A USD10 million grant is expected to help Haiti improve the availability of water and sanitation facilities in rural communities in Artibonite, the country’s leading agricultural region.
The grant, given by the Spanish Cooperation Fund for Water and Sanitation in Latin America and the Caribbean, will finance the construction of latrines and safe drinking water infrastructure in the region. The construction project will be developed by the Spanish Fund, Inter-American Development Bank and the Haitian government. It will be implemented by Haiti’s National Water and Sanitation Directorate.
The Haiti project is the sixth water and sanitation initiative jointly supported by the Spanish Fund and the IDB.
