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.

Nepal: A path to recovery
Description: In April 2015, central Nepal was struck by a 7.8-magnitude earthquake and several major aftershocks which killed more than 9 000 people. More than half a million homes were reduced to rubble, and countless roads, bridges and other infrastructure were left in ruins. Here in the remote village of Barpak, the epicentre of the earthquake, the powerful tremor damaged the walking trails that connected the village to the rest of the country. To restore access to services for the villagers, EU Humanitarian Aid has supported People in Need (PIN) in implementing a trail reconstruction programme in the area. Under the initiative, vulnerable groups, such as breast-feeding women and female-headed households, are encouraged to help repair damaged trails in exchange for cash. This has not only provided affected families with an opportunity to earn income and improved their livelihoods, but also contributed to rebuilding the communities. Video by People in Need
