The workshop was led by consultant Dr. Kénel Delusca who, in his interventions, presented the different stages of the work that take into account the challenges that Haiti is facing and the different axes that the country must prioritize in its adaptation actions.

Explaining that the PNA is made up of 340 adaptation actions at the national level, including 21 high priority actions which require an envelope of more than 980 million dollars over 9 years. These actions relate, among other things, to climate-smart agriculture, irrigation infrastructure, integrated water resource management, reforestation and agroforestry, watershed management, capacity building and disease prevention. .
