Pacific Agribusiness Research for Development Initiative (PARDI)

PARDI — ‘Pacific Agribusiness Research for Development Initiative’ — commenced in February 2010. The project is coordinated by The University of Queensland and funded by the Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research (ACIAR).  PARDI seeks to create sustainable livelihood development outcomes for the South Pacific forestry, fisheries and crop-based sectors.

The PARDI mission is to improve the livelihoods of people in the South Pacific Island partner countries by underpinning more market-focused development of competitive high-value agricultural, fisheries and forestry products.

PARDI seeks to enable South Pacific Island communities to achieve long-term viability and sustainability by building skills to develop robust businesses and supply chains that can compete in the international marketplace. The predicted economic development that will arise in the area is based on the premise that the private sector will thrive where government provides the platform for private sector-led growth.
