Caribbean Export will seek to develop and/or strengthen the binational crafts/fashion/accessories/jewelry value chain. The Agency will ensure the development of a cartographic study of the binational value chain in order to be able to use tools useful to the sector serving to promote craftsmanship as a cultural heritage with the perspective of supplementing the tourist trade offer of the two countries.

General Objective

The general objective of this advisory mission will be to develop the cartographic study of the value chain of crafts in Haiti. This study should find out about the direct actors in the chain (producers, processors, wholesalers, retailers, etc.), indirect actors (suppliers of financial services, storage, transport, inputs, equipment, etc.), the specificities of Haitian crafts, production spaces, their stories, their folklore as well as the environment in which the chain is inscribed with regard to the actors and beneficiaries.

More specifically, this mapping should collect the following information with actions which should include:

Characterization of the elements that constitute the cultural heritage of Haitian craftsmanship.
The techniques and expressions of its products, the uniqueness of each production area, the social reality of artisans including the legal framework.

The search for the folkloric origins of the elements of Haitian craftsmanship
Link the different artisan expressions to Haitian folklore, natural resources and the tourist offer of each region of Haiti and the island.
