The Nexus of Energy, Environment, and Agriculture

Helping Haiti grow sustainably by advancing agriculture and green technology.

To address Haiti’s high-energy costs and environmental and agricultural concerns, the Clinton Foundation is working with the Haitian government and a variety of agriculture and green technology companies to develop commercially viable programs which address these needs. Over the past five years, the Foundation has provided over $1.5 million to support agriculture and green technology initiatives throughout the country, working on projects that support reforestation, improve agriculture methods, and support capacity building and training. These programs target agricultural products that are historically significant and in which Haiti has a comparative advantage, such as high-quality coffee and sisal. With the Foundation’s support, these programs and agricultural activities are scaling up and improving output and sustainability.
