Tapis Rouge Amphitheater: Creating Multifunctional Public Spaces in Haiti
Description: The Tapis Rouge Amphitheater was one of several public spaces planned and constructed by Global Communities under the LAMIKA program. LAMIKA, which stands for “a better life in my neighborhood” in Haitian Creole, is funded by the American Red Cross and relies on an inclusive approach with an intensive community engagement process to prioritize and reconstruct spaces in the dense, urban neighborhood of Carrefour-Feuilles, Haiti. Carrefour-Feuilles is one of the many informal neighborhoods which suffered extensive damage in the 2010 earthquake. After the earthquake, the site of Tapis Rouge was used as a tent camp for displaced people. Now the space is multifunctional, used by residents for recreation, exercise and relaxation. Designed in partnership with EVA Studio, the open air amphitheater has concentric rings for different activities. One is occupied by outdoor exercise equipment and seating. Another ring is terraced with gardens and greenery. At the top end, a row of trees conceals storage tanks for the adjacent water distribution station. The revenue generated from the sales of water will be reinvested into maintaining the public space. Equally important is that the participatory process of designing and constructing the space, listening to community opinions, and using local labor and materials has provided the residents with a sense of ownership, identity and pride.

Aidons Haïti à se relever
Description: Lorsque l'ouragan Matthew a frappé Haïti en octobre 2016, la communauté de Dame-Marie a été l'une des plus touchées. Mais grâce au travail de sensibilisation aux catastrophes naturelles, pas une seule vie n'a été perdue dans cette ville balnéaire de près de 30 000 personnes. Le PNUD se consacre plus que jamais à aider les communautés haïtiennes comme celle de Dame-Marie à se préparer aux urgences. En plus de sauver des vies, chaque dollar investi dans la réduction des risques et la préparation aux catastrophes permet d'économiser environ 7 dollars en frais de relèvement. C'est aussi un bon investissement pour aider les Haïtiens à reconstruire eux-mêmes, à déblayer les canaux d'irrigation, les routes et les débris et à bâtir des bâtiments plus résistants tout en gagnant de l'argent pour assurer leurs besoins et ceux de leurs familles.

Help Haitians Rebuild
Description: When Hurricane Matthew rumbled through Haiti in October 2016, the community of Dame-Marie was one of the hardest hit. But thanks to the work preparing people for natural disasters, not a single life was lost in this seaside town of almost 30,000 people. UNDP is devoted, now more than ever, to helping Haitian communities like Dame-Marie prepare for future emergencies. It’s a good investment: In addition to saving lives, every $1 spent on risk reduction and disaster preparedness saves an estimated $7 in recovery costs after a disaster strikes. It's also a good investment to help Haitians rebuild their own country, clearing clogged irrigation canals, roads, and debris, and learning to construct earthquake- and hurricane-resistant buildings, all the while earning money to rebuild these stronger structures in flood-free zones.

Haiti: Helping prevent the spread of cholera in the wake of Hurricane Matthew
Description: United Nations - Soon after Hurricane Matthew struck La Grande Anse and other parts of the south of Haiti, the UN Children's Fund (UNICEF) and its partners, such as non-governmental organization ACTED, mobilized quickly with their response. For example, members of ACTED's Rapid Cholera Intervention Team were the first official responders from outside the region to arrive in the commune of Anse d’Hainault. Most emergency supplies faced access challenges in reaching certain regions at the time, however, ACTED teams were able to reach communes that had yet to received aid. Hurricane Matthew caused widespread damage, flooding and displacement. A few days after it struck, a flash appeal was launched to respond to the most urgent humanitarian needs of people seriously affected by the hurricane. As of 21 November, only 45 per cent of the appeal - which has now been increased to $139 million - has been funded, leaving a gap of $76 million.
