Coconut Industry Development for the Pacific

Coconut Industry Development for the Pacific (CIDP) is a joint initiative of the Pacific Community (SPC) and the European Union (EU) as part of a broader economic partnership between the EU and the African Caribbean Pacific (ACP) states. The aim of CIDP is to bolster the coconut sector in the region through improving the competitiveness of small producers engaged in the coconut value chains, strengthening regional integration of related markets and the intensification of production across the Cook Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, Fiji, Kiribati, Republic of the Marshall Islands, Nauru, Niue, Palau, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Timor Leste, Tonga, Tuvalu and Vanuatu. The programme runs 2016-2018 and is valued at 4 million Euro.

Risk Management in the Coconut Sector
Monday, 20 February 2017 16:04

Coconut producers in the region face a range of risks including climate, natural disasters, pests and diseases as well as market.

The CIDP project will assess existing risk management gaps in coconut sector in the Pacific region and address these with specific capacity building measures ensuring that small producers and other in the value chain have better access to risk management tools, especially concerning climate, pest and market risks, that will help them better cope with existing threats that affect the region and have the potential to cause severe losses for the Pacific coconut sector.

As training materials and the Coconut Sector Risk Management manual are developed they will be available on this page.
