UNEP Review of the Haiti Project Phoenix Municipal Waste Management and Waste to Energy Proposal - Final Report
United Nations Environment Programme

On 23 July 2012 the United Nations Environment Programme was requested by the Secretary of State for Energy for the Government of Haiti (now the Minister Delegate for Energy Security) to provide technical assistance to the Government in reviewing and, if appropriate, improving the proposed Phoenix private sector municipal waste management and waste-to-energy project. Subsequently from August 2012 to January 2014, UNEP undertook a multi-stage detailed and independent review of the proposed project. UNEP also worked and negotiated with the project developers on behalf of the government to improve the anticipated benefits, economic value and feasibility of the project. This document is the final report of the review.

Integrated Baseline Study: Ten Communes of the Southwest Coast, South Department, Haiti 
United Nations Environment Programme

The Côte Sud Initiative’s Integrated Baseline Assessment is a multidisciplinary study that covers social and economic aspects of rural dwellers in Haiti. This report provides an integrated multi-sector analysis for ten communes in the southwest coast of the South Department of Haiti, designed to serve as a baseline for a larger ongoing monitoring platform. The purpose of the baseline study is to collect statistically significant evidence of the social and economic conditions of the population at the microscale (household) level. It will also provide evidence of the current state of the infrastructure and services offered, at the regional scale. The new data contained within this study is meant to inform decision makers, guide policymakers and support ongoing project design.

Project Document: Programme for the Agulhas & Somali Current Large Marine Ecosystems - Agulhas & Somali Current Large Marine Ecosystems Project
United Nations Development Programme, Global Environment Facility

The Agulhas Current Large Marine Ecosystem (ACLME) stretches from the north end of the Mozambique Channel to Cape Agulhas and is characterized by the swift, warm Agulhas current, a western boundary current that forms part of the anticyclonic Indian Ocean gyre. The Somali Current Large Marine Ecosystem (SCLME) extends from the Comoros Islands and the northern tip of Madagascar up to the Horn of Africa. It is characterized by the monsoon-dominated Somali current, which has a strong, northerly flow during the summer, but reverses its flow in the winter. These two LMEs are both complex and interactive, and are strongly influenced by the South Equatorial Current, which is funneled across the Mascarene Plateau east of Madagascar before diverging north and south to become components of the Agulhas and Somali Currents. The LMEs are primarily defined by their bathymetry, hydrography, productivity and biota. They are characterized by a dynamic system of ocean currents and upwelling cells, which regulate climate and influence weather patterns, sea temperatures, water chemistry, productivity, biodiversity and fisheries. They also represent an important repository of living marine resources, which underpin the livelihoods of coastal communities in 10 countries and territories.
