Stories of hope from the Pacific
How better food security is making island life healthier

Island food security is fragile. Natural disasters such as cyclones, flooding, drought, earthquakes, tsunamis and climate change are ever-present threats.
But, today. many Pacific islanders can live healthy lives, thanks to a seven-year food security initiative by 14 island countries supported by Italy, FAO and a broad alliance development partners.
"The over-arching goal of the Regional Programme for Food Security in the Pacific is to help island people grow healthier by eating more nutritious local foods, while reducing the amount of processed imported food they eat," says Vili Fuavao, FAO Subregional Representative for the Pacific Islands.
