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.

The aim of the National Agriculture and Livestock Sector Policy is to guide agricultural development along the lines of the Government development strategy. Specifically this Policy Development will provide a framework to reorient its agricultural production to meet the development needs of Solomon Islands. The National Agricultural and Livestock Sector Policy of the Solomon Islands is thus designed through vast consultative process to facilitate a structured approach towards a socially and culturally acceptable, economically vibrant and ecologically sustainable agricultural sector that will contribute towards poverty alleviation, food security and economic development. Though this National Agriculture and Livestock Sector Policy is meant to be for a medium term agenda 2009, however it sets the base for long-term Agriculture and Livestock Development Plan to 2014.
