Integrated management of transboundary watershed Rio Libón

Woodlands and tree populations are dwindling in the border area between the Dominican Republic and Haiti. Consequently, the degradation of natural ecosystems is increasing while opportunities to earn income from the use of natural resources are decreasing. Worsening poverty among large swaths of the population and the lack of alternative sources of income are putting ever greater pressure on natural resources. Deforestation, erosion and the loss of fertile soils pose an increasing threat to the livelihoods and future prospects for poor population groups living in the transboundary watershed for the Libón River. The project supports the transboundary programme Frontera Verde as it implements measures to restore ecosystems in the rural area of the watershed for Rio Libón.
