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.

Findings from the study indicated a strong need for sharing agriculture and forestry information amongst Pacific organisations at all levels. In addition, it was found that many of those visited were not aware of PAFPNet. This included people working in the agriculture and forestry sectors, NGOs and civil society. Community participation is critical for the success of any rural development initiative. With a wider membership including NGOs, women’s groups, youth
and church groups, PAFPNet could reach and inform rural communities and enhance their participation in development.

PAFPNet provides an opportunity for stakeholders to connect, share and engage in forums and activities intended for the development of effective agriculture and forestry policies.  It also offers a platform for Pacific stakeholders to correlate with those from other regions and institutions and learn from their experiences in agricultural and forestry policy development and implementation.  PAFPNet is forging closer alliances and cooperation with other regional and international networks, particularly with the African, Caribbean, and Pacific Group of States (ACP).
