PARDH served as a guide for government authorities and international partners, so that a series of urgent measures and key projects could be carried out to put Haiti on the path of change, to ensure that it will be an emerging country by 2030. At the same time, the national authorities developed a Strategic Development Plan for Haiti, to provide further details on the PARDH guidelines and include all public policies in a consistent global package, as a single programming approach.

These choices are designed to make Haiti an emerging country by 2030, and testify to the clear intention of the authorities to seek a balanced, sustainable development that will guarantee and maximize the impact of the programmed activities. This approach will apply to the next three years covered by this document, which presents the three-year development program and the three-year investment program, the first tools for implementing the PSDH.
