Recall that for Spanish cooperation, Haiti is considered a country of association, including in the group of priority countries. The priority sectors of Spanish cooperation in Haiti are water and sanitation. Spanish cooperation has focused its interventions in Port-au-Prince, and in the south-east of the country, notably in the city of Jacmel. The Fund for Water and Sanitation (FCAS) made an investment in Haiti of 119.79 million euros, estimating that these development programs will benefit more than 2 million people. Other important interventions have been in the areas of education, poverty alleviation, rural development, hunger, environment, democratic governance and culture.

The Spanish Agency for International Cooperation and Development (AECID) has also supported food security projects by supporting fisheries and agriculture in southeastern Haiti, improving the diet and access to the fish consumption of about 200,000 people.
