Summary

The Public-Private Alliance Foundation (PPAF) is building evidence on innovations for clean cooking in Haiti. Most families endure a poverty-respiratory disease-deforestation trap of dependence on charcoal for cooking. PPAF & collaborators are conducting R&D about solar cookstoves & biodigesters for biogas & garden fertilizer. This aims to promote sustainable development, empower women & girls & combat climate change. COVID-19 attacks the respiratory system, giving all increased importance.

Challenge

Haitian families suffer from heavy reliance on charcoal for cooking the daily meals. The WHO declares household air pollution as among the world's most pressing health and environmental problems. Women & children are especially affected. Haitian hillsides are denuded and soil slides into the sea. In addition low income families have little chance to broaden the horizons for their children.

Solution

PPAF works with several Haitian & USA-based organizations to implement, monitor and advocate non-polluting cookstoves and fuels, and to support classes for related employable skills. Settings are a Haitian university, a training center for low-income youth, a network of girls' clubs, & women-owned small businesses. The project addresses climate concerns and now the COVID-19 crisis. It engages local groups, documents innovations, challenges & successes, publicizes results & promotes expansion.

Long-Term Impact

After establishing academic support & reporting, and building up qualitative & quantitative information in Hinche, Port-au-Prince, Jacmel and Cotes de Fer, PPAF & collaborators aim to reach hundreds through schools & training centers, girls' clubs and small businesses. The Clean Cooking Alliance, Solar Cookers International, Solar CITIES Global Biogas Education, Population Council, Solar Education Project/GDS & the United Nations are resources for info & sites for advocacy.
