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 cases of the Republic of the Marshall Islands, Solomon Islands and Vanuatu

How well is our understanding of the current status of women in relation to land tenure, land management and access to land in matrilineal societies in the Pacific? The question forms the central objective of this research by Joel Simo, Ana Naupa, Kristina Stege and Ruth Maetala and Dr. Elise Huffer commissioned by the Pacific Islands Forum Secretariat in 2007.

The researchers attempt to improve our understanding of the roles of women over land in matrilineal societies in two dimensions. One dimension is examining women's role with respect to land. The second dimension is examining the role of women in leadership, including decision-making. Both dimensions are explored in terms of the past and the present thereby allowing for the changes that might have occurred over time to be observed and how those changes impact on women's current status with respect to land and leadership.

Discussion Guide on Ecosystem Restoration

'Hope in a Changing Climate' helps to educate people worldwide about the potential of integrated poverty eradication and large-scale ecosystem rehabilitation.
The realization that human impact is negatively affecting climate change is not something that should frighten us into inactivity; exactly the opposite is true, it is a wake-up call to action. This crisis is showing us what our purpose must be in order to ensure future generations will be able to survive and thrive. Its is showing us the limits and the potential of human consciousness.
