Haiti - Environment : The environment must be a priority of Government Martelly
"The Government of Michel Joseph Martelly must make of the environment a priority during the five years of its mandate." This is the main message of the Center for Reflection, Education and Debate (CRED) to the new government on the occasion of World Environment Day which takes place today June 5.

In an exclusive interview with Haitilibre, Jean-Laurent Dieudonné, the Secretary of Communication of CRED indicated that Haiti must have an environmental policy at the highest level including youth, key engine of development of country.

According to Jean-Laurent Dieudonné "the reconstruction of country will not be effective without an environmental policy", noting that the cholera epidemic that has gripped the country since November 2010 "is due in large part to the lack of environmental management by our authorities [...] During the past four years Haiti has been hit by several natural disasters and the international community is always the body that provides assistance to victims..."

CRED plans to pursue its goal. As part of a pilot project, which will be executed in the town of Jacmel during this month, 500 schoolchildren, students will be trained, among other of the themes related to civic education and the environment. After this training, an awareness campaign will be launched across schools and door to door in the community in order to develop in youth a sense of citizenship and patriotism to protect the environment that unhooks every day...

A youth committee will be established in order to make a plea near the local authorities to require relevant bodies to provide the city with a dump site, in order not to continue to use the river bank of Jacmel, as "dumping".

Given Haiti's vulnerability to hurricanes, the Secretary of Communication of CRED, invites the new Government to implement a good strategy to limit the damage during the hurricane season and urges the leaders of the country, to not fill their pockets with funds for the victims...

Let us recall that within the framework of the follow-up of the activity organized by the institution at the time of the Global Youth Service Day, from Friday 15 to Sunday, April 17, 2011, through three major cities, including the city of Jacmel, the Gonâve and Port-au-Prince. Awareness sessions and volunteer efforts have been made ​​in these major cities with the support of hundreds of young people, students, schoolchildren, association of small traders and members of youth organizations in these regions, a large cleaning operation of garbage and waste had been organized https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-2768-haiti-jacmel-young-volunteers-clean-up-the-iron-market.html at the Iron Market in Jacmel, a historic heritage.
