The Pacific Island Farmers Organisation Network (PIFON) has released a new video that captures the lessons learned from farmer-orientated value chain training in Fiji, Tonga and Vanuatu. This video was produced under the jointly funded project by the ACP-EU Technical Centre for Agricultural and Rural Co-operation (CTA) and the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) on 'Leveraging the development of local food crops and fisheries value chains for improved nutrition and sustainable food systems in the Pacific Islands' which is being implemented in collaboration with the Pacific Islands Private Sector Organization (PIPSO).
Since 2014, PIFON has been working with nine of its farmer organisation members across the Pacific region to reach farmers and other stakeholders with their new value chain teaching approaches. This video captures the feedback from farmers, farmer organisations, traders and the public sector about how the training has impacted them, and also, what can be done to improve on the approach taken.
