Papua New Guinea National Food Security Policy (2016-2025)

This policy replaces the Papua New Guinea National Food Security Policy (NFSP) 2000-2010. The policy sets the medium to long-term direction and signals priority areas to focus resources (financial and human) to build sustainable food security for all Papua New Guineans. It provides a platform for joint planning to guide coherent programs and actions from all key stakeholders to strengthen food security in Papua New Guinea. A primary aim of the policy is to foster strong public-private partnerships an thus leverage agriculture’s potential to promote enhanced nutrition and health by bringing profitable smallholder farming, efficient food value chains, women’s income and child nutrition together. Successful implementation of the policy will contribute to advancing the nation towards the Vision 2050
of being a smart, wise, fair and happy society, and achieving the global Sustainable Development Goal 2 to end hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture.
