Codex On-The-Job Training for Codex Contact Points from the South West Pacific
The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and World Health Organization (WHO) arranged on-the-job training and was held in Wellington, New Zealand, from 27 February to 2 March 2012. The visit was funded by the Codex Trust Fund with in-kind support from the New Zealand Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry. The training convened as part of the workplans of the FAO, Subregional Office for the Pacific, and the WHO Regional Office for the Western Pacific, and as an activity to contribute to the implementation of the FAO/WHO Regional Coordination Committee for North America and South West Pacific (CCNASWP) Strategic Plan. Six participants from three countries (Samoa, Solomon Islands and Vanuatu) participated in the training, which was led by the New Zealand Codex team.
