This document will focus on several particularly high priorities that have been identified by member nations: building inclusive and efficient food chains in Pacific Island countries (PIC); revitalizing the coconut sector for increased resilience and food security; sustainable intensification of aquaculture; livestock production: achievements, problems and impact on human health; and the future of family farming. Before discussing these emerging issues, however, the document will first provide an update on food and nutrition security in the region.
