Urging our nation's leaders to end hunger
 

What’s Next for Haiti?

It's been seven months since the earthquake in Haiti, and recovery efforts are well under way. Diana Aubourg Millner, a Haitian-American and senior foreign assistance policy analyst for Bread for the World Institute, looks at where things stand now in “Rebuilding Haiti: Making Aid Work Better for the Haitian People.”

With unprecedented levels of goodwill, focus, and commitment to Haiti from people and governments around the world, there are still enormous hurdles to rebuilding Haiti. Even before the earthquake, 80 percent of the country’s population lived on less than $2 a day, an estimated 2.4 million people were without ready access to food, and the malnutrition rate was the highest in the region.

In many ways, Haiti is still in the urgent relief phase, but the country must work toward rebuilding and reconstruction—to a recovery that is led by Haitians. Millner outlines some of the key challenges Haiti faces in moving from relief to development.
