Pacific Agricultural & Forestry Policy Network

Effective policies rely on good information. Policy makers from the region identified weak communication, poor engagement of stakeholders, and lack of timely information as constraints to the development of effective Pacific agricultural and forestry policies and the enforcement and implementation of existing ones. A robust regional information exchange was identified as a valuable tool to strengthen communication in the area of agricultural and forestry policy.

FIRST PRIZE WINNER

Alana Tukuniu (Ms.)
Niue
Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries

My name is Alana Tukuniu, and I reside on Niue. I am a Crop Research Trainee in the Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries, this is not just my employment it is my passion.

I didn’t always like growing crops, and often baulked at my father who, liked to grow his own vegetables. My attitude shifted once I connected farming with the environment and how they could positively support each other. I currently grow my own crops, some of which I sell, at my own plantation and keep a small flock of chickens at home. My partner also raises puaka for a mixture of cultural ceremonies, income generation and home consumption. I am constantly learning about farming, and love the sight of crops growing healthily, and collecting eggs from my chickens each morning. My passion for agriculture continues to strengthen as I constantly see the benefits that are derived from it.
