4 I. Introduction 1. This Country Programming Framework (CPF) sets out three government priority areas to guide FAO partnership and support with the Government of Antigua and Barbuda bringing together innovative international best practices and global standards with national and regional expertise during four from 2016 to The CPF was prepared following consultation and agreement with representatives of Ministry of Tourism, Ministry of Education, Ministry of Health, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ministry of Environment, Ministry of Finance- Development Planning Unit, the Statistical Unit, The Ministry of Agriculture, Lands and Housing (Department of Forestry, Fisheries Division, Research Division), the Zero Hunger Challenge (ZHC) Initiative, the Gilbert Agricultural and Rural Development (GARD) Centre and the Antigua Public Utilities Authority (APUA) as well as Farmers and Farmers Groups. II. Country context and priorities 3. With a population of approximately 91,295, Antigua and Barbuda is currently ranked as a High Income Small Island Development State (SID). Antigua and Barbuda, like other countries in the Caribbean region, has a small open economy which is heavily dependent on regional and international markets. The National Economic and Social Transformation (NEST) Plan: represented the main policy document governing the conceptualization and implementation of interventions related to economic and social development in Antigua and Barbuda. It outlined the national development priorities and provides a framework for achieving fiscal stabilization in response to the impact of global economic developments during the period. It was the basis upon which Antigua and Barbuda benefited from debt relief, budget support and technical assistance from a number of bilateral creditors, regional and international institutions and development partners The strategic objectives the plan were to inform Government s policy decisions and guide the development of the Medium Term Strategic Development Plan (MTSDP). The MTSDP succeeds the NEST Plan and highlights the strategic development priority for the country for the period The National Poverty Reduction Strategy (NPRS), which was developed within the context of the broader NEST Plan, is also an important strategic document providing direction in the area of social transformation. The NPRS is anchored on five pillars: (i) growth and wealth creation; (ii) expansion of the prop-poor employment and income generating opportunities; (ii) modernization of social protection and increasing the resilience of the poor; (iv) good governance and public sector management; and (v) building resilience through environmental sustainability. The National Policy on Food and Nutrition Security represents a policy framework for food and nutrition security, and the elimination of hunger and poverty in Antigua and Barbuda Significantly, in 2013, the Government of Antigua and Barbuda became the first Caribbean country to undertake the Zero Hunger Challenge, an important approach to addressing food and nutrition security at the national level. With the support of FAO and other key development partners, and in alignment with the National Food and Nutrition Security Policy, the NPRS and the NEST Plan, Antigua and Barbuda embarked on a series of actions through the Zero Hunger Challenge Plan of Action to eliminate hunger and poverty in the country within two (2) years. Its strategy is to strengthen and diversify the agriculture sector, improve the nutrition and health status of the population, expand social protection, create employment and income generating opportunities for the poor, and ensure good governance of hunger and poverty programmes. The National Food Production Plan and the Backyard Gardening Programme fall within the Page 3 of 21

5 broader context of the Zero Hunger Challenge. determine its effectiveness and the next steps. The programme is now being evaluated to Other relevant strategic documents which are guiding national development include the National Physical Development Plan (NPDP) and National Environmental Management Strategy and Action Plan, Antigua and Barbuda s Agricultural Land Use Policy which cumulatively create an overarching framework for land use development. There is also a National Disaster Plan which was recently updated in With respect to agriculture, a National Agriculture Policy (2010) provides guidance to the development of the sector. Agriculture production focuses on the domestic market and makes a relatively small contribution to national GDP (approximate of GDP in 2014). Despite this, it is an important provider of domestic food and a significant part of rural livelihoods. The sector development will be guided over the next X years by an Agricultural Development Strategy which is currently being drafted. To be included in this strategy are plans to address the results of the recent land audit, the livestock development plan which is being formulated, and a plan for the development of pineapple production. 