Haiti - Agriculture : Towards a Haitian seed policy
This Tuesday 15 November at the Hotel Montana, the Ministry of Agriculture, Natural Resources and Rural Development (MARNDR) and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) are organizing a workshop of presentation of Haiti's seed policy framework document.

The seed policy document that will be submitted to the consideration of participants at this workshop is the fruit of a long process initiated by FAO for more than a year http://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-15716-haiti-agriculture-relaunch-of-the-seed-sub-sector-in-haiti.html http://www.icihaiti.com/en/news-15629-icihaiti-agriculture-strengthening-of-the-seed-sector-in-haiti.html in support of the Ministry's National Seed Service, whose main objective is to provide the country with a political and legal framework that will enable to set the rules of operation of sector in terms of seed production and marketing at the national level.

This is the first of its kind that will lay the foundations for the governance and development of the seed sector, which will ensure the revitalization of the agricultural sector and improve the food security of the Haitian population through the sustainable intensification of agricultural production.

In the post-Matthew context, the Ministry Seed Service and FAO work jointly to strengthen and coordinate interventions in the seed sector, which is a crucial sector for the sustainable recovery of agricultural production systems affected by Hurricane Matthew.

This framework document will provide mechanisms for coordination, monitoring and accompaniment of the production and marketing processes of seeds and vegetable planting material of the main crops of the country.

This workshop is part of the implementation of the project "Support to the revival of the seed sub-sector in Haiti", financed by the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) through the Program of Transfer of Agricultural Technologies to Small (PTTA) of the Ministry.
