Solomon Islands Parliament Strengthening Project Phase 3
This project aims to strengthen the National Parliament of Solomon Islands in carrying out its core functions, based upon the parliament’s first and comprehensive “5 Year Strategic Plan 2012-2016” and with quality support by the National Parliament Office (NPO) and its staff. The Strategic Plan will modernize parliament by introducing a Parliamentary Calendar, reflecting a Legislative Agenda. Parliament’s core functions, to legislate and to oversee, will be strengthened through increased Committee support. Parliament’s outreach and parliamentarians’ representative role will be enhanced during the “Week of Parliament”. The project envisages parliament as the context for development of a gender policy.

- Modernizing Parliament and Empowering Staff – Under this output, the goal is that Parliamentary Institutions are modernized as well as Parliamentary Staff Services strengthened.
