PRESS RELEASE: SVG welcomes establishment of Parliamentary Front in Haiti to fight hunger


St Vincent and the Grenadines Minister of Agriculture Hon. Saboto Caesar has welcomed the July 4, 2017 establishment of a Parliamentary Front in Haiti, where leaders of all political affiliations have agreed to consolidate their efforts to support a single national fight against hunger.

In total, 74 Parliamentarians from diverse political parties voted for the Resolution, automatically becoming members.

Hon. Caesar is sub-coordinator for the Caribbean on the executive committee of Parliamentary Front against hunger in Latin America and the Caribbean. Caesar says it is the first time in the history of the fight against hunger in Haiti that an expressed single non-partisan approach has been adopted.

Minister Caesar said, “I believe this concentrated channeling of positive energy will be the game changer in Haiti’s long fight to ensure food security for all its citizens.”

In the aftermath of the 2016 passage of Hurricane Matthew Hon. Caesar led an Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) delegation to hurricane ravaged Haiti. The delegation included Sunita Daniel, Agriculture Consultant for the FAO to the OECS Commission. During that mission, the concept of the parliamentary front was suggested by Hon. Caesar.

The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) has worked with countries around the world to establish parliamentary fronts against hunger. The aim being for both government and opposition, through a bipartisan parliamentary motion, through a joint political will express a commitment to reduce hunger to zero.

Minister Caesar commended the remarkable efforts of FAO’s Zero Hunger Ambassador Guadalupe Valdes, a former member of the National Assembly in the Dominican Republic, for concluding the negotiations between the different political parties in a Haiti.

SVG Honorary Council to Haiti, Maurice Hogarth, provided valuable support by facilitating SVG’s assistance with the Haiti’s efforts to establish the Front.
