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.

Food security means that all people, at all times, have physical, social and economic access to sufficient, safe and nutritious food to meet their dietary needs and preferences for an active and healthy life (World Food
Summit 1996).

The right to food security is central to human development and many of the major human rights treaties. It is also implicit in Goal 1 of the Millennium Development Goals – eradicating extreme poverty and hunger.

Agricultural and rural extension is one of the key policy instruments available to governments to bring about positive change in agriculture and rural communities.

Extension is the process of working with rural and farming communities to build on their knowledge and skills and thus improve their economic, social and environmental well-being.

Invertebrate export fisheries are persistently overfished as a result of the local population’s greater fishing capacity and growing need for cash, coupled with an expanding market in China and “fly-by-night” investment by the marine products sector with little interest in long-term sustainability.
