Haiti - Environment : 2 years after, the reforestation is a priority
During 2011, UNDP and its partners launched watershed management, reforestation and renewable energy promotion initiatives. For example, five major projects on environmental protection were launched, including two with the Dominican Republic. In less than five months, 400 hectares were reforested and 2,200 square kilometres of protected areas have been identified in order to preserve biodiversity and enhance Haiti's natural heritage.
The two great challenges for environmental protection are to
include sustainable interventions and to ensure ongoing funding for these activities. That is why UNDP's efforts in 2011 focused on the development of national systems of environmental protection and on training in local capacities in the area of natural resource management and the creation of databases to facilitate decisionmaking.
UNDP efforts are added to those of several international and Haitian NGOs, particularly concerned with the protection of the environment in Haiti, and whose reforestation efforts are no less remarkable.
