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 Pacific plan was endorsed by Leaders at the Pacific Islands Forum meeting in October 2005. It is a 'living' document ensuring flexibility so that the Vision of the Leaders at the goal of regional integration extend far into the future. This revised version of the Pacific Plan follows decisions taken by Leaders at the Forum meeting in October 2007 where they welcomed the considerable progress made in implementing the Pacific Plan, noted the key challenges that need to be overcome in order to Plan to continue to be effectively implemented, and agreed on a number of key commitments in order to move the Plan forward.

The new LRD strategic plan has three objectives: improved food and nutritional security; integrated and sustainable agriculture and forestry resource management and development; and improved bio-security and increased trade in agriculture and forestry products. The second and third objectives continued from the previous plan, although the respective outputs have been broadened in coverage and deepend in scope. The first is a new objective, brought to the fore by the global soaring food (and fuel) price crisis.

Operational Plan for Sustainable Food Security in Asia and the Pacific

This paper lays out the operational plan of the Asian Development Bank (ADB) to help Asia and the Pacific achieve sustainable food security. The operational plan is based on the premise the region's long-term food security is at risk. This is due to the high vulnerability in the global and regional food supply and market systems, projected increases in food demand, sustainability concerns from land and water constraints, and unfolding climate change impacts. ADB recognizes sustainable food security as a crucial element of its long-term strategic framework, Strategy 2020 (ADB 2008a) in freeing Asia from from poverty. The operational plan thus accords priority to achieving sustainable food security in Asia and the Pacific. The goal is to improve the availability of, and access to, adequate and safe food in a sustainable manner, especially for the large number of poor, women, and other vulnerable groups in the region.

PROJET Pour qu'alimentation rime avec securite dans le Paifique

la sécurité alimentaire. Son objectif est de soutenir les pays du Pacifi que dans leurs efforts pour permettre à tous leurs citoyens d’avoir, à tout moment, un accès physique et économique à une nourriture suffi sante, saine et nutritive. Cette démarche nous rapproche de notre concept des « îles-santé » et contribue à la réalisation du « Plan Pacifique »

Pour qu’alimentation rime avec sécurité dans le Pacifique
La sécurité alimentaire existe lorsque tous les êtres humains ont, à tout moment, un accès physique et économique à une nourriture suffi sante, saine et nutritive leur permettant de satisfaire leurs besoins énergétiques et leurs préférences alimentaires pour mener une vie saine et active
(Sommet alimentaire mondial, 2009).
