Skilled Australians sent by AVI have worked in all provinces and across all sectors in Solomon Islands, providing technical assistance, developing capacity and mentoring governments and a diverse range of nongovernment and church-based organisations.
Following the June 2000 coup, AVI evacuated all AVI volunteers from Solomon Islands. AVI was the first international organisation with a volunteer program to resume, returning three Australian volunteers in January 2001, and three months after the signing of the Townsville Peace Accord.
Since its commencement in 2003, Pacific Technical Assistance Facility (PACTAF) - now known as Pacific Technical Assistance Mechanism (PACTAM), has sent more than 10 technical advisors to assist the government of Solomon Islands. These placements have been with government ministries.
