Cul de Sac Irrigation and Agricultural Development Project

The objective of the project was to increase food production and income from cash crops through rehabilitation of irrigation systems, erosion control and technical assistance to farmers in the project area, who were mainly small-scale subsistence farmers. The project covered two zones in the River Blanche area of the Cul-de-Sac Plain, which is near the country’s capital city of Port-au-Prince.

In one of the two zones activities mainly included:

  • rehabilitating irrigation systems
  • introducing improved cultivation techniques

In the other zone, activities focused on:

  • flood control
  • reforestation and pasture development

Other donors and partners provided financing to support the project through technical assistance programmes, agricultural credit and an education programme.
