About the group
Do you want to contribute to food security in your region?
Are you worried about the lack of information and awareness on specific agricultural issues for your region?
Would you like to make a difference in policy making?
Are you ready to contribute to generate economic growth and reduce poverty in your region?
Here is an opportunity to learn and exchange on innovative agricultural practices. The Intra-ACP Agricultural Policy Programme will contribute to policy incentives for smallholders by increasing production and productivity of selected commercial products using new technologies in communication and in farming in the Caribbean and Pacific regions. This Programme plan to promote exchange of good practices, market strategies, and new policy implementation in order to contribute to the crucial development of the Pacific and Caribbean region within 2020.
Assuming that the two regions are facing similar perspectives from a trade, environmental and agricultural perspective, the ACP Secretariat and the European Commission have decided to unite efforts to increase the capabilities of agricultural organisations in the Caribbean and the Pacific.
To do so, they would like to foster collaboration in order to exchange best practices (technical, economic and institutional expertise) between policy-makers, researchers, producers and various other stakeholders, to build stronger markets and reinforce effective policies.
Through Agritourism fairs, Post-harvest capacity building and training activities, online debates and workshops on its four priorities, the Intra-ACP APP aims to give Small islands economies a wider exposure to international initiatives and programs.
We believe in agriculture’s potential role in economic growth and poverty alleviation. Policy-makers and political leaders can contribute to the overall objective and the enhancement of regional (Caribbean and Pacific) and interregional capabilities of agricultural sectors in eradicating poverty.
