IFRC Haiti Learning Conference
Hasta: Abril 27, 2012 - 5:00 pm
Port-au-Prince / April 26 – 27, 2012. Purpose: To capitalize on the significant Red Cross Red Crescent investment in Haiti to date and the investment yet to be made over the next five years.
The Red Cross Red Crescent collectively raised 1.2 billion CHF in response to the January 2010 earthquake. As of September 30, 2011, 48% or 568 million CHF had been spent. The conference will examine what we think we have learned from the Red Cross Red Crescent Haiti operation thus far and assess how well this has influenced both policy and practice. As we are only at the halfway mark, in terms of collective expenditures, the conference will focus on what we have yet to learn in order to improve Red Cross Red Crescent response and recovery approaches in future disasters.
