Description

Better Universe and Citizen's original mission is reducing soil erosion has accentuated numerous struggles in Haiti. Much of the problems stem from Deforestation, which is caused by cutting trees for charcoal. Deforestation has resulted in the permanent loss of Haiti’s valuable rich topsoil. Unstable soil caused by soil erosion also results in mudslides during hurricanes that kill people. Siltation of reservoirs and lakes renders them economically unviable thus causing damages to infrastructures such as hydroelectric dams, irrigation canals and roads. Unfortunately, Baren land limits groundwater recharge meaning there are shortages of drinking water for many Haitians. The pressure to cut trees will remain until alternative sources for charcoal have been developed, necessitating a different approach to the control of soil erosion.
