About the INTRA-ACP Agricultural Policy Programme
The Intra-ACP APP was a 20 million, 4-year (2013–2016), technical cooperation framework focusing on the Caribbean and the Pacific. It was funded under the 10th European Development Fund (EDF). It focused on addressing the common problems faced in the two regions by promoting the development of smallholder agriculture through its closer integration into local, national, regional and, where appropriate, global markets.
