CARDI to help get Haitian agriculture back on its feet

The Caribbean Agriculture and Research Development Institute (Cardi) will work towards boosting the Haitian agricultural sector, seriously weakened following the earthquake two years ago.  Donor funding from Caricom, Australia, the Common Fund for Commodities and the EU will make three Cardi projects possible . While project one will focus on re-vegetation, the second project will be intended to improve Caribbean production of roots and tuber crops through the introduction of more advanced technologies. The main objective of the third project will also target increased production, though through the use of protected agriculture.
Cardi’s executive director Dr. Arlington Chesney, recently explained that the Intitute aims to meet two main challenges: Revive agriculture,  but also assist in the development of a sustainable sector.
The three projects are being executed in collaboration with the Inter-American Institute for Co-operation on Agriculture, with support and active participation from Haiti’s Ministry of Agriculture, Natural Resources and Rural Development, said Cardi’s executive director Dr Arlington Chesney.
