Project ID 263JAM2000

This Project aims to fill existing gaps in Jamaica's database and tools to inform the design of strategies and programs that assist populations affected by the food, water and financing crises, and strengthen the farming ecosystem. It will provide policy recommendation and identification of key interventions for rural development, integrated water management for food production, poverty and farmers' exodus mitigation. It will furnish elements to understand the socio-economic impacts of the crisis on vulnerable groups, namely women farmers. It will enhance existing Government of Jamaica sex-disaggregated data collection and methodology on water management.
