PLAN SIERRA Combating deforestation in the Dominican Republic

The ‘Plan Sierra’ NGO is proud to announce the 3rd phase of the ‘Plan Sierra’ programme, which is financed by the AFD (French Development Agency), and has been developed and managed in partnership with SCP (Société du Canal de Provence). The programme is focused on Integrated Water Resource Management and sustainable socio-economic development, with a particular emphasis on reforestation and access to water in the country’s largest catchment area, that of the Yaque river.

Since 2001, 10,250 hectares of land have been replanted, and over 1,000 more families now have access to drinking water around the clock!
