The purpose of the economic briefs is as follows:

  • Raise awareness of the SPC’s economics work internally to make SPC technical staff more aware of how SPC’s economists can assist in designing, implementing, and evaluating projects.
  • Communicate the findings of SPC’s economics work to a non-economist audience, including SPC staff, government officials in SPC member countries, representatives of donor countries, and the general public
  • Improve the understanding of the role of economics in improving project design and delivery, and decision making
  • Improve cohesion, communications, and cooperation amongst SPC’s economists.

The Pacific Agriculture Policy Digest is a quarterly publication, reporting activities relating to the Intra-ACP Agriculture Policy Programme (APP) – PAPP (the Pacific component) being implemented by SPC. The Digest covers initiatives including agricultural policy, climate smart agriculture, market information systems and farmers’ networks, in an attempt to ensure that Pacific ACP countries, donors and development partners remain informed of the scope of work under PAPP. The APP is supported by the European Union and delivers outcomes across the Caribbean states, and 15 countries in the Pacific including Timor-Leste. We welcome feedback on the content of our newsletters.

Welcome to this monthly updates of PAPP Activities - prepared by the European Union supported intra-ACP Agricultural Policy Project (PAPP).
