Rezo Oganizasyon Peyizan No Santa k Nodes (ROPNES)

ROPNES is a collective of peasant organizations in the North, Central Plateau and Northeast regions of Haiti that have been working together since January 2010 in order to amplify their efforts for change. Currently, there is no infrastructure for the transport and sale of local produce grown in the region, so ROPNES is working to empower local peasants to increase their food sovereignty and economic independence.
