Haiti, Three Years after the Earth­quake: The Time for Account­abil­ity by Haiti Advo­cacy Work­ing Group

Feb­ru­ary 4–6, 2013, Washington, DC

 

Haiti, Three Years after the Earth­quake:
The Time for Account­abil­ity by Haiti Advo­cacy Work­ing Group

 

2013 presents itself as a time of reck­on­ing, an oppor­tu­nity to assess the impact of the last three years, based on the prin­ci­ples of account­abil­ity, trans­parency, gov­er­nance, inclu­sion, par­tic­i­pa­tion, and consultation.

  • How did the plans envi­sioned take into the account the needs of the major­ity of Haitians who are poor and vulnerable?
  • How were their voices included in the process of recon­struc­tion and development?
  • What was the impact of the pro­grams and projects imple­mented on the major­ity of Haitians?

The Haiti Advo­cacy Work­ing Group is ask­ing you to save the date for dis­cus­sions around the 3rd Com­mem­o­ra­tion of the earth­quake in Haiti. Please join us as we host a series of panel dis­cus­sions on agri­cul­ture, hous­ing, and women rights, with grass­roots part­ners from Haiti, mem­bers of Con­gress and their staff, Dias­pora, friends of Haiti, and media outlets.
