Coastal Partners: Applying Ecosystem-Based Disaster Risk Reduction (ECO-DRR) through a Ridge-to-reef Approach in Port Salut, Haiti
United Nations Environment Programme

In 2013-2016, the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the European Commission (EC) implemented a pilot demonstration project on Ecosystem-based Disaster Risk Reduction (Eco-DRR) in Haiti. The Eco-DRR project aimed to reduce disaster risks in the Municipality of Port Salut through a landscape or ridge-to-reef approach. The pilot demonstration project in Port Salut provided a practical example of Ecosystem-based Disaster Risk Reduction (Eco-DRR) in a coastal area. The project aimed to demonstrate how Eco-DRR measures could mitigate hazards, and reduce exposure and vulnerabilities to disasters, thereby contributing to disaster risk reduction in Port Salut.
