A malnourished infant was taken to a clinic in the Pétion-Ville IDP camp in Haiti following the earthquake of 2010. With the land already deforested Haiti’s citizens were already vulnerable to food shortages. When the earthquake hit, these preexisting conditions became acute and many died because the system, already fragile, was overwhelmed. Had there been greater resilience in the environment many of the basic things that Haitians needed to survive in a time of great crisis would have already been provided. This left the citizenry catching up when they should have had the basics already covered. Haiti, 2010.
