In order to strengthen the quality of the partnership that has always existed between the international organizations concerned to work with the OADEPROPAH-Haiti, the small Haitian farmers associations and farmers associations members of OADEPROPAH-Haiti, the Programming Framework by department or region, Haiti, the organization has set itself three priorities during the ten (15) year period of the regional programming cycle (2010-2025). It continues the efforts already initiated during the formulation of its program and projects already established for the research of equipment, equipment and financing, including the start-up of the Union Coopérative de Crédit Agricole and Rural d'Haiti (UNICAGRIH) with and for mission to work to improve the living conditions of vulnerable small farmers populations in the remote rural areas of Haiti.
The programs and projects have been developed with the involvement of all regional partners in rural areas of Haiti, national and international, in particular the Ministry of Agriculture, Natural Resources and Rural Development (MARNDR) and national and (Technical and financial partners in Haiti, civil society and the private sector) and several experts from the decentralized offices and various regional coordinating bodies of the Production of Haitian Peasants (OADEPROPAH-Haiti).
The three priorities emerging from the broad consultation process are described below. They are in line with the strategic framework and the comparative advantages of the Agricultural Development Organization for the Production of Haitian Farmers (OADEPROPAH-Haiti), the priorities of the farmers associations members of the OADEPROPAH-Haiti and the commitments of the UNICAGRIH to begin to set up an agricultural and rural credit branch in several rural sections in collaboration with local and regional authorities. On the one hand, they focus on strengthening the capacity of Haitian rural development associations directly linked to the mandate of the Agricultural Development Organization for the Production of Haitian Farmers (OADEPROPAH-Haiti), the Union of Haitian Peasants (UHP), the Peasant Women's Association and the Union Coopérative de Crédit Agricole and Rural d'Haiti (UNICAGRIH), and on the other, include all efforts to improve food and 3.5 million small Haitian peasants who live in filth and absolute poverty.
Following the adoption of the OADEPROPAH-Haiti work plan and action plan, the action plan will be translated into a biennial Work and Budget Plan and subsequently into an annual work plan in line with its financial capacity.
The Agricultural Development Organization for the Production of Haitian Farmers (OADEPROPAH-Haiti) proposes to tackle the priorities of the action plan 2012-2019 in a transversal way with a view to improving the living conditions of Smallholder farmers and herders in a climate risk management context.
Priority area 1: Strengthening the resilience of vulnerable populations in rural Haiti to the food and nutritional insecurity of rural pregnant women and children suffering from acute malnutrition.
Haiti's peasant populations face multiple risks (drought, floods, locust invasions, epizootic diseases, bush fires, etc.), often resulting in loss of livelihoods, degradation of natural resources and Worsening undernourishment and malnutrition among rural women and children.
To avoid and minimize the effects of these risks, the Program of the Agricultural Development Organization for the Production of Haitian Farmers (OADEPROPAH-Haiti) intends to strengthen the resilience of vulnerable populations, one of the priority areas of its actions. This will support peasant populations to sustainably conserve natural resources and livelihoods, anticipate risks and overcome food and nutritional crises.
The Peasants Organization Against Hunger and Poverty in Haiti (PCFP-Haiti) is a new peasant organization and a new multidisciplinary program that covers all the needs related to the capacity building and economic activities of the Haitian peasant organizations located in the zones Rural communities in Haiti.
Effect 1: Capacity to anticipate food crises and natural disasters will be strengthened in rural areas, particularly in the Greater South of Haiti and in areas where Hurricane Matthew has wreaked havoc or 95% of the peasant population begins to die of hunger.
Effect 2: The livelihood of vulnerable peasant populations will be preserved.
Effect 3: TThe nutritional status of households of farmers, fishermen, pastoralists and agro-pastoralists is improved because the peasant population continues to live in filth and abject poverty.
Priority area 2: Increase, diversification and valorization of agro-sylvo-pastoral and fisheries production in certain regions of Haiti where peasant populations are threatened by famine.
In Haiti, agriculture, livestock, fisheries and forest products are the main source of employment and income for the vast majority of the small Haitian farmer’s population. Therefore, the sustainable reduction of poverty and hunger in rural areas of Haiti will depend on progress in the agricultural and livestock sectors. The previous experiences of the Agricultural Development Organization for the Production of Haitian Farmers (OADEPROPAH-Haiti) and other partners show that it is possible to improve the living conditions and nutritional status of vulnerable households. The modernization and diversification of production systems and the creation of added value at the level of farmers.
For the period 2010-2017-2018 with the passage of the earthquake of 12 January 2010 and the passage of Hurricane Matthew on 4 October 2016, the Agricultural Development Organization for the Production of Haitian Peasants (OADEPROPAH-Haiti) Proposes to consolidate and extend the use of capitalized good practices and other innovations on a scale sufficient to significantly increase the productivity and incomes of farmers, herders, women farmers, fishermen and other users of forest resources whose forest cover, Haiti is less than 3% in some parts of Haiti.
Effect 1: The productivity of agro-sylvo-pastoral and fisheries production systems is increased in some regions of the country.
Effect 2: The incomes of small producers are not improved and the majority of the peasant population is threatened with famine.
Priority area 3: Creation of a policy and institutional environment favorable to agricultural development, food and nutrition security for the improvement of the living conditions of peasant populations Improving the resilience of peasant populations to climate change and other agro-climatic or socio-economic hazards, the transformation of agricultural production systems and the creation of added value at the farmer level involves an ongoing effort to mobilize resources, Political and economic institutions and public and private rural institutions with the capacity required for the implementation of programs and political dialogue in certain rural and urban areas for the establishment of urban agriculture. To this end, the Agricultural Development Organization for the Production of Haitian Farmers (OADEPROPAH-Haiti) intends to accompany associations and groups of women farmers in the field of training and technical support for the processing of fruits and vegetables in rural areas Of Haiti and the technical units of the OADEPROPAH-Haiti concerned for the creation of a political and institutional environment favorable to the implementation of the socio-economic development initiative that adapts to the real needs of the rural populations Of Haiti.
Strategies, programs and projects for agricultural development and food and nutrition security will be developed.
