The emphasis on the fruit sectors will foster reforestation of 150 hectares in the southern region damaged by Hurricane Matthew and have efficient impacts on mitigating the negative effects of climate change and vagaries of the weather.
Mobilization of the local players involved in agriculture and the environment through the initiative (State, local authorities, cooperation, companies, NGOs, producers) will ensure that climate change considerations in the agricultural sector are factored in, that available resources are optimized, and that the interventions are harmonized. The community stakeholders’ meeting around the project’s actions will promote dialogue, thereby helping to reduce the existing political insecurity.
The action will also enable institutional strengthening and improved financial independence of the Association des producteurs et vendeurs de fruits du Sud (ASPVEFS), especially for the members of its women’s branch Solidarité Fanm, an implementing partner in the field, thereby improving the chances that the solutions put in place for ensuring the social and economic well-being of the supported populations will be lasting ones.
