Training of a Group of Haitian Beekeepers Aquin, Haiti
In collaboration with:
- The Ministère Wallon, Belgium de l’Apiculture et de la Ruralité
- Apiculture without borders of Belgium
- Association of beekeepers in the region of Aquin, (Southern Haiti)
- The Haitian Resource Development Foundation
The region of Aquin, located in the Southern area of Haiti, was always prosperous for beekeeping production. However, the environmental degradation brought about a sharp decrease of beekeeping activities. The objective of this project was to rehabilitate and maximize the number of trees through pollinization. The actual rate of pollinization in the area of Aquin was estimated by Professor Noel Michel to be very insufficient for pollinization in general.
