IDB will invest $42 million in Haiti to improve natural disaster mitigation

Haiti will improve watersheds management especially in rural areas, mitigating the risk of natural disasters associated with climate change with a $42 million grant from the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB). The grant will seek to increase capacities for adaptation to climate change and disaster risk management in the agriculture sector; improve water and sediment conservation in selected gullies of priority watersheds including the Centre-Artibonite Loop area; reduce risk of rural economic losses due to floods in targeted watersheds; and restore the educational capacity of the Faculty of Agronomy and Veterinary Medicine.
