Dominica Agriculture: Cultivating Sustainable Growth

Agriculture has been a cornerstone of Dominica’s economy, contributing over 15% of its GDP and employing approximately a third of the workforce, according to 2022 statistics. Bananas are the primary crop for export, along with coconut, citrus fruits, and root vegetables. The government is working towards diversifying production to ensure the sector remains robust and sustainable.

Dominica’s agricultural sector is unique in that it produces around 80% of the Caribbean’s organic bananas on small farms using sustainable practices. This organic distinction has allowed Dominica to secure premium prices in international markets. However, agriculture across the Caribbean faces significant threats from climate change impacts such as stronger hurricanes and shifting rainfall patterns.

As a consulting firm specializing in rural development and climate resilience, Ruskin Felix Consulting (RFC) is well-equipped to support Dominica’s agricultural sector through these challenging times. Our expertise includes adaptation planning, organic certification, post-hurricane recovery, and facilitating climate-smart agriculture projects. By collaborating with Dominica’s Ministry of Agriculture and local farmers, we can strengthen organizational capacity, introduce new crops, and promote food security.

Diversifying production and building resilience to climate stresses is crucial for preserving agriculture’s vital role in livelihoods and cultural heritage for future generations. With RFC’s guidance and access to international partners, the industry is poised to not only endure but thrive through sustainable practices and innovation. This will enable Dominica to solidify agriculture at the heart of its economy and identity, ensuring its continued importance for generations to come.

In conclusion, Dominica’s agricultural sector is a vital contributor to the country’s economy and cultural heritage. By leveraging RFC’s expertise in rural development and climate resilience, the sector can adapt to the challenges posed by climate change and continue to play a central role in Dominica’s economic and social fabric. Through sustainable practices, innovation, and collaboration with local farmers and the government, Dominica’s agricultural sector can remain a cornerstone of the country’s identity and prosperity for generations to come.
