The Emergency Agricultural Livelihoods and Climate Resilience Project (EALCRP) being implemented is part of an overall development partner initiative to support medium and long-term recovery in Dominica following the passage of Hurricane Maria on September 18th, 2017.
The Government of Dominica with the financial support of the World Bank (US$25.0 million) has started the implementation of the project, a five-year period intervention.
The project contributes directly to Dominica’s National Agricultural Policy and Action Plan 2016–2025 that identified several key needs for agricultural development, including a more modernized agriculture sector, increased farm productivity, and overall climate resilience of the country’s agriculture and food systems.
It is designed to help farmers and fisher folk affected by Hurricane Maria restore their agriculture and fishing livelihoods and adopt climate resilient practices.
