Today is Earth Day

April 22, 2020

In the midst of the COVID19 pandemic, this EarthDay reminds us of the importance of preserving the soil and reforesting the environment in order to create the ideal conditions for agriculture that will help combat food insecurity in the most vulnerable communities.

To meet these challenges in Haiti, KANPE collaborates with its local partner Mouvement Paysan Papaya to work hand in hand with ODB-Organisation pour le développement de Baille Tourible, a local association of 275 farmers.

. Among our actions in the field:

  • Since 2017, more than 18,000 seedlings have been planted in the community.
  • This year, an experimental farm, producing among other fruit trees, was launched.

Since the beginning of the pandemic in Haiti, one of our top priorities, alongside illness preventive measures, has been the implementation of a food security plan for the inhabitants of the community, with particular support for farmers.

At Baille Tourible, through the agriculture pillar, KANPE supports the community in

  • the preservation and rehabilitation of natural resources (soil, water, vegetation) in the watersheds affected by erosion and threatened by desertification
  • the capacity building of organizations and their participation in the planning process and strategy management to promote food security and the fight against poverty.
