Fernando HiraldoI, the UNDP Resident Representative in Haiti welcomed the commitment of the Haitian Government which, through the Haiti Strategic Development Plan, the Nationally Determined Contribution and the National Policy on Climate Change has been able to endow the country of strategic tools that should contribute to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals. He took the opportunity to reiterate the support of the UNDP to the Haitian Government in its efforts to fight against global warming "I am confident that we all understood the urgency to act together and especially to act now !"

Wilfrid Trenard, Director General of the Ministry of Planning, drew attention to the fact that adaptation to climate change has definitely become an important component of planning at all levels. According to him, this National Policy is necessary to operationalize government orientations in the fight against the harmful effects of climate change of Haiti".

In his intervention Minister Jouthe, said he was aware of Haiti’s exposure to hydro-climatic risks, and reaffirmed the Government’s will to respond effectively to the challenges posed by climate change. According to him "the National Policy to fight climate change aims to put the country on the path of green growth, through the existence of key socio-economic sectors, resilient to adverse climatic conditions, generating new jobs and likely to contribute significantly to the eradication of poverty and hunger. Thus, they will be endowed with a great capacity to respond to adverse climatic conditions."

It should be recalled that the National Policy for the fight against Climate Change is intended to be an essential tool, setting the main national guidelines for various ambitious interventions and actions, both in terms of adaptation and mitigation. To this end, it must promote the taking into account of climate change in the various sectoral policies of the country and lay the solid bases of work between all the actors of national life.
