Haiti - Center and Artibonite Regional Development Project (English)

The development objectives of the Center and Artibonite Regional Development Project for Haiti are to: (a) support the development of the Centre Artibonite Loop (CAL) region, primarily by enhancing all-weather connectivity and logistics for producers, and the region's resilience to climate change; and (b) support the recipient's capacity to respond promptly and effectively to an eligible emergency, as needed. The project comprises of five components. The first component, enhancing logistics, transport connectivity, and climate resilience aims to link the CAL region to economic growth poles outside the region, and to improve the internal connectivity of the CAL, by increasing all-weather access to agricultural production areas, markets and services, and by increasing the rural access index and the macro-resilience of the road network to natural events and effects of climate change. It has following four sub-components: (i) improving the structuring road network; (ii) improving the rural road network; (iii) strengthening road maintenance capacity and mechanisms at the local level; and (iv) supporting the application of best practices addressing the issue of climate resilience. The second component will improve the infrastructure and management capacity of key selected urban markets (2 to 4) and rural markets (4 to 8) to link agricultural producers with the roads provided under first component. It comprises of following two sub-components: (i) urban markets and associated facilities; and (ii) rural markets. The third component, supporting the development of regional knowledge, planning capacity, and local participation aims to support the Government of Haiti (GoH), municipalities, and local stakeholders to effectively plan and make consensual decisions. It has following two sub-components: (i) improving regional knowledge; and (ii) supporting the development of regional planning capacity and local participation. The fourth component, contingent emergency response include triggers and conditions for the use of funds, included in most investment projects in Haiti in keeping with the recommendations of the 2011 World Development Report (WDR) on conflict, security and development, and with the operational experience acquired in Haiti since the 2010 earthquake. The fifth component, project implementation, monitoring and evaluation will finance the activities of the implementing agency for the project: the unite technique d'execution (UTE), an existing project implementation unit (PIU) under the responsibility of Ministry of Economy and Finance (MEF).
