Haiti will receive two grants from the IDB totaling $90m to help finance construction of an industrial park in its northern region and to support efforts to modernize its energy sector. Since the 2010 earthquake, the IDB has approved more than $340m in grants and disbursed $255m. About 70% of Haiti’s population has no access to electricity. Available generation capacity stands at less than one-third of the estimated 500 megawatt demand.
