We commit to full transparency regarding use of funding and project management. This can be done using Geographic Information System (GIS) satellite technology which views drainage, roads, plants, etc., to survey progress, in real time. This allows stakeholders and investors to measure progress that will invite further investment.
Too many NGOs and non-profits, with good will and intention, are working independently with no common goal. Reforestation must start at the highest elevations in the mountains, working their way down to the plains and valleys. Many NGOs are not willing, or are unable, to start reforestation projects where access is limited, and resources are unavailable. However, these are the areas you must start in to reclaim and rebuild the watersheds that protect projects in low-lying areas. NGOs need to have a standardization of objectives to maximize sustainable economic development.
All workers associated with this project will be given fair emergency medical treatment as well as, access to health care on an “as needed” basis while employed by the project.
We have a certified, World Bank approved, $1 billion biofuel/reforestation plan that will create 100k jobs and produce renewable energy.
We have a proprietary system of combining USDA, USAID, US military, and private construction methods, into a system that allows us to use 75% of existing materials on site, to prevent erosion, create drainage, and create durable dust-free driving surfaces, while at the same time creating 100k jobs for low income, low educated people, and achieve measurable, sustainable results.
Sustainable economic development will create a quota system, where workers are paid for achieving a daily quota, of sustainable development goals, such as, but not limited to, planting trees, creating aggregate, modifying natural resources to be used as construction materials, etc.
Within sustainable economic recovery goals, zeroing carbon emissions can be initiated. Although, sustainability depends upon the creation of a renewable energy sector that can grow alongside the rebuilding of the environment.
Through community organizing we have created a labor pool base, that is qualified and willing to engage the sustainable impact needed to restore Haiti’s environment and economy. Without a sustainable environment, you cannot have a sustainable economy.
Our reforestation project will happen in rural mountainous areas and create high paying, sustainable jobs. This creates an emerging middle class, and returns the rural population from the overpopulated cities, back to the rural areas for sustainable economic development.
Intercropping of food crops in the reforestation areas will produce up to 5 tons of food, per acre, per year, produced for local consumption.
Reforestation will prevent sediment erosion into streams, rivers, and lakes, improving water quality. By controlling erosion through reforestation, the sediment runoff into an around coral reefs will be reduced, and eliminated, thereby rebuilding the coral reef ecosystem, which has been devastated from decades of erosion.
By creating an emerging middle class, with sustainable enviro and agro projects, we can close the gap between prosperity and poverty.
