The UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and the University of Wollongong in Australia conducted a study to assess the current food system of Solomon Islands in the Pacific. Based on consultations and analysis, the report highlighted three main pathways to strengthen the food systems in this island nation, that include: (1) strengthening and connecting rural food systems; (2) enhancing the national policy environment; and (3) advocating for healthy food environments that are accessible, affordable, and convenient. Also, the assessment suggested to prioritize rural areas alongside urban areas and forged stronger cooperation for sustainable national development. To know more about this report, access it here.
