Haiti - Environment : La Francophonie grants 260,000 euros for 79 projects of young Haitians
The Institute of La Francophonie for Sustainable Development (IFDD), a subsidiary body of the International Organization of La Francophonie (OIF), will finance 79 projects of young Haitians at the service of public governance of the environment and sustainable development in Haiti.

These excellent projects were selected by a jury made up of multidisciplinary experts and professionals, following a call for proposals. "IFDD is convinced that young people are the spearhead of growth that is inclusive, sustainable and resilient to climate change and natural disasters. We are delighted with the commitment and the spirit of innovation shown by young Haitians through these funded projects and hope that they will stimulate a favorable ecosystem for participation in the governance of sustainable development," said Cécile. Martin-Phipps, director of the IFDD.

The 259,500 euros financial support granted will make it possible to support :

  • 10 youth organizations committed to the protection of the environment, to structure the participation of young people within the framework of the national mechanisms of governance of sustainable development in Haiti for an amount of 10,000 euros each;
  • 4 media managed by young people for the dissemination of content in favor of citizenship, the environment and sustainable development for an amount of 10,000 euros each;
  • 65 self-employment projects in favor of environmental protection and sustainable development for an amount ranging from 500 to 3,000 euros each.

Set up within the framework of the Action "Objective 2030 - Support for the participation and action of Haitian youth in favor of the environment and sustainable development", financed by the Delegation of the European Union in Haiti, the financial mechanism will be supplemented by technical support measures for the beneficiaries.

This national approach is implemented by a multidisciplinary team within the OIF composed of the IFDD, the Youth, Sport and Citizenship Unit (UJSC) and the Regional Representation in the Caribbean and Latin America (REPCAL). This approach aims to support the participation of Haitian youth in a targeted manner in the public governance of sustainable development and also contributes to improving the employability of young people through non-formal education, vocational training, guidance, and support for innovation and entrepreneurship.

A second call for projects, which will aim to select 35 new entrepreneurship projects, will be organized in the summer of 2022
