The contribution is from Stewart Global Solutions, ESRI and Trimble Navigation, and will allow the government of Haiti to make short-term use of software and hardware equipment through FONCIER HAITI, as well as training and consulting.
The contribution is in addition to the strategic cadastre and registration work the OAS has been conducting since June of this year in Haiti, which includes a coordinating cadastre team that works closely with ONACA to make initial assessments and address the most pressing operational needs.
Secretary General of the OAS, José Miguel Insulza, recalled the importance of cadastre modernization in Haiti. “Less than five percent of land is documented or registered, and for as long as there are only traditional customs the possibility of attracting foreign investment will not exist,” he said.
Project FONCIER HAITI is expected to be implemented in two phases that will be carried out during a period of seven years.
