Pacific Resilience Stories Through Photography


Over the past two years since reactivation of the communications for the the Framework for Resilient Development in the Pacific (FRDP) & Pacific Resilience Partnership (PRP), the PRP Support Unit had faced challenges in having access to relevant and new photographs that could be used for communications and publications purposes.

At the moment, the PRP do not have a specific photo library or database where the Support Unit or partners could have access to and use. Therefore, for all communications purposes, the Support Unit relied heavily on images from SPC, SPREP and PIFS (Support Unit) and other PRP partners. However, with border closure, there were no collection of new images from the Forum member countries. Images have been repeatedly used and recycled and somehow the messages got lost along the way.

Because photographs tell powerful stories, it is very important to build a photo library for PRP that could be used in their related communication activities through websites, social media, mainstream media and publications.

Therefore, the Pacific Islands Forum Secretariat (PIFS) through PRP Support Unit will conduct a call for expression of interests and identify individual professional photographers from the Forum member countries to captured images and footages that tells resilience stories from the region. These countries include Cook Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, Fiji, French Polynesia, Kiribati, Nauru, New Caledonia, Niue, Palau, Papua New Guinea, Republic of Marshall Islands, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tonga, Tuvalu, and Vanuatu.


To conduct a ‘call for expression’ to record a range of high-quality photographs of events, livelihood and resilience building activities as well as portraying Pacific Islands way of life and their surrounding environment. Photographs can be primarily horizontal shots; dramatic angles; close up, midrange and wide-angle shots. In addition to photos, drone footages will also be collected where possible.

These photographs will capture way of life and resilience building actions going on in the Forum Member countries in relations to climate change and disaster risk management.
