THE VALUE OF EXAMPLE

The guilty timber of Haiti

In 2010, a devastating earthquake hit Haiti causing an appalling 300,000 casualties in Port-au-Prince, the overpopulated capital of one of the poorest countries of the world.

This inconceivable toll could have been lowered by preventing a 50 year old rural exodus largely the result of massive deforestation. Wood charcoal is the prime source of energy in this Caribbean island and the rarefication of this resource has driven more and more people to the shabby neighbourhoods of Port-au-Prince.

A small foundation has decided to fight back by replanting trees on the slope of one of Haiti’s summit, opening the way to the forest rebirth. It hopes that its pioneering action will be widely imitated.
