Community recovery from conflict through music: Ruha Devanesan at TEDxMontreal
(Sous-titres en français bientôt disponibles) Ensuring the long-term reconstruction of a country that has been overwhelmed by armed conflict or natural disaster also involves supporting culture. Through PeaceTones, Ruha and her team help talented, unknown artists from Kenya or Haiti build their careers while giving back to their communities. PeaceTones tries to rework the traditional record label into something more fair to the artist, while teaching musicians the legal, marketing and technology skills they need to succeed as social entrepreneurs of their own making. Assurer la reconstruction sur le long terme d'un pays ayant été accablé par un conflit armé ou une catastrophe naturelle passe aussi par le soutien de la culture. Grace au projet PeaceTones, Ruha et son équipe, aident de jeunes artistes talentueux qui habitent au Kenya ou à Haïti à construire leur carrière artistique tout en agissant au sein de leur communauté. En tirant parti de l'évolution de l'industrie musicale, il devient possible d'assurer un modèle plus équitable pour l'artiste tout en lui enseignant les outils essentiels afin de lui permettre de réussir en tant qu'entrepreneur social. http://www.peacetones.org/ For more information, please visit http://tedmontreal.com/ Introduction motion animation by: http://www.departement.ca/ In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience.

Haiti's Disaster Risk Management by Ministry of the Interior during the GFDRR
The Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery (GFDRR) Consultative Group (CG) invited Haiti to become a member delegate of this prestigious organization for a second term, making Haiti the first nation in the history of the GFDRR to hold this honor. The Minister of the Interior, Territorial Collectivities and National Defense of Haiti, Thierry Mayard- Paul, attended the conference at the World Bank in Washington D.C on April 16 -- 17, as chief representative of Haiti. The presentation he gave to member delegates stated Haiti's key points on the importance of prioritizing and boosting preparedness and response in the event of any upcoming natural disaster. With preparation, risk reduction, collaborative efforts and integration of a comprehensive plan of action, Haiti implements an effective and successful national disaster risk management system.

Relief in Haiti - Avaaz Report Back
In the last month, more than 19,000 Avaaz members have donated over $1.3 million for relief and recovery in Haiti -- helping outstanding local organizations provide life-saving food, shelter and medical care for thousands of people. Hundreds of thousands of Avaaz members have also signed on to a global campaign that helped secure a commitment to over $1 billion in debt relief for Haiti at the summit of finance ministers in February 2010!

Haiti: "We are in a race against time" (UN Secretary-General)
United Nations, New York, 16 March 2010 - I am just back from a one-day visit where I discussed the way ahead with President [René] Préval, Prime Minister [Jean-Max] Bellerive and other Government ministers and civil society leaders. For Haiti, too, we need a concrete, well-thought-out plan for the future. I therefore asked President Préval and his government to come to the donor's conference in New York, later this month, March 31st, with an agenda of Haiti's national priorities and a strategic action plan for the country's recovery and reconstruction. We are at a critical moment. During a visit to a camp for displaced persons in Port au Prince, I saw nearly 50,000 people crowded into a tent city on a former golf course. When the rains come -- as they will in a very few weeks -- the entire site will be flooded. We have plans for moving these people to safer ground, and for erecting better shelter, but we need the world's help. So far, we have distributed tents and tarpaulins to nearly 700,000 people among 1.3 million displaced persons. We will reach the rest by the end of next month. We have also identified five alternative sites around the capital, where we can move IDPs and where they will be safer and better cared for. But let me be clear: we are in a race against time. And now is the time for the international community to stand by Haiti. The last thing the Haitian people need is a second humanitarian crisis on top of all they have suffered already.

FIU teach-in tackles decentralization of Haiti and other recovery issues
The decentralization of Haiti - shifting its population from densely-populated Port-au-Prince to less populated areas - in the wake of the Jan. 12 earthquake emerged as a major theme in Florida International University's second Haiti Teach-In, sponsored by the School of International and Public Affairs and the Latin American and Caribbean Center on March 6. Other Haiti experts weighed in during the event. Reminiscent of when teach-ins were used in the 1960's to provoke action on behalf of civil rights, FIU held its first teach-in days after the Haiti earthquake. The teach-ins are part of FIU's long-term commitment to Haiti's recovery.

