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.

It offers the landscape of existing leadership models in both informal and formal settings and highlights successful initiatives that are crucial to addressing leadership issues faced by young people in Fiji.

A L'ECOUTE DES JEUNES OCEANIENS

La présente stratégie régionale vise à recommander à l’ensemble des parties prenantes une série d’actions et d’initiatives propres à encourager la participation active des jeunes à l’agriculture dans l’ensemble de la région, ainsi que la promotion de l’esprit d’entreprise chez les jeunes agriculteurs. Nous espérons que les pays océaniens adapteront cette stratégie à leur situation nationale et prendront des engagements fermes en faveur de la mise en oeuvre des recommandations correspondant à leur situation propre.
