The Pacific Plan is very different from earlier initiatives of the Pacific Islands Forum.¹ The difference lies principally in the challenge it presents to Australia and New Zealand to engage with Forum island countries (FICs) as equal partners in Pacific development rather than as honorary members on the sidelines. It equally presents a challenge to island countries to acknowledge the problems older strategies for development have created for their own peoples. If both challenges are not addressed they will undermine the Pacific Plan.
