Natural Resource Management - Haiti

by Portal Web Editor last modified Jan 10, 2013 11:43 AM

Providing rural communities in Haiti with the economic incentives and knowledge to improve the management of critical watersheds and natural resources The U.S. Agency for International Development’s (USAID) Economic Development for a Sustainable Environment project (DEED) provides an alternative to the previous models of natural resource management (NRM) projects. DEED, a three-year project in Haiti, envisions a market-based approach that integrates improved management of lands and other natural resource assets with expanded enterprise and job opportunities in the production of suitable high-value crops, creating livelihood options for hillside farmers currently trapped in continued poverty. Linking the management of natural resources to sound conservation while simultaneously offering livelihood options will provide the essential stimulus for promoting sustainable watershed management. The project targets two watersheds to complete this work – Limbé in Haiti’s North Department and the river systems around Montrouis in Haiti’s West Department.
