In May 2015, a consortium led by the University of Florida received a five-year, $13.7 million award from the U.S. Agency for International Development to work on a wide array of research programs designed to build the capacity of Haitians to improve the country's agricultural sector.
The Feed the Future Haiti AREA project is hosting an International Conference on Agricultural Research and Innovation in Haiti. After five years, it's time for AREA researchers and AREA-sponsored Haitian graduates from U.S. universities to showcase their work on critical aspects of Haiti agriculture. The conference also is a forum to bring researchers, AREA partners and other potential collaborators together to identify opportunities for future research and/or extension activities.
March 10-11, 2020
The Karibe Conference Center in Pétionville, Haiti.
We solicited abstracts of research papers and presentations from Haitian researchers, graduates of AREA's master of science program and AREA project partners. The deadline has passed; more info and instructions.
Why should I attend?
Stay tuned: AREA will post more information as it becomes available.
