A Rapid Seed Assessment in the Southern Department of Haiti
This report summarizes the results from a rapid seed assessment in the South Department in Haiti between February 12 and March 1, 2010. The purpose of this assessment was to understand broadly the effects of the January 12 earthquake on seed security in the South Department, including related production and food security impacts.
The survey focused on immediate seed availability and household access for principal food security crops as well as basic production needs for improved food security and livelihoods, primarily for households affected by increased numbers of IDPs from Port-au-Prince.
The assessment collected information on seed supply and demand for five of the most common food security crops—bean, maize, sorghum, pigeon pea, and peanut. In addition, information was collected on the impact of Internally Displaced People (IDPs) on host communities and households.
