Situation Report

Programme summary:

Since the January 2010 earthquake, when 1.5 million Haitians were displaced from their homes, there has been an 87 per cent decrease in the number of internally displaced households and an 80 per cent reduction in the number of sites or camps. Return-and-relocation projects have been observed to have contributed considerably to the decrease in internally displaced persons (IDPs) sites. IFRC’s Integrated Neighbourhood Approach (INA) programme has coupled this with camp mitigation activities (which were completed in June 2013) to ensure that basic water, sanitation and hygiene services are available in targeted camps. Since the INA programme, over 13,000 people have been relocated in Port-au-Prince or other regions and provided with relocation grants. In addition, over 300 households have been assisted in repairing their houses as well as providing water and sanitation facilities. IFRC has also been supporting people and micro enterprises to commence or upgrade their micro projects. This has been done through trainings, provision of equipment and financial support.
