Food Security and Sustainable Livelihood Programme for Pacific Island Countries: National Capacity Building for Strategic Project Identification and Design.

The considerable food price rise and financial crises and already felt climate change effects on Pacific Island Countries (PICs) have highlighted food security and livelihoods vulnerability and fragility in the region. With many mainly very small islands dispersed in a vast ocean, the challenges for individual countries to address their common but also diverse problems, is enormous. PICs have various policies and initiatives in relating to agriculture, NRM and nutrition. However there are considerable challenges to bring them together into concerted and practical food security focused program and projects. Not least of these is the need for taking an inter-sectoral approach, which in turn requires multiple stakeholders processes, not just working strictly within an agriculture sphere. The present TCP proposal will address this in the context of the proposed Food Security and Sustainable Livelihoods Programme (FSSLP). The FSSLP will implement several of the significant issues identified in National Medium Term Priority Frameworks that FAO SAP has developed inc consultations in each of the Pacific countries in 2008-09. These form part of the Pacific Multi-Country NMTPF (PMC-NMTPF) that has been endorsed by Ministers. The countries of the region in turn endorsed the concept of the FSSLP as a follow-on from the FAO implemented Regional Programme for Food Security (RPFS, 2004- 09). The goal of FSSLP is to contribute to the improvement of food security of poor and vulnerable populations, especially for women and youth, in the Programme countries. The Programme will achieve this by providing resources for the following components: 1) Support to community and household investments on food production and livelihoods; 2) Development of national service provision capacity and facilities to support the above; 3) Multi-country support on food security initiatives, addressing national capacity building, related issues of trade, climate change resilience and food safety; and 4) Programme management. FAO has built a partnership with IFAD, the interest of the Italian government for co-financing FSSLP, and the proposal has been discussed with other partners in the region and in country. A Programme implementation Manual has been drafted, which includes an action plan for the first two years. The present TCP will begin the process of implementing FSSLP.
