Environmental Survey of Ogoniland: Project document
United Nations Environment Programme

In July 2006, the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) received a formal request from the Government of Nigeria for “Supervision of Remediation of the Cleanup of Oil Contamination in Ogoniland”. In order to understand the context of the request and expectations from the Government, UNEP's Executive Director sent a mission to Nigeria. Following the initial scouting mission, a technical mission was sent to the River State to meet with the local government and stakeholders to explain to them the scope of the assessment and obtain their reaction. The team undertook an aerial reconnaissance over the entire area and ground-truthing visits to selected areas. The team also visited the SPDC office to collect various documents and maps related to Ogoniland oil fields. This project document is prepared based on the inputs received during the field visits.

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.
