PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti —

Former U.S. President Bill Clinton is in Haiti with a delegation to promote investment in the Caribbean nation's agriculture sector.

Clinton is the United Nations' special envoy to Haiti. He arrived in the country Sunday and his two-day trip will include visits to an agriculture school, a coffee-processing plant and a brewery.

He is expected to announce several grants from his Clinton Foundation during his stay.

The trip is Clinton's second this year to Haiti. He visited the country in January to mark the third anniversary of the devastating earthquake that destroyed thousands of buildings and displaced more than 1 million people. Officials said 316,000 people died but some believe the death toll was much lower.
