The Pacific Parliaments Network (PPN) is a initiative designed to support Pacific legislatures to access parliamentary information and research services from a regional platform. It is a collaboration of the Parliament of New Zealand, the Parliament of Australia and the United Nations Development Programme.
The PPN collects together information on parliamentary events and training opportunities in the Pacific region. It also serves as a network to share information on relevant issues between parliaments in the region.. Through the Parliamentary Research Request Service, Pacific Clerks are invited to submit requests for briefing papers for members of Parliament, advice on procedural matters, or share the latest news about their parliaments. The PPN team will endeavour to respond to such requests as soon as possible.
