By Aaron Humes: Officers of the Resilient Rural Belize (RRB) program have been trained in the use of the Ministry of Agriculture’s Belize Agriculture Information Management System (BAIMS).
The program is used to keep records of Belize’s agricultural register – who our farmers are, where they are planting, what they are planting and what their needs are.
BAIMS has an online web portal and mobile app, both of which can be used to collect data in the field. There is also GPS capability to map farmer properties.
The RRB program, which is being implemented over a six-year period, aims to minimize the impacts of climatic and economic events on smallholder farmers while supporting sustainable market access for their produce. It is being implemented by the Government, through the Ministry of Economic Development and Investment, with financing from the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) and the Green Climate Fund (GCF), and counterpart funding from beneficiaries is aiming through the RRB program.
