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.

Regional Training Manual on Disaster Risk Reduction for Coastal Zone Managers
Asian Disaster Preparedness Center, United Nations Environment Programme

This Training Manual on ‘Disaster Risk Reduction for Coastal Zone Managers’ is for use in regional training course on DRR for Coastal Zone Managers, aimed at building the capacity of government officials, NGOs, academia and other entities responsible for developing and implementing coastal zone management (CZM) programs/projects by introducing the issues and opportunities for integrating DRR into CZM projects. The knowledge shared through this training will help the participants in developing projects and regulations on coastal areas that incorporate DRR concerns and measures – but will not turn coastal managers into DRR experts. By being trained in this field, coastal zone managers will also better identify which kind of development projects would increase local vulnerabilities.

Discussion paper
Promoting Ecosystems for Disaster Risk Reduction and Climate Change Adaptation
United Nations Environment Programme

The main focus of the paper is to examine potential areas of integration and synergy, highlighting how sustainable ecosystems management approaches help facilitate integration of CCA and DRR. A total of 38 (Eco-DRR, EBA and hybrid Eco-DRR/CCA) projects were examined in terms of their aims, assessments, implementation, monitoring and evaluation (M&E) and policy and institutional contexts to understand how in practice these approaches differ and overlap and to find key integration points. This paper identifies five areas for Eco-DRR and EBA integration in project design and implementation, namely: Defining aims of the project; Conducting risk and vulnerability assessments; Project implementation: methods, approaches, tools; Monitoring and Evaluation; and Policy and institutional engagements.
