2nd Caribbean–Pacific Agri-Food Forum

2nd Caribbean–Pacific Agri-Food Forum

Aperçu de l'événement

The Technical Centre for Agricultural and Rural Cooperation (CTA) and partners in the Caribbean and the Pacific are organising a series of work sessions to engage in collective action that can help to spur innovative agricultural and rural development – not just in the Caribbean, but also in Pacific Small Island Developing States (SIDS). 

The Caribbean Pacific Agri-food Forum was held in Bridgetown, Barbados from November 2 to 6, 2015. With an action-oriented and people-centred approach, the Forum will feature a rich programme of workshops, meetings and opportunities for networking between some of the more than 250 participants expected to attend. Creating a business environment for agri-food production and marketing will be a strong focus throughout the week, with a particular emphasis on how small-scale producers can become part of dynamic and inclusive value chains. Young people will receive special attention, with sessions that examine the potential of ICTs to draw them into the agri-food sector.

Les organisateurs

  • CTA

    Le Centre technique de coopération agricole et rurale (CTA) est une institution internationale conjointe des États du Groupe ACP (Afrique, Caraïbes, Pacifique) et de l’Union européenne (UE). Il intervient dans les pays ACP pour améliorer la sécurité alimentaire, la résilience et la croissance économique à travers des innovations durables dans le domaine agricole. Le CTA opère dans le cadre de l’Accord de Cotonou et est financé par l’UE.

  • IICA

    As the specialised agency of the Inter-American System for agriculture, the Inter-American Institute for Cooperation on Agriculture (IICA) supports the efforts of the Member States to achieve agricultural development and rural well-being. The Institute provides its cooperation through daily, close and permanent collaboration with its 34 Member States, whose needs it addresses expeditiously in order to achieve increasingly inclusive, competitive and sustainable agriculture. Without a doubt, IICA’s most valuable asset is the close relationship it maintains with the beneficiaries of its work. Since our institution was founded, we have acquired a wealth of experience in areas such as technology and innovation for agriculture, agricultural health and food safety, agribusiness, agricultural trade, rural development, natural resource management and training.

  • BAS

    The Barbados Agricultural Society (BAS) is an agricultural organisation that is over 150 years old. It was established by an Act of the Barbados Parliament and seeks to represent the interests of the agricultural sector in all relevant forums. The Society is the secretariat for seven commodity groups representing over 500 farmers, with women comprising 30% of the total. BAS is the organiser of Barbados’ premier agricultural exhibition, AGROFEST. In addition to agricultural produce, the event also features seminars, musical concerts and local cuisine. In 2015, attendance at this event rose to 75,000, up from 60,000 in 2014.

  • Intra-ACP APP

    The Intra-ACP Agricultural Policy Programme (Intra-ACP APP) is a broad technical cooperation framework with focus on the Caribbean and Pacific islands, that supports the reduction and eventual eradication of poverty in African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) countries through sustainable development and the integration of sustainable enterprises in these economies into national, regional and, where appropriate, global markets. This €20 million, four-year programme (2013–16) is funded under the 10th European Development Fund (EDF) – an instrument that provides Community aid for development cooperation in the ACP States.
