Description 

The project seeks to improve the economic well-being and reduce the vulnerability of approximately 4,200 rural households in five communes of Haiti’s Grand'Anse department. Women’s economic empowerment and their enhanced access to decision-making bodies are central to the project, as are the needs and aspirations of young people. Through its strategy to promote good agricultural practices and make them more accessible, the project is working to sustainably increase value added and promote climate change adaptation and resilience in the cacao, yam, cassava and gardening value chains, as well as to strengthen four farmers’ organizations. By using the value chains approach and facilitating inclusive markets, the project helps to match supply to demand in the input, research, financial services and agricultural product markets, while fostering dialogue among the actors involved. Project activities include: (1) optimizing the Creole garden, an agroforestry production system; (2) improving technical proficiency and agricultural productivity; (3) setting up or strengthening farmers’ organizations in order to help actively develop sectors; and (4) securing improved access to better adapted financial products and services.

Expected results 

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) value-added of the targeted agri-food value chains is increased, particularly for women and youth in the targeted regions, while respecting the environment; and (2) agri-food value chains targeted by the project are better adapted to climate change.

Results achieved 

Results achieved as of March 2022 include: (1) supported more than 2000 men and women farmers across five communes (Abricots, Anse-d’Hainault, Chambellan, Dame-Marie and Moron) in partnership with seven cocoa cooperatives and Solidarte Fanm Ayisyèn (SOFA); (2) 1237 women farmers adopted climate change adaptation practices; (3) the sale of a total of 71.55 tons of cocoa by the cooperatives; and (4) mobilized three financial institutions to provide access to a range of financial products and services adapted to a range of financial products. This includes services adapted to the needs of men and women producers who are members of different enterprises.
