Haiti Hope: A Lesson in Partnership

We are pleased to invite you to celebrate and reflect upon the Haiti Hope Project.

The Haiti Hope Project, a five-year public-private partnership launched in 2010 among businesses, multilateral development institutions, the U.S. Government and nonprofits, was designed to create sustainable economic opportunities for Haitian mango farmers and their families and contribute to the long-term development and revitalization of the country’s agricultural sector.

The Inter-American Development Bank and its partners in the Haiti Hope Project, -- the Coca-Cola Company, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), and TechnoServe -- will be sharing their perspectives and lessons learned, and reflecting on the power of public-private partnerships as a vehicle for development.
