Aimed at facilitating access to relevant information and knowledge and exchange of experiences and best practices between the two regions in the areas of agricultural policies, value chains and improved technologies and practices, the Intra-ACP APP enables its community members to interact through online platforms used to facilitate exchanges of information between Caribbean and Pacific organisations, associations, existing networks and other structures.
On its Capacity4dev and D-groups platforms, the Intra-ACP APP provides the framework for on-going interactions and knowledge sharing and networking betwwen stakeholders.Discussions are organized around priority themes.
Organised into community of practices, participants select topics they are interested in learning about, according to their intervention areas. In particular, they can identify programmes, projects, activities and initiatives that they can learn from in terms of design, implementation and outputs. They are encourage to share lessons learnt and experiences.
These community of practices will meet online - through the online platforms - but also in annual regional gatherings such as:
The Caribbean and Pacific Weeks of Agriculture: during a full week, farmers, youth and women in agriculture, policy-makers, experts in the field of agriculture and other stakeholders participate in activities aimed at charting the Region’s path in this important sector. The activities include seminars and workshops, special meetings and forums.
The Pacific Agri-tourism Week: provide an opportunity to learn from the regional practices in Agro tourism. Participants from both regions exchange views, network and bring back concrete facts, research material and insights.
