Haiti - NOTICE : Suspension of extraction of sand at the Morne Cabri
Faced with the danger represented by the anarchic exploitation of sand quarries at the Morne à Cabri and alarmed by the significant risk that this situation poses to the environment, the Ministry of the Environment, informs the general population and the sand quarry operators in particular, that as of January 15, 2018, sand mining is prohibited in the perimeter of the morne à Cabri.

In addition to the need to preserve the living environment of the population, this measure is taken in the concern to protect the National Road # 3 and the high voltage pylons that supply the capital of Port-au-Prince with electricity.

Pending the holding of a meeting between the Ministry of the Environment, the Ministry of Public Works, Bureau of Mines and Energy with the sand operators for the definition of a credible alternative, the Direction of the Agency National Protected Areas (ANAP) has been instructed to use the Protected Areas Security Brigade (BSAP) to protect the Morne à Cabri and this in close cooperation with the judicial authorities.

The Territorial Communities, in particular the Mayors and the CASECs, are invited to lend their full support to the application of this decision.
