This project will deliver an innovative cohort of ‘food system analysts’ by building capacity among graduate students and young practitioners working across the food system in Indonesia, Samoa/Fiji and Vanuatu/Solomon Islands. This will equip them with the necessary knowledge and skills to design and implement research and interventions better targeted at developing resilient food systems. This is urgently needed in the region: In Indonesia the context will be the uncertain effects of rapid transformation and globalisation of rice supply chains on food security. In the Pacific the focus will be on identifying and developing resilient food system outcomes in the face of climate change and development challenges. Key field activities include (i) planning meetings with key stakeholders (Bogor Agricultural University (BAU), University of South Pacific (USP) and Pacific Community (SPC) to identify local case studies in preparation for (ii) Food Systems Resilience training in the three target regions. Training will integrate high-level conceptual understanding with practical hands-on application of new skills and methodologies to support locally developed Technical Vocational Education and Training (TVET) curricula. Opportunities for establishing an ongoing regional food systems teaching and learning consortium will be explored with project partners with a view to establishing ’Food systems networks’ in each area.
