Building the evidence base on the agricultural nutrition nexus: Haiti
This study was carried out in the framework of collaboration with CTA to undertake a rapid scan of policies, programmes, and interventions related to the agriculture-nutrition nexus. The Haitian agri-food system faces a variety of challenges, including strong pressure on farmland with small holdings of 0.62 ha on average, limited access to irrigation water, inputs and credit, and a lack of transportation, storage and processing facilities. To improve food and nutrition security more investment in agriculture and nutrition services are needed. Farmers particularly need greater access to credits, agricultural insurance, agricultural extension and education, irrigation water, and inputs (seeds, pesticides and fertilisers).
