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 response to disasters, aimed at improving both their capability to react and the spreading of prevention culture thanks to food security interventions.
Feature of our projects in Haiti, mainly funded by the European Union Humanitarian Aid (ECHO) and WFP (World Food Program) office, is the special focus on new technologies, such as interactive mapping systems, and the creation of a culture of environmental sustainability. In this framework, a new project, funded by ECHO, started in July 2020 and COOPI was a part of the DRR (Disaster Risk Reduction) Urban Consortium.
Currently, COOPI also intervenes in the West Department of the country, in the municipality of Delmas, to reduce local population's vulnerability and food insecurity, caused by the insecurity in Port-au-Prince.
