Hurricanes Matthew (2016) and Irma (2017) have made Haiti and its inhabitants the perfect example and victim of climate change. Despite the incredible energy emanating from the country, the situation is still critical.

COOPI has been active in the country since the very after-earthquake by supporting displaced people during the emergency and preventing cholera epidemic from spreading.

To face the calamities hitting Haiti - such as cyclons, floods, earthquakes and drought - we are supporting local authorities with projects on preparedness and readiness to disasters, aimed at improving both their capability to react and the spreading of prevention culture.

A sharp focus on new technologies is a staple feature of the projects set in Haiti (and in other places as well), e.g. interactive cartographic systems, alongside the will to increase awareness about environmental sustainability.

COOPI is also operating in the North West of the country, in the municipalities of Baie-de-Henne and Bombardopolis, to reduce the vulnerability and food insecurity of the local population, caused by its great exposition to the risk of drought.
