Settlements in the Port-à-Piment watershed
Most of the settlements in the Port-à-Piment watershed are located along the rivers. The highest population density is concentrated along the water streams and coastline. On the other hand, the distribution of population in high-elevated areas is more dispersed and less dense. The settlements along the rivers are highly vulnerable to different hazards such as flooding and bench erosion.
