Urban Development Initiative (UrDI) For the Canaan Area of Port-Au-Prince, Neighbourhood Plan: Hautes Sources Puantes, 2016
Hautes Sources Puantes lies in the northern part of the central area of Canaan land. The neighbourhood is one of the less dense in the area where just 3,000 people live there. The houses are spread all over Sources Puantes and are interconnected through secondary streets. The open spaces are abandoned and open the possibility for further development in the neighbourhood. UN-Habitat followed the similar participatory approach as for the rest of the neighborhoods. The process begins with mapping the existing reality of the neighborhood. The proposal for each neighbourhood, is based on the input of the community, stakeholders and residents which is involved in the different phases of the evolving planning and design process.
