Delegation from Alliance agricole internationale visits Haiti
SOCODEVI Executive Director Richard Lacasse took part in June in a project results monitoring trip led by Alliance agricole internationale (AAI) to Haiti. CECI Executive Director Claudia Black and UPA DI Secretary General André Beaudoin also were part of the delegation.
AAI is working in the northern and northeastern regions of Haiti under an assignment from the Ministry of Agriculture, Natural Resources and Rural Development (MARNDR) aimed at improving agricultural productivity and the services delivered to farming families. Thanks to AAI assistance, thousands of women and men farmers mainly in the coffee, cocoa and fruit sectors gained access to technical and financial support to help improve yields, crop quality and marketing. During this mission, positive progress in the field was observed and meetings were held with those working on this MARNDR assignment at the Inter-American Development Bank and the World Bank.
