Agriculture and aquaculture production are essential to economic development, sustainability and livelihoods.
Most Pacific Islanders source their livelihoods from the land or sea. Agriculture and aquaculture products and enterprises support rural and regional communities, providing poverty alleviation and positive health impacts. However, production systems in the region are very fragile, and socio-economic potential is often not realised. Through trans-disciplinary research and development, ACPIR works closely with local stakeholders, communities, regional governments and other agencies to unlock potential and create sustainable impacts.
