This project aims to define a shared definition and vision of the Regional Research Agenda (RRA) concept and its expected outputs, and to develop the framework and processes that deliver those expected outputs into the medium term.

There is currently no regional process for coordination and collaboration of research on agriculture and forestry that is owned and managed by Pacific. Increasingly the major issues and opportunities of agriculture and forestry facing Pacific Island Countries and Territories (PICT) are common across many nations, making regional research collaboration also increasingly essential.
