Haiti earthquake 2010: two-year progress report


This two-year progress report provides a chapter on disaster preparedness and risk reduction in Haiti. It states that despite several challenges and thanks to the efforts of Red Cross and Red Crescent disaster preparedness and risk reduction programmes across the country, Haiti was significantly better prepared for the 2011 hurricane season that it had been in the previous year. It further asserts that while the vulnerability of both earthquake and non-earthquake-affected communities remains high, the work undertaken in both 2010 and 2011 by the Red Cross Red Crescent will ensure that the resilience of these communities can continue to grow.
