Support for the development of the National Agricultural Plan was provided by the CARICOM Secretariat under Component 1 of the 10th EDF Agricultural Policy Programme (APP). This component focuses on strengthening the regional agricultural development strategy through inter alia providing support for the development and implementation of national and regional agricultural sector development policies, including the CARICOM Community Agriculture Policy (CAP). This initiative is intended to facilitate the development of national agriculture policies, action plans and incentive regimes targeting small producers/entrepreneurs linked to regional policy/strategies. Specific focus of the programme is on: creating awareness primarily of the CAP especially as it relates to small producers/ entrepreneurs; developing/strengthening national policies consistent with the overall regional (CAP) policy, and developing the framework to facilitate the alignment of national with regional policy and the establishment of a Planners Forum (virtual and face to face meetings and participation in international fora).
