Building Local Agricultural and Agro-Forestry Capacity in Duchity

To facilitate the development of a 20 year operational plan to support agricultural and agro-forestry production in Duchity, located in the department of Grand Anse in the south of the country. Forests without Borders staff, pcH staff and members of three cooperatives in Duchity were trained in how to develop agro-forestry systems for the short, medium, and long term. Training focused on plant and tree identification, nursery production techniques, plantation establishment, and tending and installing biogas generation systems. pcH staff gained the capacity to continue the process once this project ended. pcH staff and community members in Duchity also learned to train other trainers, disseminate knowledge and skills, and continue to build in-country professional agro-forestry capacity in Haiti.
