Haiti - Agriculture : Agriculture Sectoral Tables
In order to ensure better coordination between public institutions, NGOs working in the agriculture sector and local authorities, the Ministry of Agriculture for more than six months has revived across the country a series of meetings named "Agriculture Sectoral Tables". The Department intends through these meetings guide the activities of these actors in the direction of the development policy defined for the country by the government.

Numerous are the NGOs in the country working in the agricultural sector. Ministry officials noted a lack of consistency in their actions. To put more order in the operations of these NGOs, they invite all of them, as well as town hall officials and farmers' organizations and of producers of the department, to gather once a month around the Departmental Director of the Ministry.

By ensuring a better coordination of stakeholders,the Agriculture Sectoral Tables will :

  • allow NGOs to direct their activities in line with the development policy defined for the country by the government ;
  • avoid duplication of activities ;
  • help local authorities (Town Hall, CASEC) to participate in decisions concerning interventions in their area ;
  • allow to obtain a better performance of human resources, financial and technical.

In this perspective, the Ministry of Agriculture has released a series of documents outlining its agricultural policy that should guide all stakeholders.
