The Kiwa Initiative POLFN Project Kick-Off: meeting with PROTEGE experts for a first experience sharing

On February 9th, the newly established Kiwa Initiative Pacific Organic Learning Farm Network (POLFN) team participated in its first training with members of the PROTEGE* network during a videoconference. The focus of this working session was on the establishment and management of learning farms. It was an opportunity to share the experiences of PROTEGE members located in the French territories in the Pacific. This organic learning farms network created by the Pacific Community (SPC) is designed to demonstrate the benefits of Nature-based Solutions (NbS) in agroecology and agroforestry.

Increasing access to organic farming methods and technologies to address food security, climate change adaptation and biodiversity conservation are the main objectives of the Kiwa Initiative Pacific Organic Learning Farm Network (POLFN). This €4.6 million project aims to meet the needs of small-scale farmers in Fiji, Nauru, Tonga and Solomon Islands, in cooperation with Wallis and Futuna, French Polynesia and New Caledonia.

*PROTEGE is funded by the European Union under the 11th European Development Fund (FED) and implemented by the Pacific Community (SPC) and the Pacific Regional Environment Program (SPREP). For more information about PROTEGE visit: https://protege.spc.int/en
