The Pacific is a developing region with many funding opportunities. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade (MFAT) provides funding opportunities for NZ businesses and individuals. Other donor organisations also provide funding for initiatives.

MFAT’s Partnerships Fund supports partnerships led by NZ-based organisations to develop and deliver locally owned responses to development challenges in countries as identified in the NZ Aid Programme Strategic Plan. It has a core focus on sustainable economic development in the Pacific. The Pacific Private Sector Window (PPSW) is a specific window within the Partnerships Fund available to NZ businesses. The Akina Foundation is working with MFAT to find NZ businesses that want to invest in Pacific Island Countries.
