This interactive PWA side event will be used to build the foundation for fostering shared commitment among actors to joint actions that enhance VC performance and provide sustainable income and growth opportunities for farmers and other value chain actors in the Pacific. More specifically mechanisms for improving coordination and spurring
innovation in policy and practice for upgrading Pacific priority value chains will be explored. Delegates will discuss the results and lessons learned from VC studies, identify capacity needs of key stakeholders, reflect on the principles and processes for strengthening collaboration and building trust among VC actors and pilot-test and evaluate the VCC/AI online platform.
The outcomes will be used to address any functional deficiencies and finalise the principles and process for operationalising the VCC/AI platform and design the capacity development programme to support the process.
