Red Tape! Bureaucracy! Inefficiency!

By: Matthias Resch

Haiti was once lush and green from the north to the south, to the east and to the west, but now only 1 percent of all natural forest remains. Like in many a country where people lack access to safe and reliable energy, they know no other way than to cut and burn tress for their everyday energy needs. Three quarters of that energy is used for cooking food; millions of meals equals million of trees. It is not only Mother Nature that is harmed, but also cooking with firewood or poorly made wood-charcoal kills around 4 million people globally every year, mostly women and children.
