Haiti - Agriculture : Beekeeping an alternative activity for fishermen in St-Jean du Sud
In order to allow fishermen living in the buffer zones of the mangrove ecosystems of St-Jean du Sud to have an alternative economic activity, the organization "Artisanal Fisheries and Integrated Development" (PADI) develops apiculture to Pointe Abacacou.

Beekeeping is one of the sectors chosen within the framework of the green economy concept because of its transversal importance for increasing the yield of agricultural exploitations and a better management of biodiversity.

PADI has organized two training sessions for the benefit of their members and other sectors in the area, with a view to an effective implementation of this sector within the fishermen's association of Point Abacou. Following these sessions, a multiplication apiary was set up with 10 colonies installed in the hives fabricated by the learners in the area.

This activity also resulted in the strengthening of the cabinetmaking in Pointe Abacou. Managed by 5 learners under the supervision of the administration of the Fishermen's Association of Pointe Abacou, a workshop for the manufacture of hives with movable frame has been established.

This initiative was carried out in collaboration with the International Labor Office (ILO), UN Environment Haiti and the Fishermen's Associations of the commune of Saint-Jean du sud and Port Salut.
