8:53 am on 9 April 2008

Pacific representatives have identified a set of key issues that they would like reflected in the next round of global discussions on aid effectiveness to be held in Accra, Ghana in September.

These issues include the different ways in which aid impacts upon women, men and marginalized groups, the development of capacity and the role of civil society organizations in aid effectiveness.

The issues were identified at a workshop in Nadi attended by regional governments, agencies and the United Nations Development Programme's Pacific Centre with support from the Asian Development Bank.
