Why Haiti?

Years of ecological devastation in Haiti has led to significant crop failure, flooding, soil erosion and water table depletion.

 

Only 2% of Haiti's original forests exist today.

59% of the population currently live in poverty.

 

The destructive impact environmental systems, like tropical storms, is exacerbated due to the lack of protection that native forests and mangrove systems provide.