Restore Haiti House Project- In Memory of Kristin Hayes
Kristin Hayes Memorial Home in Haiti Serving in Haiti changes lives. Not just the lives of those being served, but the lives of those that serve. That was certainly true of Kristin. I watched Kristin find her faith in Haiti as she saw Christ's love in action. I saw Kristin find her motherhood in Haiti as she served and loved on the children there. Kristin came back from each trip deeply changed and that showed in her everyday life. She did more than just sponsor children. She volunteered her time working on the Restore Haiti web site. She helped with the community computer lab project. She gave to home building projects. She stayed in touch with her sponsored child and insured they felt cared for by sending Christmas presents and birthday presents and care packages. Kristin unexpectedly passed away in May of this year at the young age of 30. Her friends that served with her there want to honor her love for the people of Jacmel, Haiti by funding a home to be built there and dedicating it to her memory.

Venezuela was once the richest country in Latin America. It has the largest known oil reserves in the world. And its democratic government was once praised world wide. But today, Venezuela’s democratic institutions and its economy are in shambles. The country has the highest inflation in the world, making food and medicine inaccessible to most Venezuelans. Over the last four years, its GDP has fallen 35%, which is a sharper drop than the one seen during the Great Depression in the US. The country’s murder rate has surpassed that of the most dangerous cities in the world. These conditions have sparked months of protests against the president, Nicolas Maduro. And it’s easy to see why: the country has become measurably worse since his election in 2013.

Crisis Response: Early Recovery Restores Livelihoods
We aim to reinforce UNDP's work on livelihoods and economic recovery in crisis and post crisis situations by adopting a more integrated approach to livelihood recovery, disarmament, demobilization and reintegration, and mine action. Our work starts early in crisis and post crisis environments, and provides peace dividends and recovery results early on. It enhances security and aims to quickly create the foundation for long term recovery and development. While in the short term we aim to stabilize crisis affected people's livelihoods, in the long term we enable inclusive economic growth and poverty reduction in crisis and post crisis countries.

Jean is one of the fortunate small business owners who maintained his business after the earthquake. Many business owners lost their small and medium-sized businesses in the earthquake, delivering a blow to a sector that provided hundreds of thousands of jobs. An estimated three quarters of the $2-billion in private sector losses created by the earthquake were sustained by small and medium-sized businesses, according to the Action Plan for National Recovery and Development of Haiti presented at the New York Donors' Conference.

The Bill and Hillary Clinton Haiti Debacle: Growing anger over reconstruction efforts
The news website Tout Haiti reported last month that two prominent lawyers have petitioned Haiti's Superior Court of Auditors and Administrative Disputes, demanding an audit of Bill Clinton's management of the Interim Haiti Recovery Commission (IHRC). There are powerful interests that won't want to see the petition succeed and it may go nowhere. But the sentiment it expresses is spreading fast. In the immortal words of Charlie Brown, Mr. Clinton has gone from hero to goat. Four years after a magnitude 7.0 earthquake toppled the capital city of Port-au-Prince and heavily damaged other parts of the country, hundreds of millions of dollars from the State Department's U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), allocated to the IHRC, are gone. Hundreds of millions more to the IHRC from international donors have also been spent. Left behind is a mishmash of low quality, poorly thought-out development experiments and half-finished projects. Haitians are angry, frustrated and increasingly suspicious of the motives of the IHRC and of its top official, Mr. Clinton. Americans might feel the same way if they knew more about this colossal failure. One former Haitian official puts it this way: "I really cannot understand how you could raise so much money, put a former U.S. president in charge, and get this outcome." Allow me to hazard a guess: While Mr. Clinton was running things for the IHRC, and the U.S. was leading the reconstruction effort, Hillary Clinton was the U.S. Secretary of State, which means that Mr. Clinton was reporting to his wife. Cheryl Mills, Mrs. Clinton's chief of staff and counselor to the State Department (an adviser and consultant to the secretary), traveled to the country an estimated 30 times in four years. A State Department spokesman told me that "reflected the high priority the United State places on Haiti's recovery and development." Requests for comment from Mr. Clinton, through the Clinton Foundation, about the petition and his IHRC record went unanswered. A June 2013 Government Accountability Office report gave a barely passing grade to USAID's Haiti reconstruction effort. It said $170 million was allocated to build a power plant and a port near the Caracol Industrial Park, not far from Cap-Haïtien. The two projects "are interdependent; each must be completed and remain viable for the other to succeed," the GAO explained. The first phase of the power plant was completed on time and under budget. But the port construction was delayed by two years "due in part to a lack of USAID expertise in port planning in Haiti." Projected costs, according to the report, say the estimated shortfall of $117 million to $189 million is larger than originally estimated. "It is unclear whether the Haitian government will be able to find a private sector company willing to finance the remainder of the project."

