Haiti to modernize its approach to agricultural health with grant from the IDB

The Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) has approved a $14 million grant to help the Government of Haiti reduce plant and livestock losses and increase exports by modernizing its agricultural health services. The Government of Haiti is matching the IDB’s pledge with $2 million of its own funds.

The Ministry of Agriculture, Natural Resources and Rural Development, through its Agricultural Health Unit, will invest in infrastructures, equipment, modernization of procedures, and capacity building, to improve key agricultural health services such as epidemiologic vigilance, diagnostic capacities, risk analysis, and pest and disease control, with a special effort to decentralize field services all across the country and improve interaction with producers and private sector professionals.
