Information about the project
Agriculture and fisheries is the lifeblood of Pacific countries. Just two years ago, little was known publicly about what a country Government’s plans and priorities were for these vital sectors, the extent of public support and where one might engage. This all changed with the development of “Agriculture Policy Banks” (APBs). Today the APBs covering fifteen Pacific countries enables online access - by anyone to key agricultural information; policies, commodity plans, statistics and the operations of Agricultural Ministries. The benefits are already immense; Nationally, there is raised awareness and more inclusive engagement and fostering complementary regional approaches for common commodities.
