“Pour une reconstruction durable”, Port-au-Prince, 3-5 December 2014

The challenges of learning during crisis and post-crisis periods were central to discussions during the conference, “Pour une reconstruction durable”, co-organised by the Agence Nationale de la Recherche (ANR) and Fondation de France on 3-5 December 2014 in Port-au-Prince. Groupe URD took part in the event and shared lessons learned from 4 years running its Haiti Observatory. A broad range of topics were covered over the three days: statistical analysis of the impact of the earthquake, gender issues, mental health, dealing with amputations in the long term and their human and economic impacts, agricultural recovery, innovation in the area of rainwater storage cisterns, earthquake protection standards for rural housing, the use of satellite imagery to map damages, etc. There was also very interesting content from research by ANR and Fondation de France which will be available on a dedicated website soon (address not yet available).
