Haiti - Environment : Repair and construction of fishing boats in St Jean du Sud
Since the passage of Hurricane Matthew in October 2016, UN Environment in partnership with the NGO Artisanal Fisheries and Integrated Development, has already promoted in the area of St Jean South / Abacou, the repair of 16 fishing boats and has built 4 others.

This initiative aims to allow fishermen whose boats have been damaged or destroyed, to go fishing on the high seas. Indeed, these sinners deprived of their boat, to meet their economic needs, fished in the immediate environments of the mangroves despite the low volume of fish caught. Some did not hesitate to cut the mangroves to make charcoal. This overexploitation of the marine area caused the deterioration of the mangrove ecosystem of the area.

Should be noted that this initiative is supported financially by the UN environment with a fund from the Government of Norway and by the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB).
