Enhanced climate resilience in the Trois-Rivières region of Haiti through Integrated Flood Management

Enhanced climate resilience in the Trois-Rivières region of Haiti through Integrated Flood Management

Haiti is highly vulnerable to climate hazards due to its exposed location in the Caribbean Ocean. The country is severely impacted by flooding due to extreme weather events such as tropical storms and hurricanes. These events have caused significant damage and losses, including economic setbacks and destruction of lives and livelihoods. Climate-induced disasters put 59 per cent of Haitians that live below the national poverty line, with 24 per cent living in extreme poverty, at risk. 

Targeting the Trois-Rivières (TR) region, this project will enhance the resilience of communities by initiating a shift towards an integrated, climate-smart approach to land and water resources management. It will promote ecosystem-based flood management solutions, sustainable agricultural practices, and strengthened water governance frameworks. Through these interventions, the project is expected to reduce the number of households affected by extreme flood events by over 50 per cent. Furthermore, this initiative aims to scale up a transformative change in the interaction with, and respect for, natural resources by decision makers and communities in the TR watershed.
