iciHaiti - France : Municipal cooperation, about twenty active partnerships
Jean-Yves Le Drian, the Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs, welcomeed the holding in Port-au-Prince of 2nd Assises of decentralized Franco-Haitian cooperation, which will have in particular the objective of taking stock of the actions undertaken since the last held in 2009.

He recalled that the cooperation between French and Haitian local authorities started at the beginning of the 1990s and developed considerably after the earthquake in 2010. There are currently around 20 active partnerships involving 27 French local authorities. They cover five main areas of activity: the sustainable economy; education, social issues and research; environment, climate and energy; local governance and institutional support; culture and heritage. Assistance from French local authorities in support of Haiti amounted to more than €3,000,000 in 2016.

It should be noted that the the Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs actively supports these activities and has provided €253,000 in co-financing this year for eight decentralized French-Haitian cooperation projects (including a project to support the development of public youth policies between La Rochelle and Port-au-Prince and a project focusing on water and sanitation, electricity and local taxation between the Savoie departmental council and the town of Dessalines).