4. The CPF is crafted within the framework of the five Strategic Objectives of FAO, and FAO s three Regional Initiatives for Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) which target key areas of work 1) Hunger Free Latin America and the Caribbean (related mainly to SO1, SO3); 2) Family Farming and Rural Territorial Development (related mainly to SO3, SO5); and 3) Agricultural and Food Value Chain Development Improving Food and Feed Systems (related mainly to SO2, SO4). Further, the Caribbean Sub-region has developed a strategic plan with four main programme elements based on the last CPF process, the three Regional Initiatives and the five Strategic Objectives. These programme elements were approved at the meeting of Caribbean Ministers attending the FAO Regional Conference in May They are as follows: a. Zero Hunger Challenge Initiative b. Value Chain (Food and Feed Systems) Initiative and Small Scale/Family Farming c. Risk Management, Resilience and Territorial Development d. Public Policy and Governance The priority areas identified by the Antigua and Barbuda stakeholders for their new CPF for Antigua and Barbuda are clearly integrated into this framework and continue to build on the advances that have been made in the concluding CPF ( ). It is also consistent with the CARICOM Agriculture Policy, OECS Agriculture Policy and Strategic Plan, the Caribbean Regional Food and Nutrition Security Policy and Action Plan, the plan of Food and Nutrition Security and the Eradication of Hunger and Poverty of the CELAC, as well as the recently adopted Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of which at least 14 out of the 17 are related to FAO s work. III. FAO s contribution and expected results 5. Building on FAO s past experience in the country and based on consultation and agreement and taking into account the FAO strategic objectives, regional priorities and initiatives, and national, sub-regional and regional cooperation commitments, the following are the three priority areas that have been identified for collaboration between FAO and Antigua and Barbuda over the period : i. Food and Nutrition Security ii. Small scale Farming/Family Farming Page 4 of 21

6 iii. Natural Resource Management and Risk Reduction The selected priority areas are well aligned with the national development agenda, as reflected in both national level planning and sectoral plans of key ministry partners. In addressing these priorities, FAO s support can directly contribute providing a strategic approach to the national development agenda. The priority areas are also well aligned with the current focus of FAO work in the region and therefore will fully benefit from the programmes of work, available resources and capacity of the Organization to deliver effectively. Crossing cutting issues such as governance, gender, capacity building and data and information will be addressed as integral parts of the three priority areas. Currently Caribbean countries, including Antigua and Barbuda, are in the process of developing a United Nations Multi Country Sustainable Development Framework (UNMSDF) of assistance which will replace the United Nations Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF) as a mechanism for the UNCT delivery. It seeks to strengthen regional and national capacity for the implementation and monitoring of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Also, it supports the governments in developing appropriate mechanisms for tapping into the contributions of other actors in delivering shared national sustainable development priorities. The Common Multi-Country Assessment (CMCA), the first step in the preparation of the UNMSDF has been drafted. It provides an analysis of the main development challenges facing the Caribbean region within the context of the Post 2015 agenda and human rights commitments, the outcome of the third International Conference on Small Island Developing states (The Samoa Pathway) and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The CMCA will provide a foundation for the region to identify its strategic priorities and goals underpinned by national analysis and consultative processes. The SDGs and targets, as well as other internationally agreed goals, conventions and treaty obligations provide a framework for national planning and strategies. In this regard, the development of the CMCA is in the preliminary stages of identifying priority areas which will inform the UNMSDF. The most relevant priority areas to which FAO can contribute in Antigua and Barbuda are poverty and inequality, social inclusion and equality, gender equality and women s empowerment, nutrition, food security and sustainable agriculture, health and wellbeing, disaster risk reduction, climate change and variability, natural resources (terrestrial, coastal and marine resources and ecosystems) and labour markets, demographic shifts and decent work. Each of these aligns closely with the priority areas identified for the CPF and therefore provide opportunities for synergies and joint programming with other UN agencies in supporting the country in the achievement of its development objectives. Strategic partnerships with non-state actors are a crucial for achieving the CPF results. FAO considers partnership as a cross cutting area in its new Strategic Framework, and at a national level it means to mobilize other actors for join the best available knowledge and capacities to provide the most effective services in working toward common goals. FAO encourage include in CPF specify partners with academia and research institutions, civil society - including technical NGOs, producers organizations and cooperatives, and the private sector. Also to consider are UN agencies, funds and programmers, governments, international financial institutions (IFIs) and inter-governmental entities. 6. For each of the priority areas, support will focus on the following: Page 5 of 21

