Haiti

Haiti is a country at risk, with poverty, weak infrastructure, limited access to electricity, and extreme weather all putting its population in jeopardy. Haiti is taking a strong stance on climate change resilience and renewable energy solutions to improve lives and livelihoods.

INVESTING IN HAITI

Haiti is one of six Caribbean island nations participating in a regional PPCR program to enhance climate data and sharing for improved resilience and disaster risk management. Haiti has designed its own $25 million strategic plan for climate resilience under the PPCR to mainstream climate change into national development planning and to support measures to climate proof infrastructure, agriculture, and coastal cities in vulnerable target areas, as well as upgrade hydro-meteorological and climate services.

Haiti is also participating in the SREP, with an investment plan for $30 million to support on- and off-grid renewable energy projects in both urban and rural settings, tapping Haiti’s wind and solar potential to provide reliable electricity to households, businesses, and institutions.

TRANSFORMING VISION INTO ACTION

The CIF programmatic approach to investment planning and implementation brings strategic value to CIF recipient countries. Working through a transparent, country-led process, the CIF fosters trust and collaboration among government ministries, civil society, indigenous peoples, private sector, and the MDBs that implement CIF funding. Together, they translate Nationally Determined Contributions and other national development and climate strategies into an actionable CIF investment plan. Rather than one-off projects, the plan comprises long-term, sequenced investments that mutually reinforce each other and link to other critical activities, such as policy and regulatory reform and capacity building. Under national government leadership, CIF stakeholders continue to work together to implement the plan, continually assessing progress and sharing lessons learned along the way.
