Title: An assessment of the proposal for a Pacific Economic and Political Community
Author(s): Chand, Satish
Date published: 2003
Publisher: Asia Pacific Press
Description: 
The challenge faced by most Pacific island countries and territories is how to address these problems and carry out the R&D activities related to food crop improvement under the circumstances of prohibitively high costs of research, limited capacity, and the complexity of the regional development issues. The concept of a Pacific Regional Crop Improvement Programme (PARCIP) arose to address these issues and is outlined below, together with the rationale for collaboration and networking amongst Pacific island countries and territories to undertake research into food crop improvement. An analysis of the issues, challenges and opportunities of such a program to achieve food security in the Pacific region is presented.
