    INTERGOVERNMENTAL GROUP ON HARD FIBRES AND INTERGOVERNMENTAL GROUP ON JUTE, KENAF AND ALLIED FIBRES - Intersessional Meeting. Drift Action Plan 2021

    The economic context under which jute, abaca, coir, kenaf, sisal and allied fibres (JACKS +) sectors operate has become very challenging and competitive, and urgent action is required to ensure the sectors’ long-term economic sustainability. At the same time, the global transition towards a bio-based economy provides many new market opportunities. As requested by the Joint Meeting (JM) of the Intergovernmental Group (IGG) on Hard Fibres and the IGG on Jute, Kenaf and Allied Fibres held in Beijing, China, in October 2019, the Secretariat commissioned the development of an action plan to strengthen and streamline the efforts of the group in promoting and modernizing the JACKS+ sectors. The action plan builds on the priority areas and working groups of the IGG and covers three main themes: (1) Research and Development; (2) Sustainable Management Systems and Life-Cycle Assessment; and (3) Foresight and Business Intelligence & Transition Management. The action plan foresees the foundation of a ‘Knowledge and Capacity Centre’ by JACKS+ fibre producing countries as a practical approach to support the IGG in addressing the persistent challenges of the JACKS+ sectors that prevent them from becoming competitive on a global scale and engage in emerging global sustainability transitions. A concrete action plan for the first 36 months (three years) is proposed as a pilot period to build the Knowledge and Capacity Centre with the aim to develop it into a centre to support the JACKS+ sectors.
