In 1991, the people of Cuba had to quickly embrace some sustainability initiatives that were necessary for survival at a time of great economic crisis which continued for about 9 years. This became known as the “Special Period” or Período Especial.
These initiatives impacted housing, transportation, healthcare, agriculture, education, commerce, and other areas of life. These are practices which are being utilized around the world because of their economic and environmental benefits.
