2017 Greg Urwin Awardees- Ms Etivina Lovo, Telei’ai Dr Lalotoa Mulitalo and Mr Vincent Lal.

The Greg Urwin Awards (GUAs) were a joint initiative of the Australian Government-funded Pacific Leadership Program (PLP) and the Pacific Islands Forum Secretariat (PIFS). The Awards were established in 2008 to honour the memory and legacy of the former Secretary General of PIFS, the late Mr. Greg Urwin.

The GUAs valued at AUD$25,000 each were given to outstanding Pacific Island professionals, researchers and emerging leaders to undertake a short placements with a regional organisation or institution ( including in Australia and New Zealand) that had the potential to contribute to the positive development in the Pacific.
