Martissant is a densely populated area near the center of Port-au-Prince connected by two main busy roads. It is a place where open space is very scarce. A park is truly an out of the world serene social space. Following a proposal from Foundation for Knowledge and Liberty (FOKAL) in June 2007, a presidential decree freed 15 acres land from four estates for public use as 'Martissant Park'. These four estates where the development for the park is under process since February 2008 are Dunham, Mangonès, Pauline and Leclerc. A surrounding buffer zone has also been decreed. The project has started with a mission to maintain historical heritage, Haitian flora and creation of exceptional natural environment. It will have arrangements to host many cultural, research and training programs.
The work of watershed management in the Morne Hospital area has been completed on August 2, 2013. Even a slightest rain, especially in the slopping alluvial areas near the Morne Hospital and many other parts of Port-au-Prince, used to stall the normal lives of local people. The project has bestowed many additional benefits over its primary objective of flood management. The project under the sponsorship of Community Violence Reduction (CVR) for US$178,634 has created jobs for 1345 people at 220 workers per rotation. Further, it reduced community violence, increased concern for the environment, improved health condition and strengthens the drainage system of the city. The banks and thresholds were constructed with dry walls as a measure for allowing rainwater sip through the wall and reduce the risks of future landslide. Vetiver seeding used in the process further solidified the walls. All constructions have been banned and the area has been announced as the state-approved zone. . The area will be reforested with useful plants like bamboo, mango and avocado.
Mole Saint-Nicolas is geographically positioned to benefit from a wind channel as well as the depth of the coastal waters to provide alternative forms of energy. The plan for development of the site includes this energy component, as well as the development of a maritime corridor, the use of the region's natural offerings and the ever-important tourist aspect, with a strong emphasis on the promotion of the area's vivid history.

The city of Marchand Dessalines was named after the Haitian Emperor, Jean-Jacques Dessalines, who made the plantation his seat, surrounding it with half a dozen forts around the town. Located in the Artibonite Department, the town was the world's first Black Capital after the birth of the world's first free Black Country in 1804. As of a decade ago, from a census taken in early August of 2003, Merchand Dessalines is home to at least 120,000 people, all populating an area totaling 177 square miles.
If one tries to find Maissade on a map, one would look to the coordinates where they might find other towns like Liancourt or Marchand Dessalines, but, since Maissade is further inland than the first town, a further 10' North and 8' West would be needed to put you on the right track. Maissade saw an investment in soil conversation turn considerable profit for them. These returns showed that such projects, those which use the organizational skills of local peasants to manage the watershed management, can be highly effective.
