    Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned reportpeer-review


    This report provides an analytical framework to assist the Pacific Leadership Program (PLP) systematically identify and more appropriately support prospective developmental leaders (individuals, groups, organisations and coalitions) to achieve real development change in the Pacific. The report then applies this framework in each of the four countries PLP works (Solomon Islands, Vanuatu, Samoa and Tonga) to conduct a baseline assessment of developmental leadership and to identify prospective developmental areas where PLP could provide program support to assist developmental leaders prosecute development change. The report is divided into three parts. Part 1 considers the nature of developmental leadership, the role of agency and institutions, and factors making for effective developmental leadership in a Pacific context. Part 1 then introduces an analytical framework to locate developmental leaders in the context of the political systems in which they must work to pursue development change. Part 2 of this report applies this framework to each of the countries PLP works in, in the form of country scans that establish a developmental leadership baseline, considers the nature of the political system within which leaders must operate, and identifies development fault lines (fruitful areas where developmental leaders may be able to support significant development change). Part 3 of the report provides some general recommendations on future directions for PLP support.
