Synopsis Ninety-eight percent of Haiti has been deforested due to reparations paid to the French, logging for timber, slash-and-burn agriculture, and the cutting of trees to fill the great demand for charcoal. Haiti, once known as "La Perle des Antilles" for its lush plant life and mahogany forests, has lost all of its natural forest cover and has severely impoverished water resources. The environmental problems in Haiti have a direct, negative impact on its people's economic status, their health and quality of life. Conservation in the developing world is a complex problem that requires innovative solutions. Understanding that agro forestry in formerly deforested landscapes is a promising strategy, the Haiti Timber Re-Introduction Project was developed to address environmental, economic and health needs that are so desperate in Haiti.
Step By Step is a short documentary that explores the Haitian Timber Reintroduction Project (HTRIP) as a sustainable strategy working to eliminate deforestation in Haiti. This short documentary provides insight into the causes and implications of deforestation in Haiti and HTRIP as a sustainable to strategy to solve a seemingly insurmountable problem. The film also portrays the struggle and the joys of life in the mountains in Central Haiti and the spirit of the Haitian community. There isn't enough food people die, but HTRIP is doing something about it. HTRIP will plant 1 million trees by 2016.
