Haiti Exemplar Community Settlement
In 2010, Deutsche Bank, with Digicel Foundation, John McAslan + Partners, and the One X One Foundation committed to launch the Haiti Exemplar Community Development Project, a planned model settlement for 125 to 500 families in Zoranje, a community situated 30 km north of Port-au-Prince. This commitment will define a template for building housing settlements, as well as a rubric for the inclusion of renewable energy, education, and culture when planning future communities. In addressing questions such as how residents are selected, how land and structures are to be owned and occupied, and how to best achieve a mixed income community, the Exemplar Community will offer best practice lessons. The project is overseen by a committee of prominent Haitians from all sectors of society, receiving advisory support from a university partnership forged between Harvard and MIT University.
