About Sebastian Africano

Sebastian is the International Director of the Fort Collins-­‐based NGO, Trees, Water & People (TWP). Sebastian is working with TWP partners in Haiti to help Haitian farmers to develop more sustainable sources of income by adding diverse, agro-­‐forestry plantations to their current farming practices.  This will reduce their reliance on charcoal production and restore forest cover on Haitian landscapes.  This proof of concept project will set the stage for a model that can be widely replicated for the purpose of recovering and rehabilitating Haiti’s natural resources while developing sustainable livelihoods for rural smallholders throughout the country.
