Abstract

Current financial assistance for energy and climate-related projects is concentrated in just three of Haiti’s twenty-three articulated priorities for combatting climate change: food security, renewables, and integrated water resource management. In addition, disaster risk reduction receives significant funding, which is indirectly related to climate change. With the concentration of resources and projects in these four categories, many of the Haitian priorities appear to be relatively neglected, including agricultural adaptation, afforestation, agroforestry, coastal-zone management, capacity building, development of a bio-economy, institutional strengthening, mangrove protection, and waste management.

Keywords: Haiti, Climate Finance, Food Security, Renewables, Water Resource Management, Climate Risk Management, Caribbean, Adaptation
