DevLearn led a study to explore market system impacts in Fiji, Tonga and Vanuatu resulting from the Australian Government’s pilot for the resumption of the commercial importation of kava.
In addition to market system impacts, the study also examined the distribution of benefits for women and youth as well as impacts on the natural environment. The study identified barriers for Pacific Island exports to access the new market pathway and offered recommendations to the Australian Government to support the industry. In addition to a final report, DevLearn presented findings in the form of a webinar to Australian Government and Pacific Island stakeholders.
