In the past years, problems between Haitians and Dominicans have reached an all new high. Haiti and Dominican Republic are two countries that coexist on the same island, with a fake line dividing the two. By “fake line”, I mean in actuality Haitians and Dominicans are not really separate individuals in the fact that both groups of people have the same history and come from the same place. The main problem is some Dominicans do not accept this fact. Although these are two “different” countries it is impossible for Haitians and Dominicans not to cross paths eventually. The history of one country can not be told without telling the history of the other. Unfortunately, these countries do not co-exist positively with one another due to past. In the past years, problems between Haitians and Dominicans have reached an
Haitians are constantly living in fear whether it’s a natural disaster or leaders who rule in fear and tortured and killed approximately 30,000 people due to political reasoning.

Not only does Haiti have a dark past but they are the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere today which affects many others.

When researching information about Haiti’s cultural dimensions, there wasn’t a significant amount of data available. However, a cultural dimension model will be developed based on personal research(Appendix D). Geert Hofstede’s cultural dimension model is a five-dimension model that rates countries from 1 to 100 based on certain criteria such as power distance, individual vs. collectivism, masculinity vs. femininity, uncertainty avoidance, and long-term orientation. When looking at power distance, which measures how evenly power is distributed and the influence that one has over another, Haiti is assessed at 50. Power is not evenly distributed in the country and there are times where the citizens will try to rectify that imbalance of power. Other times, citizens will just accept their place in society without making any political waves.

Haitian coffee export quantum has steadily declined from 35,000 tons per year a century ago to less than 20,000 tons per year in the late 1970s and 1980s. Exports increased by 13 percent in 1988 in response to the removal of the export tax. However, they have since declined due to damage from Hurricane Gilbert, rust disease, and other factors.

As most of the time Haitian coffee exports very stable, the impact of hurricane caused by climate change do influenced economic very much. There is one more example to show the impact of climate change (drought) to economic.
