    Antigua and Barbuda, Grenada and St. Vincent and the Grenadines areexperiencing drastic changes in their agro-food systems, which stem fromhigh demand for, and dependency on, imported food and food products.Although the food and agriculture sector was traditionally a maincontributor to economic development, agricultural production hassignificantly declined over the past two decades. Growing consumption ofcommercial food comes at the expense of local and traditional staples, suchas fruits, vegetables and legumes, which has been linked to decliningagricultural production in and around homes. Imported foods are heavilyprocessed and high in salt, sugar and fat. Moreover, correlations betweenincreasing imports of processed food and nutrition-related diseases inthe Caribbean have been observed. The region also has the highestmortality rates caused by non-communicable disease and the highestobesity rate in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) region.In response, this project aimed to establish special programmes forsmall-scale, backyard and school gardens to improve food availability andhealthy eating habits and empower women and youth.

    Promoting Inclusive and Sustainable Agribusiness Development in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines - UTF/STV/001/STV 2021

    Saint Vincent and the Grenadines continues to face developmental challenges, especially in terms of reducing poverty and unemployment to levels that are compatible with its per capita income. As poverty is concentrated in rural areas, agricultural development remains crucial for addressing these challenges and supporting national food security. However, the agriculture sector has generally not adapted in an effective manner to the evolving demands of global trade networks. Moreover, market performance is hindered by the existing rudimentary market structure for fresh produce, the lack of aggregation of smallholders and the underdeveloped agro processing industry throughout the country. If strategic investments are made to improve agricultural productivity and increase producers’ access to markets, beneficial outcomes are expected for employment and income levels. With the national context in mind, this project was designed to strengthen the capacities of farmers, fishers, agro processors and aggregators, as well as Government staff, to apply inclusive and sustainable agribusiness development approaches that enhance market access and increase the sale of local agricultural produce.
