HA-T1277 : Informing Growth and Development Policymaking in Haiti for the Post COVID-19 Recovery Period Through Research Initiatives

Project Status: Implementation

The objective of this technical cooperation (TC) is to fund research initiatives that can better inform policymaking in Haiti, especially in the context of the economic crisis that will result from the COVID-19 pandemic. This will be achieved by financing a series of research proposals submitted to the Fonds pour la Recherche et le Développement (FRD) of the Central Bank of Haiti (BRH). The FRD is a recently launched initiative that will fund applied research in Haiti in public policy management, economics, and finance that will contribute to the development and implementation of national policies related to growth and sustainable development. This TC will finance FRD research in the following topics: i) agriculture, natural resources, and climate change; and ii) fintech. These topics were selected due to their relevance to the Haitian economy (in terms of contributions to the GDP) and their potential to boost growth following the COVID-19 pandemic.
