Following the devastating earthquake that struck Haiti on 12 January 2010, UNEP was mandated by UnderSecretary-General and UN Emergency Relief Coordinator John Holmes to coordinate the environmental response to the disaster. Thanks to a team of senior experts on the ground, UNEP is providing technical assistance and support on environmental matters to the Humanitarian Country Team and to the local government, including through emergency environmental assessments of affected sites and active participation in the humanitarian cluster system.
