7 “Staples that cannot be produced in Economic Quantities in Trinidad and Tobago” Supporters of Imports say that most of the staples we consume cannot be produced locally or cannot be produced in economic quantities. We want to take a critical look at those foods and use our best intelligence to see what can be grown and where possible develop strategies to achieve economic quantities. 1/22/2013CPATT Secretariat7

8 Identify the Optimum amount of foods identified in (6) above that can be produced in Trinidad and Tobago Work with U.W.I, U.T.T and other institutions of higher learning to achieve objective. 1/22/2013CPATT Secretariat8

9 Innovation of Food Production (FARM) Systems to meet National needs Maximize food production through farms that produce selected (specific) food for both economic and social profits. Create economies of scale from small farms through “crop” cooperatives (wheat, maize, barley etc). Review tree farm systems in the UEZ to see if multiple crop systems could offer better economic and conservation returns. 1/22/2013CPATT Secretariat9

10 Identify green based services and products that can be produced in T&T Solar Power Solar Panels Solar tubes Bio-digesters : direct delivery of household cooking gas Wind turbines Eco tourism 1/22/2013CPATT Secretariat10

11 Identify ways to optimize on the arable & non-arable land resources Build animal pens on non-arable lands – Consider multiple level pens Build green/shade houses on non-arable lands Produce food on arable lands Re-evaluate tree farms Re-evaluate oil reserves Legislate private land use – eg. Incentive for use and negative incentive for non-use. 1/22/2013CPATT Secretariat11

12 Resources required to produces optimal quantity of foods Human resources (identification, attracting, retaining) Water ( reservoirs, dams, irrigation systems, flood mitigation; Agricultural additives (make or buy decision) Climate Planning (production planning) Capital (identification, availability, prioritization) 1/22/2013CPATT Secretariat12

13 Legislation to Protect Food Production Legislate farm lands use – not land use policy Legislate percentage (%) of g.d.p to food production – not recurrent expenditure Legislate emergency food storage Change Cocoa and Coffee Industry Act - Purchase and Export of Cocoa. (Chapter 64:20, section 24) Protection against Praedial larceny 1/22/2013CPATT Secretariat13

14 Stabilize Food Prices Use Food Storage facilities to keep buffer stocks of selected produce and value added foods for the stabilization of prices and income’s of producers (immediate industry stimulus) and for securing Emergency Food for the population. 1/22/2013CPATT Secretariat14

15 Stabilize market and if necessary redesign market to encourage groups to participate Stabilize farm income (sustainable models). Introduce some type of Crop insurance. Plan annual production of commodities and manage growth. Increase the efficiency of agricultural resources. Consumer food subsidy. Stabilize consumer price at point of purchase with guarantees through UEZ operated stores nationwide. 1/22/2013CPATT Secretariat15

16 Increase Efficiency of Distribution System (new) Zone Stores/consumersUEZ processing Farm Gate 1/22/2013CPATT Secretariat16

17 Domestic Distribution Channel (Old) CHAOS 1/22/2013CPATT Secretariat17 FARMER Middleman 1 Wholesale Market Middleman2 Middleman 3 Farmer Roadside Stall Supermarkets Other roadside stalls Catering Companies Municipal Markets

18 Insure incentive compatibility to discourage strategic manipulation of the market Insure equitable distribution of profits amongst participants. – Capture value strategy to be employed in which value is created and farmers are compensated at each stage of value creation. – Savings earned through reduced production cost or innovation are passed on to consumers as discounts or rebates (possibly in the form of social programs) 1/22/2013CPATT Secretariat18

19 Build national confidence & encourage Nationals to invest and participate in organized food production Transparency throughout project Invite public discourse on scope of project Invite public investment in value-added processing and primary production Invite communities to invest in ZONE Stores Create economic space for Women and Community groups (suppliers to UEZ Stores) Stimulate activity amongst community associations ( WOMEN-YOUTH ) through innovation in cottage industry. Develop a strong gender policy for the UEZ. Work towards I.P.O. of UEZ Shares Invest heavily in Research and Development Be competitive (do things first and fast) 1/22/2013CPATT Secretariat19

20 UEZ Stores To capture value for producers and processors To support objective of annual price control at the point of purchase (savings for consumers) To insure that all consumers have the opportunity to benefit from reasonable cost produce To insure that quality guarantees to the market are preserved 1/22/2013CPATT Secretariat20

21 Identify the economics and social benefits of conservation, wildlife and green space and capture its value Eco tourism – low impact tourism intended to educate both local and foreign visitors. Protection of pollinators such as bees, birds, fish and frogs. Production of clean air, water, food and shelter at no or very little monetary cost. Efficient use of waste generated through human activity Balanced eco friendly approach to Tree Farming. Wildlife protection and propagation for human consumption. Strategies for oil reserve land Development of Public Parks in farm lands (people should see their food in production so that their confidence in the industry be developed) Flood abatement, irrigation and licensed recreation. 1/22/2013CPATT Secretariat21

22 Identify capital investment, exit ramps, breakeven point, revenue projection, cash cows, projects for social profit & economic profit 1/22/2013CPATT Secretariat22

23 Use of Profits Research and development – 40% – Grants and contracts – Endowments – Graduate Fellowships – Technology Savings - 20% – New investments – Disaster insurance etc…. Dividends, Social programs and employee bonus – 40% 1/22/2013CPATT Secretariat23

24 Succession Planning Top talent must be recruited and managed for the greater good of the UEZ. We will identify and develop potential successors by: – Matching company future needs with aspirations of individual employees – Help future leaders to understand that time, attention and skill will be invested in them for the purpose of career development – Challenge and reward talented employees to discourage exploration of opportunity elsewhere – Develop human resource choices, by identifying who is ready and by investing in what is necessary to make others ready. 1/22/2013CPATT Secretariat24

25 Preservation of Trust To earn trust we must curb corruption, we must not focus on the action’s of the individuals’ but on corrupt systems which lead to asset stripping. Our strategic approach is to develop IT to the point where all of the UEZ activities are made available in real time to all stakeholders. Expected result is the enabling of various stakeholders to obtain information of other stakeholders and their activities in the UEZ environment 1/22/2013CPATT Secretariat25

26 Operationalizing an Information- Centric Model Strategy Primary Objectives – Enable stakeholders to access high-quality UEZ information and services in real-time. – Unleash the power of data to spur development of food and nutritional security system. – Ensure that we begin our NEW economic journey with the right technology, services and knowledge. 1/22/2013CPATT Secretariat26

27 Information-Centric Model Benefits Delivery of better goods and robust services to customers at a low cost. Mobile devices will aid collaboration and help decision makers to use new information in the decision making process. State agencies could utilize real-time information in decision making. Increased confidence levels for domestic and international investors. Donors could track grant performance in real-time. Academics could study, simulate and make early system modification recommendations Information would aid transparency, transparency would push back against asset stripping. 1/22/2013CPATT Secretariat27
