Impact Assessment for the Livelihood of Fishfarmers

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, quoting from the RFP, The purpose of this short-term consultancy is to evaluate the immediate and longer-term impact of LEVE’s intervention with CH on the livelihoods of the 50 fish farmers who received cages, and their families. LEVE and CH are ultimately interested to know what impact, if any, this intervention has had upon the resiliency of the fish farmer, and their ability to sustainably continue this economic activity to the benefit of their family, their community and ultimately the Haitian economy.

Baseline, Value chains, & Notab information network

Before presenting data and analysis, it should be understood that this report examines life in the rural Grand Anse from the perspective of resiliency and adaptation. People living in the region are adapted to 200-plus years of natural and manmade calamities. Natural calamities include droughts, floods, hurricanes, and earthquakes. Manmade calamities include warfare, political turmoil, corruption, restricted traded, protracted international embargoes, and a State that more often than not has taxed the population through heavy tariffs while making scant to no investment in infrastructure or services. In adapting to such events, farmers in the Grand Anse have clung to zero-risk, zero-investment livelihood strategies. As seen in this report, almost all critical productive technologies on which farmers in the region depend can be produced locally, such as ropes, canoes and row boats, and virtually anything thing associated with livestock. The vast majority of people depend on their own two feet for transport, they do not use imported fertilizers or pesticides for crops, they do not feed processed foods or supplements to livestock, and most of them do not even use vaccines on their animals. Those imported productive technologies critical to survival are no more complex than machetes and hoes. Water pumps and plows are for the most part irrelevant in the Grand Anse. No farmer would or does depend on them for survival.

Evaluation of Local Purchasing and School Canteen Pilot Project in Petite Riviere de Nippes. Part 3

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. Also involved is the Haitian non- governmental entity ROPANIP (Reseau des Organisations des Producteurs/Productrices Agricoles de Nippes), which coordinates purchases from and support to farmer associations.1 The research is intended to examine the Local Purchasing and School Canteen Pilot Project with respect to the following issues…

Frequency Listing Report

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, a) any given claim by someone who shares knowledge of a cultural-specific category or domain with others has a certain probability of being true, which gives way to the corollary, b) the more people who share cultural knowledge of that domain and support the claim, the more likely the claim is true.
