Pacific governments and government agencies should use the Framework as a source of broad strategic guidance for the development of national policies, programmes and priorities, including their National Biodiversity Strategies and Action Plans (NBSAPs); in fundraising and in reporting to funders and global agencies; and to inform their interactions with, and expectations of, their conservation partners.
Funders should integrate the Framework’s Strategic Objectives and Principles for Conservation Implementation into their funding criteria and prioritisation processes for projects in the Pacific.
Non-governmental organisations (NGOs), and other international and regional organisations should use the Framework to help shape their partnerships with Pacific governments and communities; for priority-setting, and project scoping and development; for reference when drafting their own strategic plans; in fundraising and in reporting to funders and global agencies; and to guide their collaboration with other regional organisations.
Communities and civil society can use the Framework to hold governments, funders, NGOs, and other international and regional organisations to account about their partnership responsibilities and commitments to conservation action.
Private sector organisations may draw on the Framework to help guide their adoption of sustainable business practices, to clarify their environmental responsibilities in the Pacific, and to inform any conservation partnerships they may undertake with Pacific governments or communities.
