Recent studies (C2013/188) highlight both the current decline and unrealised potential of beekeeping in Papua New Guinea (PNG), Fiji and Solomon Islands.

Beekeeping in these countries is facing major challenges with declining productivity and participation. Activities undertaken as part of this SRA sought to strengthen existing partnerships, investigate the potential for improving women’s participation in beekeeping enterprises, establish new methods for smallholders to manage mites in PNG and to conduct workshops and stakeholder meetings to inform the development of the full proposal to ACIAR.
