Resettling Haitian Families - International Organization for Migration 2013 (en)

This project seeks to resettle 16,000 of the most vulnerable Haitian families (or 52,720 individuals), who are still living in camps following the devastating earthquake that hit Haiti near Port-au-Prince in January 2010. It is estimated that over 200,000 people died as a result of the earthquake and 1.5 million people were internally displaced. According to the International Organization for Migration (IOM), as of December 2013, 39,464 families (146,573 individuals) were still living in 271 camps across Port-au-Prince. The IOM is resettling the families living in 60 camps that have been identified as the most environmentally vulnerable, in which people face higher risks of forced evictions, and/or which are located on school grounds. Some project activities include: (i) identifying and registering the people living in the 60 camps; (ii) providing water and sanitation services, including maintaining latrines, during the resettlement process; (iii) offering health, psycho-social and protection services to the most vulnerable people in the camps; (iv) providing case workers to help people find new housing and negotiate rental agreements and moves; (v) providing rental subsidies to cover a full year of housing rental for a family and transportation subsidies to cover moving costs; (vi) cleaning up vacated camp areas and returning the properties to their owners; (vii) conducting follow-up visits with resettled families to evaluate their satisfaction with their new housing situations; and (viii) providing technical assistance to improve the capacity of the national and local governments and community based organizations to promote the resettlement of the remaining displaced people.
