CBO | S. 1023, Haiti Reforestation Act of 2011... environmental recovery of 35% of Haiti’s land area within five years

S. 1023 would authorize assistance to Haiti to reduce deforestation,
increase efforts to restore forest cover, and improve management of
natural resources. The bill would set specific targets for those
efforts: promote the environmental recovery of 35 percent of Haiti’s
land area within five years, restore forest cover to at least 10
percent of Haiti within 30 years, and increase agroforestry (the
simultaneous production of trees with crops or livestock) cover to
more than 25 percent of Haiti within 10 years.