Plan's Response in Haiti since the earthquake - Plan International USA
Overview of Plan's work in Haiti since the devastating earthquake on January 12th 2010. Plan has provided tents, food and portable toilets to around 50,000 people living in camps. Therapeutic games sessions for children affected by the trauma were implemented and young people volunteered to help Plan with its work. Plan is constructing child-friendly spaces and latrines along with putting into action a 'cash for work' scheme which is providing hundreds of people with paid work and helping rebuild the country. Work on temporary school construction will begin soon which will employ two thousand more. Plan believes that children should have a say in the reconstruction of their country, so have consulted with more than 1,000 children for a study which we hope will be used as a blueprint for the country's recovery and reconstruction.

UNDP Launches Cash-for-Work Programme for Destroyed Communities in the Philippines
25 November, Tacloban, Philippines -- The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) began debris removal projects last week by providing cash-for-work to villagers hit hard by typhoon Haiyan. Local communities started clearing rubble and medical waste, earning much needed income to get back on track after the destruction from the typhoon, while also easing access routes for humanitarian supplies. "The debris removal is an important part of the relief operation as streets without rubble are a precondition for aid distribution," said Haoliang Xu, UN Assistant Secretary-General and Director of UNDP's Regional Bureau for Asia and the Pacific during his visit to the storm ravaged city of Tacloban. Over the past weekend, an initial 180 men and women started removing rubble and medical waste in two hospitals, two schools and streets in three severely damaged neighborhoods (barangays) in Tacloban and in Palo through the UNDP organized cash-for-work programme. They received basic equipment and tools such as generators, shovels, and wheelbarrows to begin the early recovery process. With the assistance of the Australian aid agency, AusAID, 50 workers per day receive vaccinations against tetanus. "In addition to contributing to the humanitarian effort, the debris removal is also a critical component of economic recovery," added Haoliang Xu. "We're going to create 200,000 temporary jobs in debris removal in the most affected municipalities over the next six months." The benefits of debris removal cash-for-work programme include: · The cleared roads will allow easier access for humanitarian aid to reach isolated communities; · The cash-for-work employees selected in cooperation with local authorities and community leaders will bring income to 200,000 households; · The payments to workers will inject needed cash into the local economy; · The removed rubble and properly disposed waste will reduce the risk of disease. The debris removal and waste management are part of a US$ 20 million early recovery plan which has building resilience of these communities at its core. The programmes under the plan will help, among other things, rehabilitate local businesses, restore community infrastructure such as access roads and town (barangay) halls, and will contribute to restarting the provision of services of the local governments . "While meeting the immediate needs of the families who lost everything is of utmost importance right now, we must also work with communities to recover their lives and livelihoods, and build in resilience to withstand future super storms," added Haoliang Xu. "It is not just a matter of building back better, it is also a matter of building back sustainably." The cash-for-work and recovery programme builds on UNDP's extensive experience in reconstruction and rebuilding. For example, 16,000 people employed in UNDP's cash-for-work programme after typhoon Pablo hit the Philippines in 2012 removed half-a-million cubic meters of rubble. The funding for the new initiative so far comes from Japan, the UN Central Emergency Response Fund, and UNDP. To meet the urgent needs of the devastated communities, UNDP is seeking another US$ 10 million for recovery through the Typhoon Haiyan Action Plan launched on 13 November 2013 in Manila.

