Identify rare and threatened plants species from La Foret des Pins in Haiti and develop activities for their long-term survival, which will be integrated into the forest's management plan. Create two nurseries for native species, with the purpose of strengthening plant populations. Juniperus eckmanii, one of Earth's rarest trees with only one damaged specimen remaining, will benefit from a special in-vitro reproduction program led by Conservatoire Botanique de Brest in France, prior to reintroduction in the wild.

Strategic Direction: 1 Improve protection and management of 45 priority key biodiversity areas
