iciHaiti - Environment : Spanish Monitoring Mission in La Selle Reserve
One of the fundamental objectives of this project, funded by the Spanish Agency for International Cooperation for Development (AECID) and OAPN, with the collaboration of UNESCO is to mitigate the effects of deforestation and loss of land in the region and increase the resilience of the biosphere reserve's ecosystems to the effects of climate change and promote sustainable development actions in its area of influence to improve quality of the life of the local population.
During his stay, MITECO reviewed the status of updates made to date and proposed new measures to improve the performance of works, increase project visibility and increase public awareness.
This pilot project has an initial duration of four years and is divided into two phases.
The first phase lasted two years and consisted of studies and preparatory work for a nursery of native plants.
The second phase, currently underway, continues reforestation in the central zone and the planting of carbon species in the buffer zone of the biosphere reserve.