Haiti: Six Months On
Six months on from the devastating earthquake that killed up to 300,000 people and destroyed much of the Haitian capital. Plan has been in Haiti for more than 30 years and works with around 42,000 sponsored children. So we were very well placed to understand people's needs there. Once the earthquake struck, Plan focused initially on direct assistance of relief goods, and then built up programmes to protect children, to get the education system started again, get children back into school, health and support livelihoods so that their parents could have money to get what they need.

Haiti long-term relief and support: http://bit.ly/HAITIsupport The rainy season in Haiti can be deadly, even before the threat of hurricanes — making adequate shelter for earthquake survivors essential. Within the first months following the earthquake, World Vision distributed more than 7,300 tents and nearly 64,000 tarpaulins. Now, World Vision is planning to build sturdy framed, long-lasting transitional shelters, which will protect children and families from harsh weather. In Corail, where many families will struggle to stay dry during the rainy season, World Vision is partnering with other organizations to provide shelters. As additional land becomes available, we will help provide long-term shelters — and a sense of safety — for the displaced. _____________ World Vision Website: http://WorldVision.org/ World Vision Facebook: http://facebook.com/WorldVision World Vision Twitter: http://twitter.com/WorldVisionUSA World Vision Blog: http://blog.WorldVision.org/ World Vision Instagram: http://instagram.com/worldvisionus

Haiti Rebuilds - A Journey of Hope
United Nations, New York, February 2012 - Two years ago, over two million Haitians saw their lives change forever after a magnitude 7.0 earthquake rocked their country, killing over 200,000 and displacing 1.5 million people. The world reacted quickly, sending in aid and recovery teams, pledging money and support to rebuild a country that already experienced high levels of poverty and inequality. Since the immediate earthquake aftermath the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) has been working with the Government of Haiti and a wide range of national and international partners, civil society organizations -- and especially with the affected communities, with Haitians at the centre of the recovery process. Haiti Rebuilds, a 20-minute documentary was created by recently graduated students from Ciné Institute, Haiti's only professional film academy in the southern coastal town of Jacmel. It was co-produced by UNDP and mentored and directed by award-winning documentary-maker Jonathan Stack. The film depicts the reconstruction process through the lenses of young Haitians who have witnessed the earthquake's devastation; but also the tremendous resilience of the Haitian people, taking the reconstruction of their country -- and their future -- into their own hands.

UNICEF: "Baby Tents" offer safe space for breastfeeding in Haiti
PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti, 18 February 2010—Amidst the collapsed buildings and temporary camps of this battered city stand 12 special tents dedicated to providing mothers and their infant children a safe and calm place to breastfeed. The 'baby tents' are run by Action Against Hunger, with support from UNICEF. Many Haitian mothers stopped breastfeeding as a result of myths that arose after the quake, including that stress makes a mother's milk dry up. Another myth is that if a mother is not eating properly, her milk is not good. These misconceptions triggered a massive influx of donated powdered infant formula into Haiti, which has created a dangerous situation. Because many Haitians lack clean water, they're tempted to mix the formula with dirty water, which can leave their infants with life-threatening diarrhoea. UNICEF Nutritionist Ali Maclaine says people need to be aware of the consequences before sending powdered infant formula."You think you're saving babies, but you are actually risking their health and lives," she said. As in any emergency, Haiti's infants and young children are the most vulnerable survivors of the quake. Breastfeeding is an affordable and vital way to help keep them alive and healthy.

UNICEF: Return to school in Haiti
http://www.unicef.org/infobycountry/haiti_52779.html PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti, 17 February 2010 The first day of school in a UNICEF tent classroom was a happy day for Yolanda Senatus, 9 and a far cry from the tragic day she had experienced just a month earlier. I like to draw, sing and play with my friends. I am so happy today, said Yolanda, who lost both her home and her school in the devastating earthquake that struck Haiti on 12 January. Yolanda is from Mount Jacquot, a hard-to-reach area in the vicinity of Port-au-Prince, the Haitian capital. The community is on top of a mountain that is accessible only by steep roads; at times, its even difficult for helicopters to land there. Nevertheless, a UNICEF supply team has delivered tents for the temporary school and a clinic in Mount Jacquot, as well as school kits, medicine and basic medical equipment. The UNICEF team arrived at the location early one morning last week and helped community members set up the tents. Classes for 300 children began that day.
