Acceso Introduces Pivotal Survey on Food Security in Haiti

Acceso is proud to introduce, a pivotal survey on food security in Haiti. This was developed by Acceso in collaboration with Smallholder Farmers Alliance and with the support of various organizations—including Heifer International, ACTED, Food For the Poor, Clinton Foundation & more—and under the leadership of Haiti’s Ministry of Agriculture. We are setting a new standard for data collection to boost Haiti’s farming sector by connecting smallholder food production with the potential for greater local procurement for food distribution. If your organization is involved in food distribution, seed banks, or growing food with smallholder farmers, please complete this survey by July 31. Thank you for your participation!

The goals of the Haiti Food Survey are as follows:

1) to get precise data regarding current smallholder food production;
2) to learn exactly what it would take to significantly increase smallholder food production, and to quantify that potential increase on a crop-by-crop basis;
3) to obtain details about the operation of community seed banks connected to food production, and how they might be expanded;
4) to get detailed information about existing food distribution programs, including how much is currently purchased locally; and
5) to learn exactly what it would take to increase local procurement for food distribution programs, and to quantify that potential increase on a crop-by-crop basis.
