Le présent document porte sur une étude de quatre chaînes de valeur en Haïti : le cacao, la noix de cajou, le fruit à pain et l'huile de ricin. L'étude s'inscrit dans le cadre du projet FOPRODER (2015-2020) de l'OIT (Organisation internationale du Travail), qui vise à fournir une formation professionnelle et promouvoir la résilience des chaînes de valeur au travers d'une collaboration avec les coopératives et les associations d'Haïti.

THE TIMOTHY SCHWARTZ ARCHIVE
Timothy Schwartz has conducted research and worked on the island of Hispaniola for 27 years. He wrote his Master’s thesis on the impact of emigration on sending communities in Haiti. His PhD dissertation encompassed subsistence strategies, child labor, and marriage patterns in rural Haiti. He lived and worked in Haiti for more than 14 years, including 15 months in a fishing community in a thatch roof hut with a Haitian family and five years in a small farming community.
His popular book, Travesty in Haiti, explores the humanitarian sector from an experiential, largely first person perspective. More recently the Great Haiti Humanitarian Aid Swindle uses his experiences during the 2010 Haiti earthquake relief effort as a launching point to investigate major humanitarian issues that aid agencies have dramatically exaggerated in pursuit of donations and that journalists and activist-scholars have echoed in pursuit of readership and academic tenure.
This document presents research on four value chains in Haiti: cacao, cashews, breadfruit and castor bean oil (ricin). The research was conducted in the context of the ILO project FOPRODER (2015-2020), that works through cooperatives and associations in Haiti to provide professional training and promote resiliency of value chains.
Haiti has a population of 10 million, translating to 2 million households (IHSI 2018). Based on estimate by DeGennaro et. al. (2016), at any given time the number of women in Haiti in need of treatment for breast cancer is 2,250. The expected number of new cases each year is 600. Yet, the number of women being treated in 2017 was only 1,175, less than half those suffering from the disease.
This document describes an evidence-based evaluation of the immediate and long-term impact of LEVE/USAID grants to the fishfarming entities Caribbean Harvest Foundation and Caribbean Harvest Social Enterprise, both hereon referred to jointly as CH. Specifically, the study was interested in evaluating the impact on the resiliency of participating households.
Given that some time had passed since the initial grant to Caribbean Harvest S.A. was made to increase production capacity, LEVE and Caribbean Harvest S.A. agreed to undertake an impact assessment that would go beyond simply capturing results, but more to measuring resiliency (as defined by the United States Agency for International Development) of the fish farmers. The initial grant was to increase both energy supply and the number of cages, which would lead to an overall increase in fish production by fish farmers.
This document is the third of three reports pertaining to a longitudinal evaluation of a local procurement school feeding pilot project in the Department of Nippes for the years 2015-2017. Until the end of 2017, the project was supported financially by the Government of Brazil (GoB). It is implemented with oversight and logistic expertise from WFP and the Haitian organization BND (Bureau de Nutrition et Developpement), the latter of which oversees quality and delivery of the food to the schools.
This document is the second of three reports pertaining to a longitudinal evaluation of a local procurement school feeding pilot project in the Department of Nippes for the years 2015-2017. The project is supported financially by the Government of Brazil (GoB) and implemented with WFP expertise. The project is supported logistically by the Haitian organization BND (Bureau de Nutrition et Developpement) which oversees quality and delivery of the food to the schools, and the Haitian non-governmental entity, ROPANIP (Reseau des Organisations des Producteurs/Productrices Agricoles de Nippes). The research is intended to examine the Local Purchasing and School Canteen Pilot Project with respect to the following issues,

Frequency Listing (Freq Listing) is a statistically robust methodology for identifying local leader- experts (notab) and ultimately humanitarian aid beneficiaries. It comes to us from anthropology and mathematical models for studying informal sector and non-literate cultures and rests on the premise of “Culture as Consensus.” More precisely, the premise is that,
Thirsting for sensational stories about hunger, suffering, and violence, the world’s most prestigious news agencies—the Associated Press (AP), Agence France-Presse (AFP), Reuters, CNN, CBS, The Guardian—have for decades uncritically repeated anything NGOs, UN agencies, or pseudo-researchers claim about Haiti. No vetting of data. No critical review.
