Recall that in 1920, 60% of Haiti was covered with forests. Today, only 2% still have original forests. This massive deforestation has serious consequences: soil erosion, landslides, loss of wildlife and flora, declining crop yields, etc… To try to stop this phenomenon, many projects exist across the country. Reforestation takes many faces : mornes reforestation projects, planting fruit trees, nurseries offering different types of trees… But these projects often are unknown to the public.

TOTAL Haiti’s objective is to give visibility to all these projects, all these individual and collective actions. They exist maybe on your next door and if this is not the case, you can get inspiration from an existing project to create your own, seek advice from experts…

TOTAL Haiti proposes to reward the best reforestation projects: the first edition in 2015, has collected more than 450 registrations and at the awards ceremony, 14 projects have shared 4 million Gourdes in premium :
