Environmental Audit of the Sites Impacted by the "Probo Koala" Toxic Waste Dumping in Abidjan, Cote d'Ivoire - Site 4: Koumassi (Industrial Zone)
United Nations Environment Programme

On 19 August 2006, the ship Probo Koala off-loaded 528 cubic meters of liquid wastes in the port of Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire. The material was transferred onto tanker trucks operated by a local contractor, and dumped in twelve different locations around the city. In June 2012, UN Environment received a formal request from the Government of Côte d’Ivoire to undertake an independent and scientific environmental audit of the sites that were impacted by the dumping of wastes of the Probo Koala. The Government wished for UN Environment to determine whether the sites continued to pose risks for the environment or for public health, and to make recommendations about additional or corrective clean-up measures that would need to be carried out in case contamination was detected.

Haiti: Etude sur les Filières Agricoles et le Verdissement de l’Economie dans le Département du Sud
United Nations Environment Programme

Ce rapport se concentre sur une analyse approfondie du secteur agricole dans le département du sud. Le document apporte une analyse stratégique pour le développement de cinq filières agricoles dans le département du sud avec le Plan National d’Investissement Agricole (PNIA) au niveau national. Les filières ont été sélectionnées selon des critères environnementaux, économiques et sociaux afin d’évaluer plus profondément leur potentiel à contribuer au développement d’une économie verte dans le Sud d’Haïti. Pour Haïti, il était évident, d’après cette consultation, qu’une économie verte devait concerner les secteurs économiques les plus importants pour la population locale (agriculture), contribuer à la diminution de la pauvreté et assurer un développement durable au niveau écologique.
