Land Use Land Cover, South Department of Haiti
This map shows the breakdown of land use and land cover across the South Department of Haiti. The dominant class is agroforestry at 24%, followed by pasture at 20% and cropland at 14%. Forest only represents 3% of the South Department, while woodlots represent only 2% of the total area coverage. A large portion of the area with slopes higher than 30% (45') are currently being used for agroforestry, which is generally recommended for anti-erosive practices. While 11% of land with slopes higher than 30% are covered with forests and woodlots, the analysis also shows that over 26% is being used for agriculture (including cropland and pasture).
