Coastal and Marine Habitat Conservation Activity

Offered by U.S. Agency for International Development

  • The objective of this activity is to improve human wellbeing and reduce the threats to biodiversity by improving agriculture and fishing practices in coastal and marine environments of Haiti. The proposed target area of intervention should be in or near a gazetted Marine Protected Area in the Sud, Nippes, Grand-Anse, Sud-Est and Nord-Ouest departments of Haiti. More specifically, the activity should aim to:
  • Reduce the underlying threats to coastal and marine resources by identifying and supporting agriculture, pisciculture and fishing opportunities of local stakeholders that have positive effects on coastal and marine ecosystems;

  • Enhance the resilience of coastal communities to mitigate, adapt to and recover from shocks and stresses in a manner that reduces chronic vulnerability;

  • Conserve flora and fauna in select marine protected areas by strengthening governance structures that have the ability to adaptively manage protected areas and ensure long-term conservation; and

  • Ensure long-term conservation impact by improving stakeholder knowledge of and capacity to implement sustainable natural resource management strategies.
