Vanuatu Agriculture Sector Policy 2015-2030

The limited size of Vanuatu’s good agricultural land requires that a sustainable development pathway for the agriculture sector be clearly mapped in an Agriculture Sector Policy to ensure maximum benefit, lasting utility and equitable distribution of outputs for the people of Vanuatu irrespective of socio-economic status or geographical location. The development process undertaken in putting together this policy has given due consideration to the expectations and aspirations outlined for Vanuatu in the Constitution, the Priorities & Action Agenda (PAA) for a just, healthy, wealthy and educated Vanuatu, the Planning Long Acting Short (PLAS) acknowledgement of agriculture as the country’s engine for economic growth and employment and global development frameworks including the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and the new Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The final outcome of this policy reflects a national consensus on how this country aspires for its agriculture sector to develop and be sustained.
