November 2009 Environmental Delegation

Exploring Causes and Solutions to Haiti’s Environmental Crisis
National and Grassroots Perspectives
November 5-14, 2009
Konbit Pou Ayiti/KONPAY and the Quixote Center’s Haiti Reborn program invite you to participate in a delegation focused on Haiti’s environmental crisis. In 2008, Haiti was hit by a brutal storm season, lashing Haiti with four powerful storms – wreaking havoc and causing damage unprecedented in recent memory. Gonaives – the great city of Haiti’s independence — was submerged in mud and filthy water for months. Hunger became famine and the weak began to die in southeastern Haiti. More than one million people were affected by flooding, mudslides, loss of crops and livestock, loss of loved ones and ultimately hope for the future.
