The 4th Briefing draws from the Brussels Briefing on the topic ofFarmer-driven research to improve food and nutrition security which was held on 14th of November. More than 100 participants discussed successes and shared lessons from the farmer-led agricultural research, by emphasizing its impact on the livelihood of the people and its key role to improve food and nutrition security.

The national briefings integrate the topics of the Brussels Briefings, which are of interest for Haiti. They look at a particular topic through the lens of a national case, and raise awareness on topical issues related to agriculture in Haiti.
They are entirely organised at the local level, by PROMODEV, the Ministry of Agriculture and other development partners. Farmers organisations from various regions of the country are represented in the discussion, and a special emphasis is put on involving the media in the discussions as a way to inform them on key priorities for rural development.
