Haiti: Linking up local resourcefulness and development assistance

Is Haiti a cursed country? We could believe so five years after the January 2010 earthquake, which cost the lives of 250,000 people and forced over a million to live under the tents of refugee camps. Humanitarian aid has certainly alleviated suffering, but these same ills that plagued Haiti before this disaster remain very present today. It is what we call underdevelopment. Consequently, the issue today is firstly to rebuild what the earthquake demolished and, secondly, initiate a dynamic for economic growth.
