Progamme description

The aim of this project is to contribute to the rehabilitation of urban areas of Port-au-Prince affected by the earthquake, through the implementation of an overall system of debris recycling, removal and processing. Debris management will be organized to contribute to priority actions aiming at improving the living condition in the neighborhoods. The project aims at managing debris from targeted areas, emphasizing on reuse and recycling options in situ and arranging transportation to areas of landfill and debris processing to preserve the public interest by reducing the risks associated with uncontrolled discharge of debris. 


Overall objective:

Support the safe return of displaced families through the rehabilitation of affected neighborhoods. The implementation will adopt an integrated and participatory approach (social mobilization) that will contribute to the reactivation of local economies (job creation) particularly through debris removal activities (debris removal).
