Agricultural Policy, Research and Extension - Awareness Workshop, (Tonga) 18-19 July, 2016
Clear, evidence based national agriculture policies are critical to ensure that there is a coherent plan for Government, farmers, private sector and other stakeholders to sustain rural livelihoods, secure food security and collectively grow the agricultural sector and its contribution to national development.
Tonga’s Ministry of Agriculture, Food, Fisheries and Forestry (MAFFF) has recently completed the first Tonga Agriculture Sector Plan (TASP) 2016-2020. This has been an impressive achievement – a process of several years of hard work, consultations, review and planning. The TASP presents the vision and priorities of the sector to contribute to Tonga’s economic growth and sustained food security in light of changing world economic factors, and climate change. The TASP informs policy dialogue amongst a range of stakeholders from both the public and private sectors.
