Haiti: South Department Forest Energy supply Chain
United Nations Environment Programme

This report assesses the socioeconomics of charcoal production in Haiti’s rural South Department as well as potential solutions to prevent the harvesting of valuable tree species and to reduce pressure for wood from key coastal ecosystems. It provides the results of extensive surveying of the charcoal and firewood supply chains from their origin in the South Department to the main markets of Les Cayes and Port-au-Prince. It then assesses and identifies several significant opportunities for UNEP to intervene and add value in the forest energy sector in the South Department.
