Haiti - Social : Towards a successful decentralization
From January 25 to 27, 2012, the Local Development Programme in Haiti (PDLH) has proceeded to the inauguration of five administrative complex in the town of Saint Michel de l’Attalaye, in Artibonite, in conjunction with the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) and its partners, the City Council and Oxfam Quebec.

The improvement of living standards of the Haitian population, including respect for human rights, education, employment, environment and energy, is one of the main objectives of PDLH. Its strategy of implementation is based on an integrated intervention addressing simultaneously several aspects of development, the local governance and socio-economic development.

Through fruit processing infrastructure, the support to the operation of the beekeeping sector, the modernization and optimization of the cane sugar industry, the construction of mini complexes for the CASECS and an imposing administrative complex, as well as rehabilitation of the water system, it is 2.7 million of dollars that have been invested in the commune of Saint Michel de l'Attalaye, directly benefiting about 5,000 people.

These positive results are organized around the three axes of intervention of PDLH : support to local development processes, institutional support targeted with state partners involved in local development, regional planning, the decentralization and the establishment of a range of training and research in local development.

Selon Francine Roy, Directrice du PDLH en Haïti : "The project facilitated the capacity building of local actors to take in charge and manage everything that regards their local development and the management of the service offer to their population as well as encourage participation in the economic and social life."
