Draft Framework for Action on Food Security in the Pacific

The document outlines the Pacific approach to food security. Its aim is to support Pacific countries to move towards ensuring that their people, at all times, have physical, social and economic access to sufficient, safe and nutritious food. It brings us closer to our vision of "Healthy Islands" and helps fulfill the "Pacific Plan".

Towards A Food Secure Pacific
Food security exists when all people, at all times, have physical, social and economic access to sufficient, safe and nutritious food to meet their dietary needs and food preferences for an active and healthy life.

Operational Plan for Sustainable Food Security in Asia and the Pacific

This paper lays out the operational plan of the Asian Development Bank (ADB) to help Asia and the Pacific achieve sustainable food security. The operational plan is based on the premise the region's long-term food security is at risk. This is due to the high vulnerability in the global and regional food supply and market systems, projected increases in food demand, sustainability concerns from land and water constraints, and unfolding climate change impacts. ADB recognizes sustainable food security as a crucial element of its long-term strategic framework, Strategy 2020 (ADB 2008a) in freeing Asia from from poverty. The operational plan thus accords priority to achieving sustainable food security in Asia and the Pacific. The goal is to improve the availability of, and access to, adequate and safe food in a sustainable manner, especially for the large number of poor, women, and other vulnerable groups in the region.

Land Resources Division Strategic Plan 2009-2012 (2008)

This LRD strategic plan had three objectives: improved food and nutritional security; integrated and sustainable agriculture and forestry resource management and development; and improved bio-security and increased trade in agriculture and forestry products. The second and third objectives continued from the previous plan, although the respective outputs were broadened in coverage and deepened in scope. The first was a new objective, brought to the fore by the global soaring food (and fuel) price crisis.
