In the targeted areas remain several problems caused by the adoption of unsustainable agricultural practices. In addition, the area’s isolation, the limited presence of state authorities and the generalized status of poverty among the population, increase the damaging effects on the Climate Change and prevents any socioeconomic development. In this context is therefore necessary to stop the vicious cycle between poverty and Climate Changeal degradation.

The introduction of an Climate Changeally sustainable production system will improve the communities economic conditions and reverse the deforestation process, in order to restoring the deteriorated lands in the cross-border areas. Agro forestation will be introduced gradually in order to produce a sufficient income growth for the socio-economic development of communities. In addition, the reforestation of the protected areas of Nalga de Maco National Park and the restoration of water springs belonging to the Artibonite River basin will be carried out.
