responds to the
requirements:
– quickly
restoring the
catchment
slopes of
Gonaïves

recovery
– limit the effects
of high
demographic
pressure on the
environment
Objectives of the project
Global: Contribute to setting up a
management plan of the “Quinte River”
catchment area and its affluents to avoid
future natural disasters similar to the
“Jeanne hurricane” in Gonaïves
Specific: Rehabilitate the extremely
fragile and weakened environment of
Gonaïves by implementing water and soil
conservation schemes using labour-based
techniques
Strategy and expected results of
the project
Rapid recovery interventions with longterm development approach
Environmental protection and economic
recovery
Preserve livelihoods of future generations
Water and soil conservation for productive
land use
Employment promotion through local
resource based techniques including
labour
Demonstration of a “Green Jobs” approach
Project achievements –
Social organisation capacity building
Seven professional
associations have
been created and
trained for the:
– contractors for the

– informed, sensitized, trained in organisational,
managerial and technical issues
– increase awareness to modify behaviour for
environmental issues
Regional technical departments (planning,

– participating in selection and planning process,
implementation, follow up, and in defining maintenance
strategies

(from March 2006 to December 2007)
Creation of 359.265 worker
days, equivalent to an average
of some 900 people employed
daily over a 20 months period
Total for wages: US$ 681.743
Plus payment in kind:
359.265 WFP food rations
(equivalent to US$ 679.690)

Phase I of the project demonstrated that the use of
local resource based techniques and community
contracting have been very crucial
Phase II is now
scaling up this
approach for similar
activities, but large
scale application still
needed to respond to
the huge needs of
local populations and
their government –
let’s work for more
investments!!!
