EU funded project implemented by Dominican Republic, Cuba and Haiti
Santo Domingo.- The Dominican Republic, Cuba and Haiti, members of the Caribbean Biological Corridor, have inaugurated the first Plant Propagation Center in Dosmond, Haiti, where plants will be reproduced for reforesting Haitian territory.
The space includes a greenhouse with a capacity for 600,000 plants, a germinator, an office, a warehouse and a multi-use space. It is already providing employment to local residents.
“This is a beautiful project for the people of Haiti,” said Myrielle Louis, one of the center workers. "The Caribbean Biological Corridor is doing good work to protect the country’s ecosystem,” said Wilna Pierre, 24, who is active in the Ouanaminthe youth association’s conservation activities.
The inauguration was attended by Haitian Environment Minister Joseph Ronald Toussaint.
The project is supported by the European Union.
