Agribusiness development in Small Island Developing States

11 July 2014. Brussels. The Brussels Development Briefing on ‘Building resilience of SIDS through trade and agribusiness development‘, took place in the context of 2104 as the year of Small Island Developing States (SIDS) and the upcoming UN Conference on Small Island Developing States (1-4 September 2014, Apia, Samoa).

Small islands face a greater risk of marginalization due to the combined adverse consequences of their small size, remoteness from large markets and high economic vulnerability to economic and natural shocks beyond domestic control.

The Briefing gave an overview of the main challenges and opportunities for agribusiness development in SIDS. It also discuss some best practices in agribusiness in ACP regions and strategies to identify new opportunities especially through innovative partnerships.
