PIANGO recognizes that leadership is crucial to development effectiveness. Throughout the region there have been many initiatives designed to address this.

PIANGO has in the past, taken a lead role in building capacity in CSO together with UNDP and UNITECH founded a successful Graduate Diploma in NGO Management program.

There is a clear role for PIANGO in this work, it is seen as valuable by our members and we have the organizational capacity to govern nd direct the work.

PIANGO will also seek to conduct a review capacity building work across the region, what has and has not worked, the challenges and opportunities posed by the current context and some options for going forward.

In relation to this, PIANGO will work with PIFS at the regional level and Pacific national governments on social accountability in advocacy of good governance while at the same tie develop leadership training and development to target next generation CSO leadership.
