Haiti: Housing Sector Climate Change Mitigation

Commitment by

Habitat for Humanity International

In 2009, Habitat for Humanity International committed to help Haitians mitigate the impact of climate change and increased hurricanes by providing or repairing shelter for impoverished Haitian families in Gonaives and Cabaret. Habitat for Humanity International planned to 1) build new, basic core homes and repair damaged homes, 2) support entrepreneurs in the low-income construction sector to spur rebuilding efforts and provide employment, 3) facilitate access to construction materials, and 4) train in disaster prevention and mitigation techniques.
