The Haitian Charcoal Market

The Haitian Charcoal Market
The charcoal market in Haiti is contributing to the mass deforestation of the country. We are working to provide stoves that burn far less fuel, decreasing the rate of forest removal in the country.

A helping hand in the kitchen
A young Haitian girl cooks a meal over two Zanmi Pye Bwa ("Friend of the Trees") clean cookstoves in the Delmas 60 Tent Camp in Port-au-Prince. The Zanmi Pye Bwa, designed by Trees, Water & People and International Lifeline Fund, reduces a family's daily fuel costs by 40 percent. The cookstove is made locally by talented Haitian tinsmiths using local materials.

A charcoal-dependent nation

A charcoal-dependent nation
A young Haitian boy unloads bags of charcoal to be sold on the streets of Port-au-Prince. Haiti's charcoal industry, which wreaks havoc on the environment, employs some 200,000 Haitians. It is estimated that 90 percent of the Haitian population is dependent on charcoal to cook every meal. Trees, Water & People's clean cookstove program reduces a family's daily charcoal consumption by up to 40 percent, saving a significant amount of income and reducing deforestation caused by charcoal production.