7 a. Food and Nutrition Security The agriculture sector in Antigua and Barbuda contributes significantly to the reduction of hunger and poverty as well as to one of the fundamental pillars of food and nutrition security that associated with economic growth and expansion of income generating opportunities. The long term viability of the sector and its ability to increase its contribution to the economy and food and nutrition security of Antigua and Barbuda will require a new thrust that promotes agriculture diversification and recognizes the importance of market development through value added processing and where feasible export trade as drivers for the development of the sector. Greater involvement of youth in the sector and sustained interventions such as Back Yard Gardening under the country s Zero Hunger Challenge Initiative will serve to enhance food production. The focus over the next four years will be to build on the successes of the Zero Hunger Challenge from the previous CPF period in the fight against against hunger, food insecurity, malnutrition, obesity and overweight. The continued implementation of the national Food and Nutrition Security (FNS) Action Plan will provide the main guidance. Agricultural diversification, nutrition education, strengthened governance in FNS and poverty reduction programmes will be emphasized. Also to be addressed are strategies for reducing food loss across key value chains, and improving the capacity of government to make better evidence-based decisions using an efficient data management system for agriculture. At the same time, expansion of social protection systems will incorporate pro-poor employment opportunities, youth entrepreneurship and school feeding programmes. b. Small scale Farming/Family Farming The agricultural sector is largely on subsistence farming or small scale commercial farming catering for the domestic market. Although approximately 79% for food consumed in Antigua and Barbuda being imported, small farmers play a critical role in the sustainable food systems of Antigua and Barbuda. Within the livestock sector, the structural weakness and other challenges need to be addressed if the sector, particularly the small ruminant sub-sector is to expand. Under this priority area, the focus will be to support farmers organizations by developing public purchasing policy and programmes which will link farmers to national institutions such as the school feeding programmes. Strategies to strengthen the inclusion and productivity of small livestock farmers will also be developed. Emphasis will also be placed on market access and value chain development. c. Natural Resource Management and Risk Reduction Within the framework of integrated land use planning and watershed management, the production of agricultural crops in combination with trees is an excellent conservation practice. While agroforestry is not new in Antigua and Barbuda, with a renewed effort to increase land utilization, agroforestry is being promoted. In Antigua and Barbuda, water resources are used for both domestic and agricultural purposes. However, the demand for water has drastically exceeded the available supply from ground and surface water sources. The country has also seen an increase in the influx of invasive species that threatens both the ecosystems and livelihoods. Such species include the Lion Fish, the Giant African Snail and Lethal Yellowing of Palms. There is a need to determine the impact of these invasive species and implement levels of redress. Further, like many Small Island Developing States, Antigua and Barbuda is vulnerable to the impact of climate change, particularly as it relates to drought and hurricane. Under this priority area, the FAO support will focus on sustainable agroforestry management, improved institutional capacity for water resource management and pest and disease management in the agricultural sector.

Therefore, the balance of USD 1,445,000 will need to be mobilized from other sources including through South-South Cooperation. This will be a challenging task which will require close collaboration between the national government and FAO at all levels including the subregional and regional offices. Available support from ongoing TCP projects (TCP/SLC/3502 (14VI/SLC/11 and GCP /RLA/208/VEN) with funds carried forward into 2016 will be utilized to support initiatives in the area of food and nutrition security. To support work related to natural resource management and climate change, funding will be mobilized through southsouth cooperation with Chile and Japan, and the Canadian Caribbean Disaster Risk Management Programme. Opportunities also exist through the GEF 6 indicative allocation to Antigua and Barbuda to support activities in this area. Support for initiatives related to data, information and statistics are expected to be available under CANADA project for Regional Advancement of Statistics in the Caribbean (PRASC). There is also the possibility for Antigua and Barbuda to act as a south-south partner (technical) in the future for the as the Zero Hunger Challenge Initiative is expanded in other countries within the Caribbean region. FAO will work closely with Government also to identify potential opportunities for resource mobilization that may include development of a Unilateral Trust Fund project for at least one area of work, and tri-partite arrangements which utilize FAO technical expert assistance for donor funded projects in the country. Other potential sources of mobilization that will be assessed include regional initiatives through entities such as PetroCaribe FNS initiative, Hugo Frias Chaves Fund and CELAC FNS initiative (south-south cooperation), CARICOM, CDB, EU, World Bank as well as south-south cooperation with Cuba, Brazil, Chile, Japan and joint programming with other UN agencies. Beyond funding mobilization, FAO can also support the country development agenda in the role of a neutral entity which can broker partnerships, bringing together several actors (civil society, private sector, public sector, and academia) to dialogue and develop strategic partnerships. This can facilitate improved governance and public policy that supports the achievement of national development goals. 