Title: Developing entrepreneurship for small enterprises : the Tuvalu experience

Author: Halley, John
Subject:  Small business|Tuvalu
 Entrepreneurship|Tuvalu
Volume: Vol.08, 1982
Collation: p. 20-38

Abstract: In the last decade many of the government of the island nations in the South Pacific have advocated policies that encourage the development of small scale industrial or commercial enterprises in the private sector. Such policies are outlined in the national development plans, in the policy statements of ministers and politicians, and in the body of advice given by external consultants. These policies reflect a commitment by governments to play an active role in encouraging or regulating the different sectors of their economies. Obviously, if this role is to be successful, governments need to do more than identify and encourage potential enterprises. An integrated package of supportive measures have to be created which not only identify sources of investment funds, prepare feasibility studies and make land available, but also offer fiscal incentives, assist in market development, and promote the entrepreneurial and managerial skills of indigenous businessmen.

Title: The disciplinary terrain of Pacific history : origins, issues and views

Author: Raman, Anurag
Subject:  Historiography
 Island-oriented history
Volume: Vol.35 no.3, 2015
Collation: p. 40-55

Abstract: In the 1950s, J. W. Davidson took up the Chair of Pacific History at the Australian National University and delivered his inaugural lecture in which he suggested that history writing in the Pacific could no longer be seen from metropolitan capitals and that the focus should shift to the islands. Despite Davidson’s claim to have decolonised Pacific history, critics argued that he did not offer any new direction or vision. It is the contention of this paper that it is not just Davidson’s island-oriented History, but history writing in the Pacific in general that has suffered from progressive antiquation. There has been little or no theorizing in terms of the direction Pacific History should move towards. The consequence of all this is that Pacific historiography has become a methodologically and stylistically conservative discipline. New Pacific history needs to learn from writers in other disciplines, in particular literary studies that have been rejuvenated through the infusion of theory, philosophy and the styles and methodologies offered by other disciplines. This would be a primary step in decolonising the discipline that has remained for too long in the quagmire of conformity.

Title: Do high renewable energy targets hinder donor-funded rural electrification in Pacific island countries?

Author: Ikarii, Ryohei
Subject:  Renewal Energy
 Rural electrification
Volume: Vol. 39, no. 1, 2019
Collation: p. 30-51

Abstract: High renewable energy targets and rural electrification are not necessarily complementary in Pacific island countries (PICs). While PICs need to tackle both high renewable energy targets for climate change and rural electrification for further development, investment in renewable energy in urban areas is a more cost-effective means of achieving renewable energy targets than rural electrification with renewables. In the energy sector in PICs, foreign aid is the single most important source of investment. Thus, this research will investigate donor-funding for energy projects, assess the extent to which the funding is focused on rural electrification, and examine whether the situation has changed over time in this region. A large share of the information about foreign aid for energy projects between 2013 and 2015 are extracted from a database of a think tank. All the energy projects are sorted into four categories: urban power supply, rural electrification, others, and unspecified projects. The results show that PICs are not only improving urban power supply but also enhancing rural electrification currently, and foreign aid for rural electrification has increased over time. This research also suggests policy recommendations for the donor and recipient governments, including data collection and analysis on electricity demand and energy consumption.
