Program of Sustainable Management of Limbé’s watershed (PAD-Nord) – North-Haïti

image001haitiIn a context of strong physical degradation and increasing poverty, the goal of this project is to manage and to valorize, on a long-term basis, Limbé’s watershed. It is important to take into account the development of farming sectors and the protection of natural resources (soil, water and biodiversity). Agroecological practices implemented by the families and organizations ensure performance to technical, economic and environmental plans.

Economic recovery and food safety, Port-Salut (phase 1) – South-Haiti

Agroecology and resilience against climate risks


At the end of September 2016, hurricane Matthew hit Haiti causing extensive damage on its southern part. Serious medium- and long-term food crises ensued as a result.

With the support of the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region and Léa Nature, Agrisud and its partner, Gradimirh, provided aid to Port-Salut, Saint-Jean du Sud and Roche-à-Bateau, the three most severely hit communities in Haiti.

The first phase entailed urgency actions in order to meet basic food needs for the afflicted families. Priority was given to the recovery of agricultural activities via the restoration of infrastructures and means of production.

The second phase will permit the recovery of the local economy. Producers will be encouraged to adopt agroecology and agroforestry practices for the better protection and management of the land. Agroecology offers a wide range of solutions which lead to reduced risks. Families become more resilient; they can actively manage their land and their environment and rebuild their lives in their own community.
