This project aims to close remaining camps where displaced people live in Haiti in a sustainable and safe way to improve their living conditions. The project has two components: (1) the relocation of 7,000 families with subsidies for housing support; and (2) the integration of three camps in urban areas, benefiting 1,500 families (about 5,100 people). Project activities include: (1) the registration of displaced people living in camps, monitoring of the identified housing and payment of subsidies to families; (2) a support service (psychosocial and medical); (3) the establishment of awareness workshops and training activities on health and housing rights; (4) technical and administrative support on the status of the targeted camps for urban integration; (5) development of community plans for urbanisation; (6) improvement of secure physical infrastructure; (7) implementation of water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) projects; and (8) creation of income generating activities.

Results & Indicators

Expected Results

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) all relocated internally displaced persons (IDP), women, men, boys and girls, equally benefit from improved and safe living conditions; and (2) formalized urban integration solutions for targeted IDP sites in Haiti.

Achieved Results

Results achieved at the end of the project in June 2018 : (1) the project contributed to reducing the displaced population in camps to 3%. A total of seven camps were closed and 8,679 families (28,500 people) relocated; (2) two camps were integrated in urban areas; (3) the registration of families has been completed; 12,745 home inspections of the identified housing were carried out and 7,942 follow-up visits to relocated households confirmed that their living conditions had improved. All relocated households received a housing grant to choose a rental in the Port-au-Prince area, or to return to living with their family in another region; 2,259 extremely vulnerable households were provided with additional aid (hygiene kits, lamps, mosquito nets, mattresses and baby kits); 982 beneficiaries received medical insurance to access additional medical assistance; (4) a support unit (psychosocial and medical) for assistance to victims of violence has delivered services to 2,259 women, and 100% of the cases of violence reported were referred to the unit; (5) throughout the project, the relocated households received support and training on health and housing rights; (6) local authorities approved the formalized integration of two camps in urban area; (7) two plans for urban planning were approved but one plan approval was subsequently reversed by the newly elected city council; (8) the strengthening of infrastructures, solar lighting, awareness raising workshops on protection services and community activities promoting social cohesion were completed; (9) water management systems were strengthened and awareness campaigns on hygiene practices were carried out; and (10) the project encouraged beneficiaries to invest the last installment of their housing grant in a revenue-generating activity once in their new resettlement to help families benefit from a financial stability that allows them to renew their lease.