8. The CPF will be pursued in partnerships as broad as possible and in alignment with the joint efforts of the Government of Antigua and Barbuda, and with the development partners for enhanced coordination and aid effectiveness. The Government of Antigua and Barbuda and FAO look forward to seeking collaboration and support from all concerned partners for the successful implementation of the CPF. 9. The Ministry of Agriculture, Lands, Fisheries and Barbuda Affairs will provide leadership on behalf of the government and will work jointly with the FAO to undertake the implementation and monitoring of the CPF. In addition, the Technical Management Advisory Committee (TMAC) which was established to oversee the implementation of the Zero Hunger Challenge will provide close and specific support for the coordination of the Food and Nutrition Security component of the CPF. The TMAC is comprised of technical representatives of the Ministries of Agriculture, Education, Health, Social Transformation, Finance, and development partners. With its inter-ministerial composition, it is well placed to provide critical coordinating support, and to ensure that the implementation of the CPF is contributing to the national development objectives. Other key ministries and their agencies, and Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) will participate in implementation committees specific to thematic areas. A yearly review of the CFP progress will be undertaken during an accountability meeting which will be jointly chaired by the FAO and the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Agriculture, Lands, Fisheries and Barbuda Affairs. The progress of the CPF will be measured against the CPF Results Matrix (Annex I). Revisions and adjustments as well as support to promote the achievement of the CPF will be discussed in this forum. Page 7 of 21

9 The CPF will be subjected to an external independent evaluation covering the entire programming cycle of the CPF. This evaluation will be undertaken at the end of the CPF cycle in close collaboration with national stakeholders. Its aim will be to assess the relevance, efficiency, effectiveness, impact and sustainability of FAO s contributions to national priorities. The findings of the evaluation will inform the development of the new CPF. 10. Major changes in country circumstances or context that may arise over the next four years can be addressed by a CPF revision as and when needed. Page 8 of 21

17 IV.1.2 Annex 2: UN-system linkage The decision has been taken to formulate a UN Multi-Country Sustainable Development Framework (UNMSDF) for the Region. For the purposes of this framework, the region is defined as the fourteen members of the Caribbean Community excluding Haiti, who are members of the United Nations 8. The United Nations Multi Country Sustainable Development Framework (UNMSDF) as the collective and integrated response of the UN system in the Caribbean. It seeks to strengthen regional and national capacity for the implementation and monitoring of the SDGs. Also, it supports the governments in developing appropriate mechanisms for tapping into the contributions of other actors in delivering shared national sustainable development priorities. The Common Multi-Country Assessment (CMCA) will be implemented to provide the basis for policy dialogue and design of UNMSDF and will analyse the main development challenges facing the Caribbean region within the context of the Post 2015 agenda and human rights commitments, the outcome of the third International Conference on Small Island Developing states (The Samoa Pathway) and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The CMCA will provide a foundation for the region to identify its strategic priorities and goals underpinned by national analysis and consultative processes. The proposed SDGs and targets, as well as other internationally agreed goals, conventions and treaty obligations provide a framework for national planning and strategies. The regional approach through the UNMSDF is expected to lighten the burden on national governments and prompt a more coherent response to regional and national challenges, needs and priorities. This approach is expected to lead to better strategic positioning to leverage regional resources, and serve as a resource mobilization framework while strengthening capacity to support implementation and monitoring. It will also increase UN integration, coordination and coherence. At the time of the development of this CPF, the CMCA is in the preliminary stages of drafting priorities and undertaking national stakeholder consultations to determine both regional and national priorities. The indicative priority areas which have been identified have strong alignment to the Sustainable Development Goals. They are as follows: 1. Economic Lagging Economic Growth Debt External Financing Infrastructure Labour Markets, Demographic Shifts and Decent Work Competitiveness, Science and Technology and Innovation 2. Social Poverty and inequality Social inclusion and equality Health and Well-being Education: access and quality Gender equality and women s empowerment Nutrition, food security and sustainable agriculture 3.
