Investing In Local Farmers To Build Food Sovereignty for Haiti

Almost half of all Haitians are going hungry, according to the Integrated Food Security Phase Classification, or IPC report, for the country. Organizations large and small are investing in local farmers, local economies, and agroecology so that Haitians can feed themselves in the long term.

“Almost 5 million Haitians are food insecure and require immediate assistance. That’s about half of the population,” Jean Martin Bauer, the country director of Haiti for the World Food Programme (WFP) tells Food Tank.
