Haiti - Agriculture : Deliverty of modern equipment to beekeepers of Grande'Anse
As part of the Action Against Desertification (ACD) project, funded by the European Union (EU) and implemented by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), which aims to contribute to reducing poverty, eliminating hunger and improving resilience to climate change in selected fragile ecosystems in Haiti; the Ministry of the Environment and the FAO have handed over modern apiculture equipment to 30 beekeepers in the communes of Bonbon and Abricots in Grand'Anse, in the presence of the officials of the town halls of these areas.

In her speech, Kelly Maxcia, Departmental Director of the Environment emphasized "It is important to strengthen the apiculture in these areas, given the key role that beekeeping plays in reforestation with forest and fruit species honey", adding "These modern beekeeping equipment will allow beekeepers not only to increase their production capacity but also to continue to practice their profession safely."

The 30 beneficiary beekeepers, 15 per commune, each received a batch of materials including a modern extractor with a capacity of 20 liters, a manual wax waffle maker, a yellow beekeeper jacket, a beekeeper's trousers, a modern smoker and a "Varroa Action Flash" to fight against Varroa, a parasitic mite of bees responsible for Varroosis a disease that decimates bees and reduces the production of honey

Kelly Maxcia, thanking FAO and the EU, welcomed the activities that ACD is currently doing on the ground, including the restoration of degraded lands and support to farmers.
