Objectives

The objective of the national consultation is to further refine and validate the National Action Plan for local food crops and fisheries value chain development and design a roadmap for mainstreaming the priority interventions into national policy and programme processes leading to its final endorsement through shared ownership. Additionally, the aim is to agree on the need for establishing and maintaining Value Chain Coordination/Agricultural Innovation (VCC/AI) in-country platforms to address the critical and interconnected issues for enhancing VC development and gain buy-in for joint action for improving incomes and nutrition outcomes.

The Fiji National Action Plan (FNAP) was developed by a cross-section of national stakeholders who attended the Fiji Forum. It addresses the four key themes to tackle country-specific challenges in agribusiness and value chain development:

  • Nutrition – Reduction in NCDs and increased income from investments in local food crops and fisheries value chain development
  • Finance – Making farmers bank ready and banks farmer ready
  • ICT – Robust Communication System for Growers
  • Insurance – Robust Insurance Package for Farmers
