Since the establishment of the Sasakawa Pacific Island Nations Fund in 1989, the Sasakawa Peace Foundation (SPF) has carried out various activities including exchange and human resource development projects with the aim of contributing to the stability of the Pacific region and prosperity of the Pacific island nations.
More recently, the SPF has focused on the Micronesia Region, which has in-depth historical ties with Japan and is closely located to Asia geographically. In February 2016, the SPF, together with the Nippon Foundation, signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Republic of Palau to support its government through projects for enhancing capacity building of Coast Guard and promoting Eco-conscious Tourism.
