The 4th Haiti Briefing on Farmer-driven research

As part of the decentralisation of the Brussels Development Briefings and support to most vulnerable countries, the 4th national Briefing on Farmer-driven research to improve food and nutrition security in Haiti’ was held on Wednesday, 11th December 2013, in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. More than 250 participants attended this event.
This followed the first three briefings which took place in Haiti – “The development of aquaculture and fishing, an economic opportunity for Haiti” on 26th September 2013, “Valorisation of local products as an alternative for food security” on 2nd July 2013  and “Building resilience in the face of crisis and shocks” on 27th February 2013.
The 4th Haiti Briefing drew from the Brussels Briefing on the topic of Farmer-driven research to improve food and nutrition security’ which was held on 14th of November, at the Jacques Delors Building (in Brussels). More than 100 participants discussed successes and shared lessons from the farmer-led agricultural research, by emphasizing its impact on the livelihood of the people and its key role to improve food and nutrition security. To read more about it go here.
The national briefings integrate the topics of  the Brussels Briefings, which are of interest for Haiti. They look at a particular topic through the lens of a national case, and raise awareness on topical issues related to agriculture in Haiti.
They are fully organized at the local level, by PROMODEV, the Ministry of Agriculture and other development partners. Farmer’s organisations from various regions of the country are represented in the discussion, and a special emphasis is put on involving the media in the discussions as a way to inform them on key priorities for rural development.
