Description and results


The activities to prevent the spread of COVID-19 includes providing personal protective equipment to the personnel of municipal administrations in order to ensure the provision of municipal services; providing support in the form of awareness-raising materials; informing the population about the presence and spread of Covid19 , preventive measures and behaviours to be followed in order to prevent community contamination. The project aims to build the capacity of Haiti’s local populations to participate in the development of their community so that all women and men in urban or rural communities benefit from decent public services and diversified economic opportunities. Project activities include the following: (1) supporting and assisting three ministries and organizations involved in the decentralization (Ministry of Planning and External Cooperation, Ministry of the Interior and Territorial Communities, and the Office of Human Resource Management); (2) building capacity for steering the decentralization; (3) training and mentoring women mayors; (4) supporting local communities targeted for revenue generation and management; and (5) organizing consultation workshops and awareness campaigns to better integrate the needs and concerns of women into local development.

Expected results

The expected results for this project include the following: (1) decentralization and deconcentration efforts are conducted in a strategic, coordinated and inclusive manner, ensuring integration of the distinct perspectives and priorities of women; (2) territorial institutions are modernized and strengthened in order to leverage a more accountable and inclusive local governance that adequately responds to people’s needs; and (3) development of territories is driven and rebalanced by the use of tools and approaches that take into account local circumstances and women’s specific needs.

Results achieved

Results achieved as of March 2021 include: (1) provided technical and financial support to implement activities connected to the steering of the decentralization and deconcentration of reforms. Examples include the finalization seminar for the 2018–2023 state modernization program (PME-2023), technical support to the Fédération Nationale des Maires D’Haïti (national federation of Haitian mayors) for their advocacy for decentralization, support for the organization of the forum on decentralization and deconcentration in two border departments (Sud-Est and Nord-Est). Also planning workshop with technical and financial partners to develop a unified strategic support framework to implement state reform; (2) modernized supported institutions, among others, the Ministry of Interior and Territorial Communities (MICT), to implement the communal administration modernization program (PMAC) in target communes in the border strip. The program supports the deconcentration through the strengthening of delegations and vice-delegations. Encouraged the pooling of resources to conduct the departmental forum on territorial governance central to PME-2023. In 2020, MICT executives conducted four missions to carry out the remaining PMAC implementation phases; and (3) developed territories by supporting, among others, the Ministry of Planning and External Cooperation (MPCE)to conduct activities. These activities include the awareness workshop on the policy note regarding integrating gender into territorial planning. Provided support to the MPCE to organize a series of two-day workshops on territorialisation in collaboration with the Sustainable Development Goals implementation support project.
