Overpopulation in Haiti
For those who aren’t aware, Haiti has 10 million people on land the size of Maui. To put that into perspective, there are 30 million people in Canada; imagine a third of Canadians all squeezed onto a small island! But Haiti’s population keeps growing and is projected to be nearly 70% larger by 2050. The fact is that as Haiti still languishes after the earthquake, providing relief would have been much easier with a smaller population. This size of population and the scale of issues it creates only lead to an increasingly chaotic situation. More population demands more effort in solving humanity’s problems anywhere and not just in Haiti.
