Established in 1986, the Association of Development Financing Institutions in the Pacific (ADFIP) is the umbrella organisation of development finance institutions in the Pacific. ADFIP aims to promote the interests of its member organisations and advance cooperation among them, helping to find solutions to problems they face with a view to promoting growth and economic diversification while ultimately contributing to the development of Pacific Island countries.
ADFIP now represents the whole Pacific region, encompassing membership from the islands nations and Northern Pacific. In recent years, membership has also extended to include housing corporations from various Pacific Island countries.
ADFIP has developed and implemented a number of strategic plans since its inception. The strategic plan for the period 2014-2018 was developed with the recognition that the ADFIP Secretariat needed to be strengthened into a self-sustainable operation in order to effectively provide enhanced services to its members, interact with international donor agencies and be a strong link to development in the Pacific Islands region.
