The strategic plan for Agriculture and Livestock Division (ALD) of the Kiribati Ministry of Environment, Land and Agricultural Development was developed in a participatory manner with input from all major stakeholders in the country. These stakeholders are representatives of various government ministries, including the Ministry of Internal and Social Affairs; the Ministry of Commerce, Industry and Cooperatives; the Ministry of Finance and Economic Development, Ministry of Health and Medical Services; mayors and councillors; non-governmental organisations; exporters of agricultural produce; women; youth; church groups; and selected farmers. Participatory rural appraisal tools were used to ensure the involvement of all stakeholders and to start building partnerships at the beginning of the process. This approach also ensured that the stakeholders shared a feeling of empowerment and ownership right from the planning phase, which should follow through to implementation of the work plans.
