The IDB gives Haiti a $36 million grant for sustainable tourism on its southern coast

The Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) has approved a $36 million grant to foster tourism around Haitian historic, cultural and natural resources along the country’s southern coastline that will create tourism-related jobs for the region’s low-income residents. Given its inviting beaches, rich tropical landscape, unique cultural history as the world’s first black republic, and its proximity to the United States, Haiti has much to offer tourists, but they’re not likely to flock there in great numbers until they perceive that the environment is clean, excursion leaders are well-trained and equipped with safe equipment and vessels, and security is not a concern.
