Programme Triennal de Relance Agricole 2013-2016

General information

Seeks to address the challenge of meeting the increasing food demand of the population, with domestic production; this in an environmental context strongly linked to a degraded and fragmented agrarian structure. It covers the period from 2013-2016 and the overall purpose of contributing to improving food security and economic growth in Haiti. To do this, it relies on four sub-programs: i) Sub-program of institutional strengthening and governance of the agricultural sector; ii) Sub-program to support family farming; iii) Sub-program for strengthening agriculture for commercial purposes; and iv) Sub-program of rural infrastructure development and basin management.
