This initiative entitled "Haiti Takes Root", to which joined Sean Parker (co-founder of Nasper and former President of Facebook) marks a major turning point in the fight against deforestation in Haiti and is part of the 21st Conference of the Parties of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change of 2015 (COP21 / CMP11) to be held in Paris from November 30 to 11 December 2015 in the context of a new international climate agreement.

In her speech, Ségolène Royal said that the signing of this agreement occur in the wake of multiple major natural hazards that Haiti has suffered in recent years, which accelerated soil erosion and deforestation.

The Parties welcomed the usual contribution of the organization of Sean Penn (J/P HRO) as well as this project that will bring together all public and private initiatives.

France will also provide its expertise in the framework of this project, through the National Forestry Office, the French Development Agency and technical coordination on the ground.
