Organization Mission

Haiti Infrastructure & Development's mission is to bring economic vitality & prosperity to the country of Haiti, one watershed at a time. To achieve this, HID is proposing extensive infrastructure improvements combined with an innovative Community Based Natural Resource Management (CBNRM) entity.

Problems and/or Opportunities

The frailty of Haiti’s infrastructure & development has been exacerbated by numerous natural disasters, which also compound its social, cultural and economic poverties. The island is routinely battered by hurricanes that generate life threatening & erosive wind, rain and flooding. The UN estimates that the 2010 earthquake reduced the capital city of Port au Prince (PAP) to 20 million cubic meters of rubble.

Solutions and Projects

Reforestation and agriculture projects

Micro-turbine generator project, irrigation, and community water distribution

Establishing a University weather station for data collection on the impact of climate change in Haiti
