Haiti-Canada Municipal Cooperation Program - Phase 2


This project aims to strengthen partner municipalities and federations to improve the delivery of public services, better promote and regulate local development, and support economic and social development. It seeks to increase the transparency, efficiency and financial sustainability of local governance institutions, and enable them to be role models in municipal management and local service delivery for the rest of the country. The project also supports municipal initiatives that benefit citizens and small businesses, such as improved roads, electricity, water and sanitation and waste management, and stimulate local economic growth. The project builds on the results of the Haiti Earthquake - Haiti-Canada Municipal Cooperation Program - Phase 1 by continuing to build the institutional capacity of five Haitian local governments (the City of Port-au-Prince and the municipalities of Gressier, Leogane, Grand Goave and Petit Goave) and three national associations of elected officials (the National Federation of Mayors of Haiti, the National Federation of Boards of Communal Sections and the National Federation of Assemblies of Communal Sections). The project also supports the Ministry of the Interior and Local Authorities in its progress towards decentralization. Some project activities include: (1) providing technical support by Canadian municipal experts in administration (budgeting, budget monitoring and reporting), urban and land use planning, road repair, economic development and waste management services; (2) implementing a tax collection system, including issuance of tax accounts communications and monitoring of revenue collection; (3) developing and implementing regional urban plans and economic development plans; (4) providing technical support to the three national federations of locally elected officials to design and implement training programs for their members, improve their advocacy capacity and optimize the integration of common services; and (5) supporting the Ministry of Interior and Local Authorities to enhance its capacity to respond to municipal needs and to design and produce relevant municipal management and communication tools for nation-wide dissemination.

PROG2017-2021-DGD: Sustainable and climate-smart land use (agro-forestry) practices are implemented to ensure


The overall aim is to improve the livelihoods of rural communities in Western Uganda, by promoting and facilitating community-based forest management (UG1) and sustainable and climate-smart land use practices (agro-forestry) (UG2). We focus on two districts: Karabole and Hoima, in western Uganda. In both specific objectives the interventions focus on three aspects: (1) capacity building courses of community promotors and staff of farmers associations in community forestry and sustainable agriculture (including women and youth particularly) ; (2) field actions in terms of participatory forest management and agro-forestry (with special attention for water and soil conservation); (3) promotion of good practices by authorities and institutions. After five years, the farmers associations with which we work will be able to gain a triple win out of their natural capital: socio-economic advantages, climate and biodiversity. This way they can break the vicious circle of land degradation and poverty that threatens rural communities in Uganda and reduce their vulnerability for climate change

Land Administration Project - Phase II


This project aims to enhance economic and social growth and reduce poverty by improving access to land and increasing the security of land tenure in Ghana. It is a long-term, multi-phase development intervention designed to consolidate and strengthen Ghana’s land administration and management systems including in rural areas. The effective administration and management of Ghana’s natural resources, particularly of land, is fundamental to achieving food security, or access to safe, sufficient and nutritious food for Ghanaians. It is also of critical importance to Ghana’s overall economic growth and development.

PROG 2017-2021_Outcome_Bénin_Les capacités de résilience des populations face aux risques de catastrophes et a


Ce programme vise la réduction de la vulnérabilité des communautés locales face aux risques de catastrophes et d’épidémies dans 3 zones au sud du Bénin dans les départements de l’Ouémé et du Littoral. Le changement climatique, la dégradation de l’environnement et la vétusté des infrastructures associés au manque de connaissance sur les pratiques de réduction des risques contribuent fortement à intensifier les crues dans la lagune qui causent des inondations et favorisent apparition de maladies hydriques telles que le choléra, diarrhée). L’impact sanitaire, social, économique et environnemental sur la population, est de plus en plus élevé et la rend toujours plus vulnérable, particulièrement les femmes et les enfants: maladie, précarité, conflit foncier, déscolarisation, malnutrition, etc. À travers le programme, la Croix-Rouge de Belgique s’assure d’augmenter les capacités de résilience des communautés locales, de la société civile béninoise, des communes ciblées et de la Croix-Rouge Béninoise en renforçant la préparation et la réponse aux catastrophes, les pratiques d’hygiène avec une attention particulière aux femmes et aux enfants et à leur accès durable aux infrastructures d’assainissement de base. Afin de renforcer son intervention, la Croix-Rouge de Belgique s’inscrit dans un consortium avec la Croix-Rouge Béninoise et la Croix-Rouge Néerlandaise et développe des synergies avec des acteurs belges de la Coopération non gouvernementale et des organisations béninoises de la société civile : échange d’informations et d’expériences, réflexion autour de stratégies et méthodes, développement d’approches innovantes intégrant des nouvelles technologies.

L’Agroécologie, Pilier d’une Transition Écologique et Sociale (APTES) aux Philippines


EF’s outcome in the Philippines will increase the resilience of rural and coastal communities facing ecological and socio-economic challenges through the scaling up of agroecological practices and the adoption of public policies favourable to fair and sustainable food production systems. This will be achieved by enhancing agroecological production in a perspective of food sovereignty. Furthermore, the resilience of the communities will increase through improved natural resource management, disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation. Moreover, living conditions will be improved through the diversification of livelihood and the creation of viable social enterprises. Finally, rural movement capacity will be strengthened towards influencing political decisions that favour a sustainable agricultural production system (land tenure security, regional and national advocacy in towards agroecology and family farming, women’s rights, peace building). Small subsistence farmers and fisherfolks households who belong to the most vulnerable groups will be the target population of the outcome, with a special focus on women, youth, the elderly and IPs (indigenous people) to ensure that no one is left behind. The outcome will be reached in Mindanao region with 5 partner organizations. EF has chosen to work directly with local partner organizations, through local coordination, because development is mainly an endogenous process.


The outcome in the Philippines is to develop and strengthen the resilience and sustainable living conditions of the farming and fishing households (especially women and youth) in Mindanao through continuous organizing/movement building of the rural population, widespread adoption of agroecological productive practices, the creation of diversified livelihood and viable SEs in a more favourable political, legal and institutional context within the overall framework of food sovereignty.
