    1. UNDAF Stakeholders Meeting 8-9 May 2007 Country: Solomon Islands Presenter: Allan Daonga

    2. Introduction The Solomon Islands National Consultation Meeting on the UN Pacific Framework for Action 2008-2012, was held on the 7th 8th Feb 2007 at the King Solomon Hotel, Honiara- Solomon Islands. This Consultation Meeting is a follow up from the UN Multi Country Orientation Workshop held in Samoa in December 2006, which was attended by representatives from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of National Planning and Aid Coordination. The SI National Consultation Meeting in Honiara, Solomon Islands was attended by Senior Government Officials, Civil Society and Church representatives, Provincial Government representatives, Various UN Agencies, and Donor Partners. The country specific results matrix was developed on the basis of the draft out puts for the Solomon Islands that has been developed by SI Government representatives at the Multi Country Orientation workshop in Samoa. The draft outputs were developed based on national priorities and UNDAF outcomes, and are focused on the priority areas of rural development, good governance, the productive sector, and capacity building. Infrastructure was not addressed as it was being examined by the SI Government in its transport policy (National Transport Plan). The draft outputs were taken as the starting point for discussion in small groups during the national consultations. They were arranged on sheets of paper around the room, organized by the four UN priorities, and groups were randomly formed to work on each area. The UN core team and observers joined groups according to their areas of expertise, to play supportive role. Participants were then engaged in a market place to review and comment on the outputs developed by other groups. Groups moved around the room at regular intervals to comment on the indicators developed by other groups , particularly addressing their relevance , repetition, and contribution to UNDAF priorities. After group work, collective review through the market place method, and revision in small groups, the draft outputs were reviewed in plenary. These outputs were then finally drafted in the SI Results Matrix.
