Haiti - Security : Seismic risks, mission of American experts in Haiti
An expert mission of the Institute of Geological Studies of the USA (USGS) has been in Haiti since October 22nd and ends on Friday the 26th. As part of the collaboration of the USGS with the Haitian institutions involved in seismic risk management, this mission aims to identify their needs in terms of raising the awareness of the population and schools in particular on the measures to be taken in the event of an earthquake.

During his stay, the American delegation accompanied by the staff of the Technical Unit of Seismology of the Office of Mines and Energy (UTS/BME) went to the Ministry of the Environment, where it met Dwinel Bélizaire the Director of the National Observatory of Environment and Vulnerability (ONEV). On this occasion, the Mission Expert-Coordinator Susan Hough spoke on the development of a national awareness program to reduce loss of life and property during an earthquake. This program will be funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID - Haiti) and will also focus on building the capacity of the national institutions involved.

For his part, Dwinel Bélizaire presented to the Experts, an inventory of the situation of the national network of seismic monitoring established across the country https://www.icihaiti.com/en/news-23662-icihaiti-environmentthe-onev-a-scientific-monitoring-network-of-natural-hazards.html . He took the opportunity to announce the strengthening of the network soon by the installation of 2 other seismological stations Very Small Aperture Terminal (VSAT).

This reinforcement operation will enable the Ministry of the Environment to bring the national network of monitoring to 12 seismological stations which will be interconnected and which will automatically ensure the transmission of GURALP broadband data, in installation in Petite-Rivière de l'Artibonite, Cayes, La Gonave, Anse-a-Pitre, Anse-A-Veau etc..., he concluded.
