IICA technical cooperation strategy in Jamaica 2011-2014
MetadataShow full item record
The IICA Jamaica Country Strategy will serve as a guide to channel the technical cooperation provided by the office over the next four years. The Country Strategy reflects the needs of the agricultural and rural sector, inclusive of the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries and the various stakeholders with whom we work, and aligns these needs with the capacities of the local office and IICA's support network. The development of the Country Strategy was initiated by a review of the Agriculture Sector component of Vision 2030 (Jamaica's long term development plan) as well as the 2010 budget presentation by the Minister of Agriculture and Fisheries to the Parliament. The priorities of the Ministry are many and varied and demonstrate the current drive to position the agricultural sector as a leading economic force in the country. Discussions were also held with representatives of the Ministry prior to finalization of the country strategy. Resulting from the document review and stakeholder consultation, the IICA Jamaica office has identified five priority areas for technical cooperation. These are further elaborated into project profiles covering the protected agriculture and apiculture sub-sectors, institutional strengthening for our stakeholders, agro-tourism, and research and development. The office will concentrate its activities over the next few years within these project/ programme areas.
