Some 250 leaders, decision-makers and agrifood actors gathered for the first Caribbean and Pacific Agrifood Forum. 

Within this context, the 2nd Caribbean Agribusiness Forum took place on 5-6 November. It is linked to the Brussels Briefings organised by CTA, the European Commission, the ACP Group and Concord on key issues related to ARD in ACP countries.In addition to experiences from the Caribbean, experts from the Pacific and Indian Ocean  will participate through the Intra ACP Agricultural Policy Programme. The Forum was organised by CTA, IICA, CABA in collaboration with the Ministry of Agriculture, Food, Fisheries and Water Resource Management and Barbados Tourism Product Authority (BTPA) and was held at the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre (LESC), St Michael, Barbados.

The Brussels Briefing no.43 on the subject of “Emerging donors and rising powers in agriculture in ACP countries” took place on Tuesday 27 October 2015 at the ACP Secretariat (451 Avenue Georges Henri, 1200 Brussels, Room C ). The video is available here.

The Briefing discussed the key challenges and new opportunities to enhance South-South and Triangular cooperation. The Briefing : i) reviewed successes and the lessons learned from research and practice; ii) promoted the exchange of information on best practices and drivers of success; iii) fed into the debate various perspectives on policy options. It will review the key challenges and opportunities in South-South cooperation in agriculture and the lessons learned from research and practice. It also looked into examples of successes in South-South and triangular partnerships across the ACP.

The European Union (EU) has contributed about E600 million to the Swaziland National Agriculture Investment Plan (SNAIP) which shall be implemented  this year (2015) up to 2025. However, the entire programme is estimated to cost about E26 billion. So far only E8.1 billion has been raised from different sources, including the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) which has already contributed about E330 million. The deficit of about E16.9 billion remains. SNAIP Logistics Committee Member Howard Mbuyisa urged the business community to contribute and raise at least 22 % of the 69 % budget deficit, equivalent to E3.7 billion.
