iciHaiti - Canada : $15M aid to improve Emergency Relief
Haiti is one of the most vulnerable countries to natural disasters and climate change. The hurricane season of 2016 was particularly devastating for the country. Hurricane Matthew's recovery efforts are still ongoing, with the addition of damage caused by Hurricane Irma in 2017.

On behalf of the Minister Marie-Claude Bibeau, Minister of International Development and La Francophonie http://www.icihaiti.com/en/news-23591-icihaiti-canada-minister-marie-claude-bibeau-s-3rd-visit-to-haiti.html , Mr. Emmanuel Dubourg, Member of Parliament for the Federal District of Bourassa, Monday announced that Canada will contribute $15.15 million over 3 years to the United Nations Development Program to improve the management and response to natural disasters in Haiti.

Canada's contribution will strengthen the capacity of Haitian authorities to prepare and implement community recovery plans. This support will allow to better prioritize activities following a disaster, such as the restoration of infrastructures, the revival of basic services and the restoration of economic activities. It will also support recovery and reconstruction efforts in the most vulnerable communities and promote the inclusion and participation of women as socio-economic actors and agents of change. These communities will become more resilient and better prepared to natural disasters.
