Ten years ago, on 12 January 2010, the earth quaked in Haiti. The earthquake triggered one of the biggest humanitarian disasters of the 21st century: Over 300,000 people lost their lives, in some regions of the country up to 90 percent of the buildings lay in ruins. The consequences of the earthquake shaped an entire generation in the country, which is already considered the poorest in the western hemisphere.
And what is the situation in Haiti like today? For hundreds of thousands of Haitians the living situation has not improved. Since September 2019, tens of thousands have been taking to the streets every week to fight unbearable poverty. What lessons can be learned from the numerous aid projects within the framework of reconstruction and development cooperation? How can new perspectives be supported?
