The final major component of our spring break trip was the interviews we conducted with Haitian families. These interview involved collecting baseline socioeconomic and environmental data, basic family information that will be required to register families to sell carbon offsets, information on current land use and coffee and tree planting preferences. We also created geo-referenced farm maps where property boundaries and the areas where farmers intend to plant coffee were recorded.
