Increasing Agricultural Commodity Trade (IACT)

The main goal of the European Union-funded Increasing Agricultural Commodity Trade (IACT) project is to strengthen the export capacity of Pacific member countries in the primary industries of agriculture, forestry, aquaculture and livestock. The project employs a whole-of-supply chain approach, assisting commercial ventures and producer groups to become export-oriented, market-driven enterprises that will consistently supply overseas markets with competitive agriculture, forestry and aquaculture products. The project is implemented by the Land Resources Division of the Secretariat of the Pacific Community (SPC) in Suva, Fiji and started in June 2011.

Risk Management in the Coconut Sector

Thursday, 05 June 2014 14:34

Coconut producers in the region face a range of risks including climate, natural disasters, pests and diseases as well as market.

The CIDP project will assess existing risk management gaps in coconut sector in the Pacific region and address these with specific capacity building measures ensuring that small producers and other in the value chain have better access to risk management tools, especially concerning climate, pest and market risks, that will help them better cope with existing threats that affect the region and have the potential to cause severe losses for the Pacific coconut sector.

As training materials and the Coconut Sector Risk Management manual are developed they will be available on this page.
