A case study making up part of the FAO project under the EU AAACP program

Farmer organisations and the market in Melanesia—January 2012

This study and report was supported by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) through the EU funded AAACP program. The objective of the program is to improve the livelihoods of producers in commodity dependent ACP countries. The focus of the FAO component was to enhance the capacity of farmers organizations to participate effectively in rapidly changing markets and provide quality services to their members. KGA receives core funding from AusAID and this supported the time of the KGA staff who carried out the value chain study.

The Forest Foods of Lauru

In the drought of the late 1990s, people in the Solomon Islands and PNG turned to their traditional bush foods to supplement their diets.

Now, the population of Central Choiseul, Solomon Islands, has traditional knowledge of its forest foods documented, thanks to an AusAID-funded research and publication project carried out by TerraCircle.

The Forest Foods of Lauru is the title of the book. It documents not only the foods, their processing, and cooking but also the traditional land classification system that is based on ecological zones from coastal mangrove swamp to the mountain top. The zoning forms part of the traditional forest food knowledge set.
