Environment
The main burdens on Cubaâ's environment include overfishing, tourism, and pollution. While Cuba has undertaken substantial initiatives, such as creating agencies and passing legislation, to protect its environment, the burdens of the fishing, agricultural, and tourism industries pose a threat to the success of these efforts.1 Roughly 60% of Cubaâ's agricultural land is negatively impacted by soil degradation, and water and air quality have declined in recent years.2 Cuba has begun to undertake formal and nation-wide climate change policies, including the construction of reservoirs to help decrease water shortages.3 Cuba is very prone to hurricanes that devastate the island.4

The government continues to balance the need for loosening its socialist economic system against a desire for firm political control. The government in April 2011 held the first Cuban Communist Party Congress in almost 13 years, during which leaders approved a plan for wide-ranging economic changes. President Raul CASTRO said such changes were needed to update the economic model to ensure the survival of socialism. The government has expanded opportunities for self-employment and has introduced limited reforms, some initially implemented in the 1990s, to increase enterprise efficiency and alleviate serious shortages of food, consumer goods, services, and housing. The average ...See More Cuban's standard of living remains at a lower level than before the downturn of the 1990s, which was caused by the loss of Soviet aid and domestic inefficiencies. Since late 2000, Venezuela has been providing oil on preferential terms, and it currently supplies over 100,000 barrels per day of petroleum products. Cuba has been paying for the oil, in part, with the services of Cuban personnel in Venezuela including some 30,000 medical professionals. Show Less ;
