Micronesia: Coconut Export Strategy
The Federated States of Micronesia (FSM) is a fifth largest producer of coconuts in the Pacific region. However, FSM is the smallest exporter of coconut products in the Pacific with negligible volumes of coconut oil being exported. Based on this situation analysis, the project aims to increase coconut exports through the design of a coconut export strategy that is endorsed, coherent, and comprehensive. Additionally, the project will support the establishment of a "strategic coconut partnership" building consensus between public and private stakeholders to grow the industry. Finally, the project will provide advisory support to selected stakeholders in strategy management techniques.
