Abstract

French Abstract: L’appui financier actuel fourni à tout projet lié au climat ainsi qu'à l’énergie ne s’oriente qu’autour de trois des vingt-trois priorités climatiques nationales évoquées par le gouvernement: la sécurité alimentaire, l’énergie renouvelable, et la gestion intégrée des ressources en eau. La réduction des risques de catastrophes, indirectement liée au changement climatique, reçoit également des fonds importants. Puisque la planification des projets climatiques ne se focalise qu’autour de ces quatre priorités, peu de ressources financières ont été mises de côté pour les priorités suivantes: adaptation agricole, reboisement, agroforesterie, gestion côtière, renforcement des capacités institutionnelles, bioéconomie, protection des palétuviers, et gestion des déchets.

English 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.
