PACD Project

The Government of Papua New Guinea (GoPNG) has requested the World Bank (WB) for financing to enhance agricultural productivity and accelerate economic growth. The PNG Agricultural Commercialization and Diversification Project (PACD) is aimed at institutional reform and capacity building, crop diversification, climate resilience and supporting farmers to shift from subsistence to semi-commercial or commercial farming.

The design of PACD builds on the work completed by the World Bank funded Productive Partnerships in Agriculture Project (PPAP). PPAP focused on smallholder farmers in the coffee and cocoa sectors over several years to deliver support and extension services to rural areas, improve market responsiveness and sustainable production practices, establish productive partnerships and address key infrastructure bottleneck in targeted value chains. In part, PPAP established foundations for strong and sustainable industries and generated broad awareness of the benefits of having a collective approach to addressing bottlenecks in production and market access. PACD will build on this approach, as well as the practices and networks developed in PPAP, to build capacity at the local level and enable meaningful engagement with the private sector.

In total, PACD will support the following agricultural sectors:

  • Coffee
  • Cocoa
  • Livestock
  • Spices
  • Coconut
