Haiti - Environment : Access to drinking water for all Haitians by 2030
Friday as part of the World Water Day, celebrated in Haiti around the theme "Tout moun dwe jwenn dlo", the Minister of the Environment, Joseph Jouthe, joined the National Directorate of Drinking Water and Sanitation (DINEPA), to sensitize everyone on the crucial issues related to water resources and the need for sustainable management, with a view to facilitating equitable access for all Haitians.

In this circumstance, Minister Jouthe noted the availability of water resources in Haiti stressing "The problem of the availability of water in the country, is neither a bad luck, nor a punishment loas or that of God is mostly the result of environmental degradation and watersheds accelerated by climate change."

However, Jouthe recognizes that the problem of water resources management requires an integrated approach that includes both State actors and the population. To this end, it promises to continue to work with DINEPA and the technical partners, with a view to the treatment of river basins and thus to increase their plant cover, concluding "Pou tout moun jwenn dlo fòk tout moun sansibilize, pou tout moun ka aji."

Guito Edouard, the Director General of DINEPA, pointed out that this year's theme is in line with the objectives of his institution, which is working hard to enable Haiti to achieve one of the goals of for Sustainable Development (SDG) : "Guarantee all Haitians access to drinking water by 2030."

At the same time, he acknowledges that much remains to be done, confident however, that armed with good will, his team will succeed in gradually filling the water needs of the urban populations and those of the most remote places of the country...

Let's mention that various activities (conferences, talks, guided tours) are planned throughout the country, through the Departmental Directions of the Environment and the Regional Offices of Drinking Water and Sanitation (OREPA). These activities are aimed specifically at schools, community organizations and local authorities.
