The objective of this project is to increase the resilience of local commune by protecting, improving risk and disaster management system in South-East Haiti and in the Enriquillo region in the Dominican Republic. On January 12, 2010, a devastating earthquake hit Haiti, the poorest country in the Western hemisphere. The earthquake affected millions of civilians. This project aims to enhance resilience of local communities in the border area. The project aims at communities in Anse-a-Pitre (South-East Haiti) and Western Pedernales (Dominican Republic).
The goal of the project is building a risk disaster management system by bringing together key institutional actors and stimulating joint coordination in the Department of South-East Haiti and in the Enriquillo region in the Dominican Republic.
The project is a cooperation between the Alianza por la Solidaridad, Instituto Dominicano de Desarrallo, Haiti Ministery of Internal Affairs, European Commission and the Netherlands Red Cross.
