  3. 3. Haiti’s Environmental, Energy & Infrastructure Issues
  4. 4. Geography of Haiti •  Area: 27,750 sq. km. •  Capital: Port-au-Prince •  Terrain: Rugged mountains with small coastal plains and river valleys, and a large east-central elevated plateau. •  Climate: Warm, semiarid, high humidity in many coastal areas. •  Natural resources: Bauxite, copper, calcium carbonate, gold, marble. 
  5. 5. The Issues Deforestation, Energy, Waste/Water, Infrastructure
  6. 6. The Bottom Line: Deforestation “In 1923 forests covered nearly 60 percent of the country; today they cover less than 2 percent.” –Global Security
  7. 7. The Bottom Line: Deforestation
  8. 8. The Cause & Effects of Deforestation •  Cause: Dependence on charcoal •  Charcoal- 75% •  Hydroelectricity- 5% •  Petroleum products- 20% Topsoil Flooding & Deforestation erosion degradation Desperately need alternative energy!!
  9. 9. Infrastructure
  10. 10. Infrastructure after the Earthquake “There are no patterns of traffic, no recognizable right of ways, no sense of order to the mass chaos in and around the capital Port au Prince — the epicenter of the massive quake.” –World Focus
  11. 11. Waste & Water
  12. 12. 10-Year Strategic Plan Let heaven and earth praise him, the seas and all that move in them, for God will save Zion and rebuild the cities of Judah.

  56. 56.  ”For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11 10 year plan
  57. 57. Goals and Objectives –  To establish and repair health care facilities, equipped with medication and equipment, ready to be used by long-term or Haitian permanent doctors, and to make Haiti a healthy, self- sustaining country in order to treat not only agricultural health related issues but also for the general need of health and sanitation in the desired area for the sake of demonstrating the grace of God.
  58. 58. Phase 1 (Preparation for Immediate Relief) Years 1-3 –  Clean up trash around the area in which the tents/health center/ agriculture fields are going to be •  Missionary workers •  Salvation Army –  Locations: »  Chantal in the region of Sud »  Les Anglais in the region of Sud. »  Fonds- Verrettes in the region of Sud-Ouest.

Phase 2 (Transitioning from immediate relief preparation to long-term preparation) Years 3-5 –  Start constructing health centers/ start reconstructing damaged hospitals •  Martissant health centre •  Solidarite maternity hospital •  Doctors Without Borders Trinité trauma center hospital –  Missionary volunteers –  Salvation Army –  Most tents around the immediate area should be set up and ready to go. •  Plumbing is crucial and thus must also be completed.
  60. 60. Phase 3 (Beginning of Immediate Treatment and Continuing to Prepare for Long term) Year 5-7 –  Begin treatment in the tents either using the long-term doctors or Haitian doctors (meaning that the first Haitian doctors, nurses, RNs, and TBAs should be educated and have the appropriate credentials) •  All Haitian medical staff must be permanent. –  Continue to bring in medication (they will run out and eventually need more) –  Continue to build health center/ rebuild health centers. •  For rebuilding health centers, by now the outer structure must be constructed and the electricity, plumbing, air conditioning, etc will be in progress during this phase. –  Summary: Tents must now be ready for treatment of patients. Medications are still coming in and replenishing tents that have already used them on patients.
  61. 61. Phase 4 (Completion of Long- term, Self-sustaining) Years 7-10 –  Health center completed and ready to treat patients.( Haiti must now be self-sustaining in producing doctors, nurses, midwives, RNs, and TBAs.) –  Continue to bring in medication (they will run out and eventually need more)(in this way the health center must be self-sustaining in itself) –  Summary: The tents and the health center must now be complete and ready to that patients. Reconstruction of hospitals can still be on going. The end of the plan is only determined if Haiti is now self-sustaining and further planning is unnecessary.
