New Contract Award in the Haiti
Landell Mills has been awarded a new EU funded contract to carry out a strategic assessment of aquaculture potential in Haiti.
We will be working closely with the Government and the private sector on the seven month project to make recommendations on aquaculture planning and development in the country. This is an important initiative as the sector has the potential to create and enhance rural livelihoods and income-earning opportunities, whilst improving national food security and reducing Haiti’s reliance on fish imports. However, there are a number of development challenges to overcome to make the sector sustainable. These include the lack of infrastructure and reliable public utilities that are a barrier to investment and the vast competition for resources following the January 2010 earthquake.
Our team comprises expertise in aquaculture, socio-economics and GIS/mapping. They will support the Department of Fisheries and Aquaculture in completing a field-survey reporting on current aquaculture activities and conduct an institutional analysis of potential for aquaculture production. The final analytical report will include spatial analysis with potential zoning for aquaculture development. We are scheduled to organise and lead a stakeholder feedback workshop in September where we will look to validate our analysis and recommendations.
The work is being commissioned by the ACP FISH II Programme Management Unit in Brussels. It aims to strengthen fisheries management in ACP countries, thus leading to poverty alleviation and improving food security.
