Project Description
If provided by the financial institution, the Early Warning System Team writes a short summary describing the purported development objective of the project and project components. Review the complete project documentation for a detailed description.

According to the World Bank, the objectives of this development project are to enhance the resilience of agriculture and ecosystems in selected watersheds and to enable the Government of Haiti to repond promptly and effectively to emergencies.

To accomplish these objectives, the project will include the following four components:

  1. Strengthening of institutional and organisational capacity for landscape level interventions. This part of the project will receive US$10 million. This component will specifically target institutional capacity building, supporting a national level landscape approach to agriculture and watersheds, supporting farmer organisations, and establish a biodiversity fund.
  2. Investments to promote agriculture and ecosystems resilience in the areas of interventions. This part of the project will receive US$14 million. This component will provide support to farmers and farmers' organisations within the targeted zones to increase productivity, diversify agricultural production, and boost landscape resilience to the impacts of climate change. To this end, the component may include investments in climate resilient agriculture, intensification, diversification, and commercialisation of agriculture, and building landscape resilience. 
  3. Project management, monitoring, and evaluation. This part of the project will receive US$3 million. It will finance the purchase of goods, equipment, incremental operating costs, studies, and other expenses for management of project implementation. 
  4. Emergency response mechanism. This part of the project will receive no allocated funds. Instead it will be used as a conduit for the use of uncommitted funds to implement activities in the event of an eligible emergency.

Contact Information
This section aims to support the local communities and local CSO to get to know which stakeholders are involved in a project with their roles and responsibilities. If available, there may be a complaint office for the respective bank which operates independently to receive and determine violations in policy and practice. Independent Accountability Mechanisms receive and respond to complaints. Most Independent Accountability Mechanisms offer two functions for addressing complaints: dispute resolution and compliance review.


The World Bank Inspection Panel is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by a World Bank-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the Inspection Panel, they may investigate to assess whether the World Bank is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment. You can contact the Inspection Panel or submit a complaint by emailing You can learn more about the Inspection Panel and how to file a complaint at:
