Top Ideas for the Environment
In March 2016, Haïti Priorise held its fourth sector expert roundtable to discuss the best solutions to address Haiti’s environmental challenges. Roundtable participants were asked to identify the strengths and weaknesses of environmental policy and propose actions they think should be a priority to address some of the principal environmental concerns facing Haiti.
The most notable ideas with regard to environment focused on: strengthening the capacity of the Ministry of Environment to fulfill its regulatory function, developing a renewable energy policy to ensure energy sovereignty, strengthening the agroforestry value chain to drive economic growth and job creation, establishing a judicial unit to investigate environmental crimes and improving waste management by forming public-private partnerships.
