Haiti - Social : Drinking water in Port-au-Prince would require nearly $1 billion
On the occasion of World Water Day (March 22), the Interamerican Development Bank (IDB) in partnership with the Spanish Agency for International Cooperation and Development (AECID $65 million) and the Organization of Petroleum Exporting countries (OPEC $6.6 million) announced the making available for Haiti of $160 million to contribute to the fight against the lack of access to drinking water in the country.

An assistance certainly appreciated, but not enough to end the lack of access to clean water in Port-au-Prince according to Benito Dumay, Director General of the National Directorate of Water Supply and Sanitation (DINEPA) who said that the current daily capacity of water supply for the capital is 100,000 m3 while the needs exceed the 300,000 m3.

To permanently satisfy the demand of the population of Port-au-Prince, DINEPA needs 800 to $ 900 million to complete the necessary infrastructure, says Benito Dumay based on internal studies.
