A couple of interesting articles published recently about Haiti’s environment:
A Quake-Scarred Nation Tries a Rural Road to Recovery (New York Times, 24th December 2011), an interesting article about the attempts by some Haitians to go back to the countryside and live off the land after they were driven out of Haiti by the earthquake.
Haiti – Environment : Conservation of soil and reforestation in Savane Carré (Haiti Libre, 24th December 2011) (a story about attempts to plant trees and improve the environment in the centre of Haiti) (see also on the same story Le Matin et RadioVizyon Plus FM)
Study links tropical cyclones to earthquakes (AFP, 8 December 2011) “US researchers said Thursday they have found evidence that tropical cyclones in Haiti and Taiwan were followed by earthquakes, suggesting that heavy rains and landslides may unleash temblors.”
And finally, though this is about the environmental history of Haiti, but “only” its history, there is a first review of Laurent Dubois’s new book, Haiti: The Aftershocks of History, which was published yesterday and which I am currently reading.
