Preface

MARIANO FERNáNDEZ Amunátegui - Special Representative of the Secretary-General in Haiti

The current political situation in Haiti is characterized by a stabilization process that, although fragile, shows promise and must be nurtured.

Internal displacement has been a frequent and significant part of Haiti’s history since its foundation in 1804. The current mix of inter-related causes includes frequent natural hazardinduced disasters, human rights violations, and large-scale development projects. These are dominated by the impacts of the major earthquake disaster of 12 January 2010, which displaced up to 2.3 million people, mostly from or within the metropolitan area of Port-au-Prince.

Humanitarian action in Haiti over the last three years has helped improve the lives of over 1.5 million Haitians. Almost three years after the devastating earthquake in 2010 that cost the lives of 217,300 people and left 2.1 million homeless, humanitarian action has accomplished significant tangible results. From 2010 to 2012, humanitarian actors ensured adequate services to the 1.5 million displaced after the earthquake and helped return or relocate 77% of these people out of camps.

Editorial

Feeling good

Feeling good about doing good is not always easy in our work. Especially when you consider that often the backdrop for doing good is poverty, crisis, conflicts and disasters. But, like everybody else, we need encouragement and we need acknowledgement, even when behind what we do is sadness or tragedy.
