Pacific Farmer Organisations: Strategic Plan 2022- 2027

Since 2013, the Pacific Farmer Organisations’ initiative has increased its membership from 13 farmer
organisations in 2013 to 30 farmer organisations in 2022. The initiative has also seen an increase in
geographic spread from 6 Pacific Island Countries and Territories (PICTs) in 2013 to 12 PICTs in 2022.
Finally, the initiative has been able to mobilise investment for farmer organisations from an annual budget of
USD 170,000 in 2013 to USD 1,700,000 in 2022. PIFON exemplifies regional collaboration between grass
roots organisations. The partnership model also demonstrates how farmers working together can create a
powerful movement that attracts investment from the public sector.
