Development Coordination Division
The Division is directed by the Cook Islands Development Partner Policy and reports to the National Sustainable Development Commission (NSDC). The policy states that the achievement of the Cook Islands development outcomes will be supported by the effective and efficient use of Official Development Assistance, aligned to the National Sustainable Development Agenda (NSDA).
The Division fosters relationships with a broad range of development partners to broker coordinated arrangements. These activities are increasingly delivered through diverse partnerships at a variety of levels including local government, civil society, private sector and national government agencies.
The Division seeks to provide high quality development advice to partners including Ministers, government agencies, committees, community groups, private interest groups and donors.
The Development Coordination Division (DCD) is the operational focal point for international development partners including bilateral, multilateral and regional organisations seeking to implement Development Assistance programs in the Cook Islands.
Development Coordination Division is also responsible for the administration of MFEM’s accreditation to the operating entities of financial mechanisms established under Article 11 of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). As an Accredited Entity to the Adaptation Fund (AF) and the Green Climate Fund (GCF) DCD is responsible for oversight management and implementation of Climate Finance programmes/projects provided to the Cook Islands.
