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 development of high-value crops for domestic consumption and export is seen as a priority for economic development and improved livelihoods in many Pacific island countries. The Fiji Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (MAFF) identified fruits and vegetables as among the six “priority concerns” for export promotion and import substitution. The government has identified cabbages, lettuce, tomatoes, capsicums, carrots, onions, potatoes, and peas as target crops for greater production. Hotels, supermarkets and restaurants are seen as key domestic markets.
