This value chain coordinating/agricultural innovation (VCC/AI) platform supports communication, networking, knowledge exchange and interactive learning among multiple actors to enhance nutrition-sensitive value chain development and agribusiness performance in the Pacific.
The VCC/AI platform has been initiated under the CTA-IFAD co-funded project Promoting Nutritious Food Systems in the Pacific Islands. The project was implemented in partnership with PIPSO and several national and regional Pacific partners.
The platform has grown into an interactive space with hundreds of community members who generate new ideas and together support collective action to trigger transformational change in policy and practice. Members represent government and other public-sector national and sub-regional agencies, international organisations, research institutions, private agro-enterprises, farmers and farmers’ organisations, community-based organisations as well as other NGOs and financiers, involved in promoting and building nutritious food systems in the Pacific Islands.
