Short-term Consultancy: Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) training for monitoring climate adaptation in Haiti

Background information

As a Caribbean small island developing state (SIDS), the Republic of Haiti is classified as one of the most vulnerable countries to climate change. Its level of vulnerability is bound to increase with the amplification of the global warming phenomenon, which will compromise its sustainable socio-economic development process as well as its efforts to eradicate hunger and reduce inequalities. Faced with such a situation, adaptation becomes an unavoidable strategy and a priority for the country, which has already made enormous efforts to implement appropriate climate adaptation initiatives.

Indeed, a certain number of activities have already been carried out, in particular the realization of sectoral vulnerability studies, a development and capacity building plan in terms of adaptation, consultation of key actors in the various departments of the countries and a draft of several chapters of the National Adaptation Plan (NAP) document. The Haitian government intends to complete the development of the country’s first NAP in 2022.
