As promised, I would like to welcome everyone to my unofficial project kick-off for my graduate research. The shock is still settling in but I am so happy to be able to get things started with the support of such a great institution.
Our Earth is experiencing a shift in global temperatures and with that, comes a greater propensity of natural disasters such as hurricanes, flooding and regular flash floods. Like many other caribbean nations, Haiti is vulnerable to some of the major impacts of these disasters. Places such as Gonayiv, Aux Cayes, Martissant, Cap-Haïtien, etc, will become prime areas to investigate in order to establish better preparedness and potential policies. We all know that even a normal thunderstorm can leave the roads in these areas inaccessible. Community development and preparedness will become essential in alleviating the destruction of these disasters and other regular
I will be heading to Haiti next week to meet potential partners and visiting a couple of these sites to get a feel for project potential.
Again thank you to everyone supporting!
