Study on new trades in post-earthquake context in the metropolitan region of Port-au-Prince (Haïti)
May-October 2014

This study analyzed the employment market in formal and informal sectors in urban areas; developed a typology of employments and training, and skilled and unskilled, informal and formal jobs; and clarified the current and future needs for the supervision of the vocational training sector.

The Haiti Observatory realised a study on new trades in post earthquake context in the metropolitan region of Port-au-Prince. It aimed, amongst other things, to:

  • Provide an analysis of the employment market in formal and informal sectors, and to present the pattern of professional trainings in Port-au-Prince and its immediate suburbs.
  • Identify the factors and innovating characteristics of the employment market and of the professional training offer market while considering a gender analysis.
  • Identify the potential current sectors that favorise the creation of wealth for men and women, young or not.
