Regional - Reducing Conflicting Water Uses in the Artibonite River Basin through Development and Adoption of a Multi-focal Area Strategic Action Programme

The goal of the project is to ensure the sustainable development of the Artibonito watershed. The immediate objective of the project is to promote comprehensive, integrated ecosystem-based reforms, demonstrations and investments for the sustainable management of a strategic international watershed. It will achieve this by (i) assisting both countries to better understand the environmental concerns of the watershed and work collaboratively to address them at bi-national and local levels; (ii) building capacity at the local, institutional and systemic levels to utilise a more comprehensive approach for addressing transboundary water-related environmental concerns; and (iii) implementing on-the ground measures that address the priority transboundary environmental concerns and build upon other ongoing efforts.
