Description
Haiti is one of the poorest States in the word: more than half of the population lives below the poverty line. Although the majority of Haitians live on agriculture, this sector represents only a small percentage of the country's economy. A land reform has been approved several times, but was never implemented, leading to no real investment plans for this sector. In addition, the institutional context is characterized by the absence of Government, especially in rural areas, the weakness of civil society and the inadequacy of the local development strategies in regards to existing needs. To reduce the vulnerability of the rural population in dealing with the shock due to sudden climate change, it is essential to increase the capacity for action of civil society and to strengthen local authorities in the design and implementation of local development plans, as well asto increase resources to start up community-driven productive projects.
Objectives

The general objective is to improve food and nutrition security through the promotion of sustainable and resilient local development practices.

Activities
  • Training activities for 80 representatives of Local Authorities and  Civil Society Organizations on sustainable local development and organisation of workshops for the identification and processing of 3 plans for local community development;
  •  Selection and funding of 4 local community development projects through sub-granting  (1 project for each community);
  • Trainings on the sustainable use of products and production activities;
  • Dissemination and awareness activities in the field and in Italy.
