Call for EOI – Solomon Islands Partnership Support
Invitation to submit expressions of interest (EOI) for partnership support
The Pacific Horticultural and Agricultural Market Access Plus (PHAMA Plus) Program invites stakeholders (public, private, NGOs) working in export-oriented horticultural, agricultural and sawn timber sectors to submit an expression of interest.
PHAMA Plus is open to partnerships and innovative ideas that address constraints to agricultural businesses and contribute to inclusive economic growth and improved rural livelihoods.
The program is especially interested in concepts that incorporate new approaches to strengthen Gender, Disability and Social Inclusion (GEDSI). Concepts that incorporate ideas to build environment, climate change, disaster resilience and business continuity are also encouraged.
PHAMA Plus is supported by the Australia and New Zealand governments with an overarching goal to improve economic growth and rural livelihoods across ten Pacific countries by developing and growing export opportunities for Pacific primary exports to Australia, New Zealand and other countries.
PHAMA Plus has been working in Solomon Islands since 2011 to strengthen the country’s key export industries such as cocoa, timber, seafood, coconut and handicraft, and to promote industry coordination through the establishment of industry working groups.
The Program is now supporting the tree crops (cocoa, coconuts), sawn timber, kava and fresh produce sectors to increase the quantity and quality exports in ways that benefit farming households, producers, exporters and importers.
