Haiti Environmental Restoration

Client: World Vision

Wrote a concept paper proposing environmental restoration as a key part of post-earthquake recovery for Haiti. World Vision embraced this concept and sponsored a conference at Yale University to explore the potential. Attendees included Haiti’s Minister of Agriculture and 100 experts in environmental restoration, emergency recovery, and poverty reduction. (2010)

Results: Conference participants used the conference communique to develop specific programs to employ displaced Haitians in restoring the environment and the agricultural economy of Haiti.
