    Pacific Forest Sector Outlook Study 2023 2023
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    This outlook study focuses on the Pacific Small Island Developing States (SIDS), comprising 14 countries in the Pacific region – Fiji, Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands, and Vanuatu (Melanesia); the Federated States of Micronesia, Kiribati, the Marshall Islands, Nauru, and Palau (Micronesia); and the Cook Islands, Niue, Samoa, Tonga, and Tuvalu (Polynesia). It examines the future prospects for forests and trees in the Pacific, providing insights into potential pathways of change and options for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The study was prepared by FAO in response to a request from the Pacific Ministers of Agriculture and Forestry and incorporates information from country outlook papers, thematic studies, and various published and unpublished sources.

    Aquaculture Business Investment Planning and Development to Increase Resilience and Improve Food Security - TCP/SAP/3603 2020
    Also available in:

    Aquaculture has been identified by many Pacific Island governments as a sector with strong potential to innovate, reap productivity gains, generate employment and contribute to regional food and nutrition security and livelihood diversification. Nonetheless, against a backdrop of climate change and insufficient finance streams for such a specialized sector, aquaculture production in Small Island Developing States (SIDS) in the Pacific Region requires new streams of technical cooperation and public-private finance. This will facilitate a more sustainable transformation towards a more economically and environmentally viable and resilient aquaculture sector, in turn allowing those involved to benefit from new technologies and international best practices. With growing regional demand for fish, aquaculture in Pacific Island Countries and Territories (PICTs) could become an increasingly important employer for rural communities. The rapid growth in production over the past three decades has been largely due to the expansion of cultured areas, technological intensification and increased use of aquafeed, at times leading to short-term increases in income and output, but also adversely impacting marine ecosystems. To this end, and through its support in developing national and regional business development and investment strategies for aquaculture, the project responds to the needs of the countries of the Micronesian Association for Sustainable Aquaculture (MASA) – comprised of the Marshall Islands, Micronesia (Federated States of), Nauru and Palau – for business planning information and tools. In strengthening the business strategy and sustainability of this sector, FAO and regional partners, such as the Pacific Community (SPC), seek to support community-led aquaculture farms, public and private sector actors along the aquaculture value chain and relevant line ministries (e.g. fisheries, marine resources and environmental authorities) in the MASA countries. As such, national consultations on policy, regulatory and technical capacity reviews proved timely in identifying aquaculture species most suitable for investment, as part of cost-effective business development plans that pay special attention to managing biosecurity risks.

    Report of the FAO/SPC regional workshop on improving information on status and trends of fisheries in the Pacific region. Apia, Samoa, 22-26 May 2006 2010
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    The FAO/SPC Regional Workshop on Improving Information on Status and Trends of Fisheries in the Pacific Region was organized jointly by the Secretariat of the Pacific Community through its Coastal Fisheries Programme and FAO. Representatives from eighteen countries/territories in the Pacific region were invited. With the overall objective of facilitating the effective generation and use of fishery data and information for sound policy development and responsible fisheries management, t he Workshop reviewed the relevance and adequacy of the existing national fishery information and data collection systems and examined viable options to improve the quality of fishery data and information, which suit specific settings of subregions (Melanesia, Micronesia and Polynesia) and are operational in a budget and manpower limited situation.
