Cumulative impact assessment for regional development in the Cap-Haïtien to Ouanaminthe Urban Corridor

By some authors

Final draft

In an effort to strengthen northern Haiti as a development zone, the Government of Haiti, together with international agencies and donor countries, has made or will make significant investments along the northern coastline from the city of Cap-Haïtien to Ouanaminthe.

In trying to improve local incomes and well being, some major projects may nevertheless endanger the region’s sensitive and unique ecological, historical and agricultural resources and undermine development gains.

Consequently, the GOH, IDB and USAID have asked the American Institute of Architects (AIA) to develop a Regional Management Plan (PAR) for the Cap-Haïtien to Ouanaminthe urban corridor and Local Growth Plans (PAEs) for eight towns along National Route 6 (not including Cap-Haïtien or Ouanaminthe) to help anticipate development needs and mitigate potential environmental and social impacts.
