

An accessible copy of the Strategic Plan is available on this link. This version of the Strategic Plan 2022 – 2032 is compatible with Optical Character Recognition (OCR) devices and smart phone applications for reading material out loud.


We are sharing our strategic plan widely, to promote the attitudes, behaviours, knowledge, skills, and values that our staff, partners and members need, so we can successfully implement it.

Our strategic plan is a ‘living’ document, which means we will continue updating it to keep it relevant and useful for our members, partners and other stakeholders. We use existing meetings and other events to talk with them, and use their insights to inform how we implement the strategy.

You can follow our progress with implementing the strategic plan, by reading our annual results reports and other products we publish related to our results.


We are committed to regularly evaluating our work, so we can continue improving our services for our members. We will review our strategic plan after three, five and eight years , to check our planned work is still relevant and appropriate, and to help us make any necessary changes.

You can find all our evaluation reports in our digital library.



The CRGA Subcommittee for the Strategic Plan supports our members to get involved in setting the direction and priorities of SPC – their organisation – and guides the CRGA on SPC’s strategic direction. The Subcommittee holds us accountable for our plans and actions, by reviewing our annual results report. It tracks the progress we are making with implementing the strategic plan, before reporting back to the CRGA.

While we were developing our strategic plan, we gathered a range of materials that you may find useful. These include updates from our members, outcomes of our consultation meetings and infographics. We’ve listed them in chronological order, starting with the most recent.
