Unite Caribbean has carried out a study on the various existing intercommunality modalities and the formulation of a framework for intercommunality in Haiti in partnership with the firm ESA Consultance. For its implementation Unite Caribbean relied on:
– A strong knowledge and specific skills in local governance, decentralization and communal organization in Haiti and in the Caribbean;
– Availability of a contact network of mayors and knowledge of communal actions developed in the framework of the assizes of decentralized cooperation in 2017 and workshops in 2019 and 2020 with departmental associations of mayors.
This study allowed Unite Caribbean to capitalize, analyse and share best practices in Haiti and internationally in terms of intercommunality and to structure a governance and regulatory framework for intercommunality in Haiti including all levels of communities (communal sections and communes). Unite Caribbean also facilitated and coordinated the consultation of actors for the validation of the intercommunality framework.
The Unite Caribbean team was thus able to provide its client with a number of tools. It drafted a start-up report including an analysis of the legal environment, a list of targeted interlocutors, an interview grid, objectives, indicators, activities, and a schedule. She also mapped intercommunality experiences: location, typology, results, analysis, elaborated a SWOT matrix of the analysed experiences, a note of Analysis of the intercommunality practice and, a reform proposal report.
