Maize: Adaptive And Innovative Solutions via Market Opportunities Using Local Investment (MAIS MOULIN) is increasing opportunities for farmers, especially women and youth in rural areas.
The 5-year, C$13 million project funded by Global Affairs Canada is focused on building capacity for maize and bean farmers. Papyrus is among the consortium of partners responsible for ensuring that farmers obtain increased exposure to competitive markets, learn techniques and best practices to increase yields and post-production quality and gain access to small grants to support innovative practices and community disaster resiliency.
Because of MAIS MOULIN Haitian farmers are becoming increasingly resilient in the face of climate change. The project teaches climate smart agriculture approaches, technologies and techniques as well as methods to reduce the community impact of natural disasters.
