Women & Girls Ignored Caracol Industrial Park
This brochure, Women & Girls Ignored Caracol Industrial Park, outlines the specific impacts of the Caracol Industrial Park project in Northeast Haiti on women and girls. The Caracol Industrial Park is a major garment factory project funded by the Inter-American Development Bank and other international donors. The project began in 2011 and forced approximately 3,500 farmers and their families off their land to make way for the project.
This brochure highlights the distinct and disproportionate impacts of the displacement and other environmental and social risks on women and girls. It reveals the lack of any gender-specific planning to take into account the specific needs of women and girls, which resulted in female heads of households receiving on average US$1,000 less final compensation than their male counterparts.
