    ARLINGTON, VIRGINIA — Counterpart International works globally to build sustainable, practical and culturally appropriate development. In the Dominican Republic it concentrates on building public-private alliances around coral reef conservation and fishery management. This planning grant elevates MacArthur supported work with farmer and fisher groups, scientists and the government to a bi-national scale with Haiti. CI will work closely to design a responsible community-based fishing model; 2) strengthen the capacity of co-management of Monte Cristi National Park; and 3) explore means to expand the conservation, development, and governance model to neighboring Northeast Haiti.
