On the 12th of January 2010, the earth shook in Haiti: review of 5 years of learning support since the earthquake
After the muffled sound (goudou goudou) of the earthquake and the plumes of dust where buildings collapsed came the pain and suffering, then the mourning, the struggle for survival and the attempt to return to a certain kind of normality. Groupe URD accompanied the aid process from the end of January 2010, accompanying national and international programmes via a series of real-time evaluations, and iterative, sector-based and cross-sector evaluations, before setting up an Observatory of humanitarian and reconstruction aid in 2012. The results of our activities in connection with the Observatory can be found on this site. A future Newsletter will review some of our projects since the earthquake.
