  8. 8. SB Lions Hope for Haiti Haiti Earthquake Relief After the earthquake hit Haiti on January 12, 2010, Lions immediately established three tent cities to provide shelter to 2,500 people Afterwards, Lions were helping rebuild vital infrastructure
  9. 9. SB Haiti Earthquake Relief LCIF collaborated with Food for the Poor to construct: - 400 permanent homes and a community center - LCIF provided US$ 1.5 million, Food for the Poor contributed US$ 1.28 million 600 Haitian families moved into new, temporary homes thanks to an initiative between LCIF, the Lions of MD111 Germany and HELP, an international non-governmental organization. The families are those who were initially sheltered in Lions' tent cities. LCIF provided US$ 1.4 million for this project.
  10. 10. SB Haiti Earthquake Relief Four classrooms and a laboratory are a part of the new National Nursing School of Port au Prince, where 350 students will study annually. Even before the earthquake, there was a shortage of trained healthcare professionals, especially nurses. LCIF provided US$ 368,421, or 27 percent of the total project cost for construction and equipment expenses. The project is in partnership with HumaniTerra International, a non-governmental organization devoted to surgery.
  11. 11. SB Haiti Earthquake Relief Lions reconstructed the Notre Dame School in Port-au-Prince through an International Assistance Grant with the French Lions of District 103-SW.

  14. 14. Water: DE hefboom tot ontwikkeling L’eau: LE levier du développement Water: THE lever for development Food security in the watershed of the River Onde Verte in the municipality of Belladère, Haiti 65th National Convention Lions Clubs MD112 Belgium Liège - June 15, 2013
  15. 15. Fresh water and food security  Daily drinking requirement per person = 2 to 4 litres  Daily food requirement per person = 2 000 to 5 000 litres for it’s production  About 840 million people suffer from malnutrition  95 % in developing countries  FAO: by 2030 increase by 55 % of the demand for food based on population growth and higher consumption / capita Food demand Fresh water resources Today 2030 Today 2030
  16. 16. Irrigated agriculture versus rainfed agriculture  Rainfed agriculture: 80 % of the arable land  Irrigated agriculture: 20 % of the arable land  Irrigation: 40 % of the world’s food production  Productivity of irrigated land is 100 to 400 % higher than of non-irrigated land for most crops  Changes in rainfall patterns (Climate Change) will lead to decrease of yields from rain-depend agriculture (up to 50 %) arable land food production irrigated agriculture rainfed agriculture
  17. 17. Irrigated agriculture: the solution?  Organisational inefficiency and social injustice  inappropriate technology  exclusion of the poorest  inadequate financial management  unfair water distribution  Poor drainage and irrigation practices leads to water logging  Poor drainage leads to silting  Erosion leads to filling up of the irrigation canals  Poor drainage leads to the rising of the ground water level => Attention for technological, productive, social, management and environmental aspects
  18. 18. Irrigation scheme of Croix-Fer, Haiti  Belladère:  123 / 133 municipalities with access to social services / extremely poor  income: 50 to 100 US$/month . person  5 200 refugees on 79 000 inhabitants  irrigation scheme of Croix Fer important in food security  12th of January 2010: earthquake in Port-au-Prince  200 000 dead; 300 000 injured; 500 000 internal refugees Belladère
  19. 19.

  20. 20. Problems  Irrigation scheme managed by a local committee without any training  Irregular availability of water  Erosion of the valley => filling up of the canals and inundation  Intensive maintenance  The lack of a storage facilities for the harvests  The difficulty to obtain fertilizers
  21. 21. Opportunities  Irrigation scheme exists for more than 20 years  Great demand and collaboration from local population  Possibility for extension (350 ha -> 600 ha)  Possibility for commercialization:  Trade with Port-au-Prince and Dominican Republic  National policy to buy locally grown food
  22. 22. Interventions To improve auto-consumption and income from agriculture in Croix Fer for 800 families Developing and extension (350 ha => 600 ha) Environmental protection Increase and diversification of food production The storage, transformation, and commercialization Improvement of the management
  23. 23. Results after 1 year  1 600 m of new canals  800 m of canals cleaned  Study for environmental measures  Building of storage facility and drying device  Purchasing of two metal silos  Building of Ecosan latrines  Training of farmers on agricultural techniques  Training of management committee Effect  Extension 60 ha  Reduction of maintenance 5 times to 3 times  Increase production beans: + 20 %
  24. 24. Results after 2 years  Study for the extension of the irrigation scheme  3.585 m of new and rehabilitated canals  295 ha irrigated  Increase of 139 farmers working on the irrigation scheme  Protection of 4,22 km of ravines and construction of 76 anti-errosion structures  30 farmers using fertilizers from Ecosan and Bidur
