Climate change has affected Haiti in a countless amount of ways. The country faces increased risks of extreme weather events like hurricanes, leading to devastating floods and landslides that put humans and animals in danger. Unusual rainfall patterns have affected agriculture, diminishing crop yields and making food difficult to grow. Rising temperatures have also contributed to the degradation of natural resources, amplifying challenges in this already fragile environment.

How has climate change impacted this area?

  • Organizations focus on reforestation to combat deforestation so farmers and others reliant on land have a chance to get their livelihoods back on track.
  • Programs are expanding access to clean and renewable energy sources like solar power and hydroelectricity, reducing dependence on fossil fuels and lowering carbon emissions.
  • International aid, global organizations, and governments are helping with climate change adaptation and mitigation strategies, including financial support for sustainable development projects.

What is currently being done to help combat or remedy the situation?

  • The Philippines also faces the negative effects of climate change in similar ways that Haiti does. Rising sea levels pose a threat to low-lying coastal areas and increase the risk of erosion and saltwater intrusion, affecting freshwater sources. Events like hurricanes, floods, and landslides occur in the Philippines as well and rising temperatures lead to the degradation of ecosystems, affecting biodiversity and natural resources in the region.
  • The effects this has globally are that global sea levels see a large rise, the loss of ecosystems and biodiversity impacts a large number of species, and agriculture from the Philippines to the rest of the world takes a significant hit due to the destruction caused.
