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.

Results & Indicators

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.

The project will directly help improve the living conditions of 7,000 producers (more than 35,000 indirectly) 60% of whom are women and 40% are young people working in the cocoa and yam value chains, as well as cassava and market gardening. AVETI will help to sustainably increase value-added and promote adaptation and resilience to climate change by strengthening the management and operational capacity – services to members – of four organizations or groups of farmers’ associations (FO) and of their individual or associate members: Réseau des organisations de producteurs agricoles de la Grand’Anse (ROPAGA), Organisation pour le développement de la filière cacao dans la Grand’Anse (ODEFCAGA), Coopérative Agricole Union Développement (CAUD), Konbit Plantè pou Developman Dumoi (KPD). This professionalizing of services will result in better access to innovative inputs and technologies, production pathways taking climate change into account, harvesting and post-harvest services, including marketing, and to adequate funding.
