International Assistance to Haiti: Key Facts as of December 2011


How much of the recovery money pledged at the New York donors’ conference has been disbursed?

At the international donors’ conference “Towards a New Future for Haiti,” held in New York on 31 March 2010, 58 donors made pledges in support of the Government of Haiti’s Action Plan for Recovery and Development. The Office of the Special Envoy (OSE) has conducted a comprehensive review of the fulfillment of these pledges by all donors.

The 55 public sector donors (national governments and multilateral institutions) that attended the conference have pledged to provide $5.50 billion in aid for Haiti in 2010 and 2011. This includes programme support of approximately $4.50 billion, and debt relief in the amount of $995.8 million. Of the $4.50 billion for programmes, donors have disbursed 52.9 percent ($2.38 billion). This leaves 47.4 percent ($2.12 billion) to be disbursed this year.

In addition, these donors have also disbursed $654.8 million for recovery efforts through sources of funding other than the New York pledges.

How much has been disbursed in 2011?

Of the $2.38 billion disbursed, $1.67 billion was disbursed in 2010 and $706.9 million has been disbursed in 2011. As some donors are still in the process of closing their accounts for 2010, they may in future report additional 2010 disbursements.

How much is available for future years?

The balance of funds pledged for 2010 and 2011 that are undisbursed is $2.12 billion. An additional $779.9 million was pledged for 2012 and $3.07 billion was pledged for the years 2013 to 2020. This brings the total amount of funds pledged that are undisbursed to $5.97 billion. Of these funds, an amount of $2.12 billion has already been committed for activities spanning from 2010 to 2017. That is, some donors have already committed funding for activities that will be implemented in future years.
