This report presents the findings of the field research conducted in Haiti, primarily in the Central Plateau region, that identified and evaluated the main actors, product flows and opportunities for hot peppers (piman or piman bouk in Creole) and groundnuts (pistach in Creole).
The objective of this report is to provide project PAER participants and implementing partners with an entry point for understanding the production and marketing strategies among the targeted beneficiaries, to detail programme activities and expected outputs and outcomes. There are some 700,000 women, men, and children in the Department of the North West and the commune of Anse Rouge.
This document is structured in three main parts. The rst part consists of an overview of the current coffee market at the international and national level as well as a description of the importance of agriculture and coffee in Haiti. The next two parts are a product of interviews and workshops with almost all actors of the coffee chain in southern Haiti; these parts include a description of the coffee chain for the region and its actors, constraints analysis and recommendations.
