Pictured, volunteer brigadiers training in first aide, rescue, and rubble clearance to prepare them for future natural disasters in #Haiti.⁠ ⁠ Sunday marked the 10 year anniversary of the earthquake in Haiti. ⁠ ⁠ Our team in Haiti has supported:⁠ ⁠ 🔴 #Cash4Work where communities received pay for removing over 1 million cubic meters of debris⁠ 🔴Over 240,000 people received wages , 40% of them women.⁠ 🔴 Housing and lifelines rebuilt. As a result, one thousand families in six temporary shelters returned to their neighborhoods.⁠ 🔴11,000 families have been relocated to rebuilt areas which have been assessed with lower risks of natural hazards.⁠ 🔴 Four kilometers of roads and five community centers have been rehabilitated⁠ 🔴 Continued support for the creation of small and micro-enterprises contributing to the recovery of the local economy.⁠ 🔴Continued support to the government’s disaster risk reduction planning, emergency preparedness trainings, technology, and tools.⁠ ⁠ Haiti is one of the world’s most vulnerable countries to #ClimateChange and disaster risks, according to the 2020 Global Climate Risk Index. In the last 20 years, Haiti ranked the third most affected country to climate risks in the past 20 years. Extreme poverty, deadlier annual hurricane seasons, and extreme weather conditions such as drought followed by devastating flash floods threaten food security, health, and security.⁠ ⁠ 📷: UNDP Haiti/Moliere Solon⁠ ⁠ #UNDP #UN #Haiti #Haiti10YearsOn #HaitiEarthquake #BuildBackBetter #ClimateAction #BuildPeace #SDG16 #SDGs #GlobalGoals #PNUDHaiti⁠
