This report examines Haiti’s legal framework for facilitating and regulating international disaster assistance in the light of the IDRL Guidelines and the experience with the international response to the 2010 earthquake. It sets out recommendations for how to prepare for potential future disasters.
The IFRC’s International Disaster Response Laws, Rules and Principles (IDRL) Programme seeks to reduce human vulnerability by promoting legal preparedness for disasters. It works in three areas: (1) collaborating with National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies and other partners to offer technical assistance to governments on disaster law issues; (2) building the capacity of National Societies and other stakeholders on disaster law; and (3) dissemination, advocacy and research.
