As part of the decentralisation of the Brussels Development Briefings and support to most vulnerable countries, Haiti runs the 3nd national Briefing on “The development of aquaculture and fishing, an economic opportunity for Haiti” on Thursday, 26th September 2013, in Port-au-Prince, Haiti.
This follows the first two briefings which took place in Haiti – “Building resilience in the face of crisis and shocks” on 27th February 2013 and “Valorisation of local products as an alternative for food security” on 2nd July 2013.
The national briefings integrate the topics of the Brussels Briefings, which are of interest for Haiti. They look at a particular topic through the lens of a national case, and raise awareness on topical issues related to agriculture in Haiti.
They are fully organized at the local level, by PROMODEV, the Ministry of Agriculture and other development partners. Farmer’s organisations from various regions of the country are represented in the discussion, and a special emphasis is put on involving the media in the discussions as a way to inform them on key priorities for rural development.
The 3rd Haiti Briefing draws from the Brussels Briefing on the topic of Fish-farming: The new driver of the blue economy which was held on 3rd of July, at the ACP Secretariat in Brussels. To read more about it go here.
