Haiti - Environment : The European Union welcomes the ratification by Haiti of the Paris Agreement
Haiti's ratification of the Paris agreement, signed at the COP21 in December 2015 http://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-16066-haiti-cop21-the-fruits-have-finally-found-the-promise-of-flowers-dixit-dominique-pierre.html , illustrates the determination of the Haitian State to make every effort to remain one of the least emitting countries of greenhouse gases in the world. This ratification will enable the Haitian State to respect the commitments made in Marrakech at COP 22 (November 2016), to strengthen its status as a member of the agreement and thus to have access to the Green Fund, whose overall budget is expected to reach $ 100 billion by 2020.
The Paris agreement signed at the COP21 in December 2015 has now been ratified by nearly 130 states. The time is now for implementation.
Let's recall that the European Union is financing with an envelope of more than 354 million gourdes (± 6 million Euros) the program of Support to the taking into account of climate change in the national development of Haiti (Program AP3C). Part of this funding allows the Haitian government to strengthen climate governance by supporting the Ministry of the Environment, in particular the Climate Change Directorate and the National Environmental Assessment Bureau, in the development of the National Policy on Climate Change and in monitoring the work of the National Council on Climate Change.
