An improved method for planning protection infrastructures against natural disasters caused by climate change in Haiti

AECOM

Northern/North-East/Artibonite/Center and South Regions, Haiti

 

AECOM was commissioned by the Ministry of Agriculture, Natural Resources and Rural Development to conduct preliminary studies for flood-protection infrastructure investments for five watersheds in Haiti. AECOM put forward an innovative technique combining engineering, hydrology, and social economy. It identifies, assesses, designs and prioritizes future infrastructures that will meet the needs of local communities while providing the best protection against natural disasters and limiting impacts on the environment, all in the context of climate change.
