Changing attitudes and behavior and working together to deliver to Pacific countries is essential for established and emerging leaders from various regional organizations who attended the Pacific Regional Leadership Initiative this week. That is one of the observations Moses Amos shared with us after attending Initiative.

Moses is the Director, Division of Fisheries, Aquaculture and Marine Ecosystems (FAME) with the Secretariat of the Pacific Community, “My background is in coastal fisheries, working with coastal communities and while my role has changed from national to regional with SPC’s FAME the objective remains the same, impacting lives of people at community life.”

Moses said it was interesting to see how participants had different expectations of what leadership is in relation to the participants’ roles and the organizations they worked for. This however, did not deter discussions because the participants were able to relate to each other and how it impacted service delivery at sub-national, national and regional level.

Moses was one of the 29 participants at the four day Pacific Regional Leadership Initiative that ended yesterday (Thursday March 26).
