Recent study on Characterisation of Family Farms in the Caribbean

Dear SALSA group participants, for your attention attached you find a study on Characterisation of Family Agriculture that covers the countries of Guyana (a mainland territory), Haiti (due to its unique socio-economic situation), Jamaica (a large Greater Antilles territory), and St. Vincent and the Grenadines (a small Lesser Antilles territory), addressing each of two key issues: the characteristics of family farms in the country and the stakeholder perspectives of family farms. The publication of this document, by the Inter-American Institute for Cooperation on Agriculture (IICA), seeks to promote a critical analysis of the conditions of family agriculture in Caribbean countries; a reflection on possible scenarios that allow its strengthening and sustainable development; and a debate on the design and implementation of public policies that can generate the conditions so that these scenarios become successful and sustainable realities.
