On January 12, 2010, Haiti was struck by a magnitude 7.0 earthquake, devastating its capital, Port-au-Prince, and surrounding areas.
The quake affected more than two million Haitians, claimed over 200,000 lives, and left 300,000 injured. At the height of the crisis, more than 1.5 million newly homeless people were sheltering in some 1,500 spontaneous settlements. The earthquake indirectly affected the entire country, sending 570,000 people fleeing for the provinces and setting off shock waves through the economy.
Five years after the devastating earthquake in Haiti, durable housing solutions remain out of reach for hundreds of thousands of displaced people. Although forced evictions from displacement camps decreased in 2014, forced evictions in the context of reconstruction and infrastructure development projects, for which the Haitian authorities are directly responsible, are increasing. This report calls on the Haitian authorities and on the international community to take much more decisive action to make the right to adequate housing a reality for all in Haiti.
This report is provided in response to the “Assessing Progress in Haiti Act of 2014” (P.L. 113-162) (“the Act”), which directs the Secretary of State to submit to Congress no later than December 31, 2014, and annually thereafter through December 31, 2017, a report on the status of post-earthquake recovery and development efforts in Haiti. The requested report, prepared by the Department of State in cooperation with other U.S.
Violences faites aux femmes : associer les hommes à la lutte
Ce rapport semestriel, qui ne prétend pas à l’exhaustivité, fournit un aperçu de la diversité des programmes et activités d’une partie des acteurs étatiques et non-gouvernementaux œuvrant dans le domaine de la protection des personnes déplacées internes en Haïti. Ce rapport a été préparé par le Haut-Commissariat aux droits de l’homme (HCDH)/Section des droits de l’homme (SDH) de la MINUSTAH à partir des informations soumises par divers acteurs dans le domaine de la protection dans les camps de personnes déplacées internes (DPI) issues du séisme du 12 janvier 2010.

It follows a report covering the period January to June 2013, published in September 2013.

Haïti un nouveau regard
Le Gouvernement, que j’ai l’honneur de diriger, est heureux de mettre à la disposition des citoyens et des acteurs du développement, le deuxième rapport national sur le suivi de la mise en oeuvre des objectifs du Millénaire pour le développement (OMD).
Haiti’s agricultural production may be strongly affected by sea-level rise and more frequent extreme weather events (e.g., hurricanes) hitting coastal areas.
The quality and yields of coffee in regions where it is currently produced (especially at lower elevations) may decline as a result of lower rainfall and higher night and daytime temperatures.
A projected upward shift in the areas where coffee is suitable will increase the risk of high-altitude forests and protected areas being converted to cropland.
The earthquake that struck Haiti on January 12, 2010 sparked a massive displacement crisis. At the peak of the crisis, there were over 1.5 million internally displaced persons (IDPs) in 1,500 camps scattered across Port-au-Prince and the surrounding regions. Four years later, approximately 147,000 IDPs remain in 271 camps. These declines are dramatic, but it is difficult to determine the extent to which those uprooted have been able to access truly durable solutions to their displacement, and what should be done to support solutions for those who remain displaced.

Haiti has long faced severe natural and human-created hazards due to its location in the Caribbean hurricane zone and to widespread deforestation. Hazards including storms, floods, and droughts have highly destructive impacts on buildings, land, water, livestock, and people in Haiti. The poorest Haitians, including low-income women, children, and elderly people, are especially vulnerable. What are the impacts of climate change, now and in the future?

IOM-Brookings report on durable solutions to displacement in Haiti
Haiti - The results of a study produced by IOM and the Brookings Institution entitled: “Supporting durable solutions to urban, post-disaster displacement: Challenges and opportunities in Haiti” are being presented today at IOM’s Headquarters in Geneva.
Gang-driven violence in the urban slums of Haiti’s capital, Port-au-Prince, has been a preoccupation of international peace-building efforts for the past decade, yet continues to pose a serious threat to peace and stability in the country. These communities have, in recent years, been the site of an ongoing series of experiments, involving a range of different actors, aimed at reclaiming them from armed gangs; however, the isolated and fragmented nature of these interventions has reduced their cumulative impact.
This paper analyses the role of the private sector in humanitarian action in Haiti, with a particular focus on the response to the devastating earthquake that struck Port-au-Prince in 2010. During the response, international and Haitian businesses participated in humanitarian efforts – both directly assisting populations and working with aid agencies – for commercial and philanthropic reasons.
