International Donor Conference on Haiti reconstruction aid - Livestream event

This livestream event is now over. You can watch a video recording of the event.

As Ministers, delegates and aid organizations meet in New York this week to discuss the reconstruction effort for Haiti, six NGOs are livestreaming from a side event, on Tuesday, 30 March, 1:30pm EST. Our aim is to ensure that discussions at the Conference are informed by the voices of Haitians.

The people of Haiti say they want jobs to be their path toward rebuilding. In a survey of over 1700 people carried out by an independent Haitian polling consultant (funded by Oxfam International), Haitians' most pressing needs are jobs, schools, and homes.

What Haitians need most

Priority needs % Mentioned
Jobs 26.0
Schooling 21.8
Shelter 10.1
Support to local production 8.2
Environment 6.1

Haitians are speaking loud and clear: they want to start working for the reconstruction of their country. Ensuring that the people of Haiti can return to work must be at the top of the list for the New York conference and beyond. Haitians are not expecting charity; they want to get jobs, to educate their kids and to make sure they have a roof over their heads at night.
