Erosion in Haiti, Haiti environment issues

Write a comment  (1)

Without grass and pavement, when the rain comes in a Haitian tent city, it will become a pigsty!

Without Grass, When it rains in Haiti, the soil becomes wet and muddy.

Read this from education.com:

"Grasslands have some protection from wind and water erosion (the process by which materials of Earth's surface are broken down and carried away by natural agents, such as wind and water) because of their grass covering. Grasses have fibrous roots, which are roots that have no main section but spread out into the soil in all directions. Fibrous roots are thin and form a tangled mass in shallow soil. This mass helps to hold the soil together, so wind and water do not easily erode the soil."
