Thirdly, Using their Strengths to develop Rabi or Banaba Island.
Fourthly, Networking. They have to work with other countries for assistance or advice.
I am glad to contribute to the idea initiated by our fellow comrades providing a constructive roadmap to assist the Rabi Island Administration in its leadership.
The only area I need improvement lies within the administrative networking linking the Community and the Council. In my view the Council lacks the voice of the poeple in its dicision. I believe the Council should pay a special attention in this area by establishing a separate body responsible at exploring means to strengthen stronger networking between the community and the Council.
The task is not extensive especially when the platform was already set. At the community level each villages have established Committees responsible for Infrustructure, agriculture, fisheries, health, etc. These committees and schemes have so much information vital to steer development.
I believe that the responsiblity of village Councilors is to recongnize and strengthen these committees so that the administration is able to align and prioritize its develoment plan according to the need of the people.
The other area that need special attention is the funding aspect of development. Surely this forum is well aware of the Counil's financial situation and you may agree with me that not all village developments can be accomodated financially from the Council alone. To address this issue it is important that the Council should develop a short and long term funding plan to sustain development on the island.
Short term funding plan should be aligned to meet local funding requirements while strategic plan for long term funding should be developed to meet the following strategy:
1. Set plan to meet international funding requirements
2. Establish Trust Fund at Community level to suport futuer develoment.
