The details of this activity have yet to be defined. The aim is to develop a climate-change adaptation strategy in New Caledonia and enable the country to access regional networks on this issue.

This activity is part of an INTEGRE regional initiative aimed at developing organic farming in the Pacific. The objective is to develop sustainable economic activities that are mindful of the Pacific islands’ fragile environments and:

  • promote and develop organic farming in three French-speaking Pacific OCTs;
  •  improve organic farming techniques;
  • and strengthen the regional POET-com network and French-speaking OCT participation.

Three pilot organic farms will be set up, one in New Caledonia at Do-Neva senior secondary school, another in Wallis and Futuna (location as yet undetermined) and a third in French Polynesia at Opunohu agricultural senior secondary school, where experimental farming, training and experience sharing will be conducted.

The results will be maximised at the Pacific level and brought up in regular regional discussions. The following is envisaged for New Caledonia:
