Provide support on development and implementation of national organic policy in Solomon Islands

This is to inform the development of the Solomon Islands National Organic Policy. This included consultations with relevant stakeholders for inputs and feedback, including gender inclusion considerations and vendor needs.
Finalise development of the POETCom 2021-2025 Strategic Plan through a gender lens, and mainstreaming gender into the new POETCom Strategic Plan
POETCom developed its new strategic plan with the theme ‘Growing Our Future’ which has specific focus on gender mainstreaming. This included harvesting gender and value chain lessons learned from the previous strategic plan implementation. The new POETCom strategic plan incorporates gender equality and social inclusion (GESI) as an approach throughout the plan, including a guiding recommendations towards gender equality outcomes – gaps, opportunities and way forward.
Sharing of organic information and knowledge management system established by launching the Organic Pasifika side of the POETCom website
The Organic Pasifika website is central to POETCom communication as it shares on good practices, lessons learned through project implementation, presents the work that the POETCom Secretariat is doing and is a hub for resources on organic agriculture.
