Following a meeting last May in which the Dominican Federation of Municipal Districts (Federación Dominicana de Distritos Municipales - FEDODIM) and the Association of Municipalities of the Haitian Border had agreed to reforest the communities most affected by deforestation in Haiti; an agreement will be signed at the Fedodim Congress in Punta Cana on October 5th.
