This programme's main objective is to improve the economic, social and environmental benefits of 15 Pacific ACP states. This will be achieved by strengthening the regional economic integration and the sustainable management of natural resources. The specific outcome of the programme is to achieve food security and economic growth, while addressing climate change resilience and conservation of marine biodiversity.
