Haiti: IDB Approves $25 Million Grant For Water Project


The Inter-American Development has approved a $25 million grant to fund a water management programme in Haiti’s Artibonite basin.

The programme could reduce the amount of agricultural damages each year by around 80 percent, along with increasing the productivity of rice yield by 30 percent, according to the IDB.

The grant will focus on mitigating losses of crops, livestock and infrastructure caused by flooding, focusing on two phases: financing an adequate water management infrastructure and strengthening the current framework of water resources governance. via Haiti: IDB Approves $25 Million Grant For Water Project
