Haiti - Agriculture : FAO contributes to the repopulation of small goat farming and the treatment of diseases
The long period of drought that hit most of Haiti’s departments from 2019 to mid 2020 caused water scarcity and affected the availability of fodder, its access and its use for livestock.

During this period, most animals fed on waste with a high risk of contamination. Poor agro-pastoralists were also at risk of losing their livestock, a key source of income for many.

To increase the resilience of domestic animals to these disease risks, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) has supported the efforts of the Haitian Ministry of Agriculture through the training of 150 veterinary agents, the supply of medicines and the organization of mobile clinics which have made it possible to treat more than 25,000 sick animals in the departments of Grand'Anse, Nippes and North-West.

In addition to these veterinary clinics, FAO distributed 3,000 goats to 1,000 women heads of vulnerable households in the North-West (400 goats in the North-West and 600 in Grand'Anse) for the repopulation of their herds affected by the lack. water and fodder, or sold to cope with food insecurity.

It should be noted that these activities were financed by the United Nations Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF) and FAO own funds.
