The New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade (MFAT) has supported a range of activities in the Pacific maritime sector as part of its aid and development program. With shipping and artisan/subsistence fishing being such a key part of Pacific societies, for trade, economic, educational, medical, and cultural purposes, it is not surprising that there is growing interest in supporting Pacific Island Countries (PICs) with safe, reliable shipping. MFAT’s activities in the maritime sector are worth over $20 million NZD, with interventions primarily targeted at seven Pacific Island Countries. MFAT’s strategy in the maritime sector has involved several activities which target improving safety and reducing the risk of accidents. Over the years, a suite of activities, delivered by Maritime New Zealand, Land Information New Zealand, the Pacific Community [SPC] and other New Zealand and local providers, have been implemented focused on different aspects of safety.
To date, the balance of investments across these activities has been weighted towards preventative and educational measures. As MFAT faces a new funding cycle at the end of a triennium and a year of delivery greatly disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic, there is an opportunity to re-examine and reflect on the current maritime portfolio vis-à-vis MFAT’s broader goals and aspirations for the sector. In response to this opportunity, we would like to review MFAT’s current maritime portfolio, in order to help set the future direction of the program. The purpose of this review is to provide an independent assessment of MFAT’s portfolio of maritime activities, in order to support future program design and provide an evidence base for making future funding decisions on maritime investments. The review will contribute to strategic decisions on the upcoming triennium’s investment in maritime activities, particularly on key activities such as the Pacific Maritime Safety Program (PMSP), Pacific Regional Navigation Initiative (PRNI), and Pacific Island Domestic Shipping Safety (PIDSS). The objectives to guide this review are outlined in the attachments.
