“You can see opportunities in awful situations”.
The view of one senior man from the UN on the rebuilding of Haiti, as politicians from around the world gathered to talk about it.
There’s already talk of renewing the country – not merely rebuilding it – so it can resist the ravages of earthquakes and hurricanes in future.
The Prime Minister wants rebuilding to be “by the Haitians, for the Haitians“, although they won’t be able to pay for it on their own.
So what sort of Haiti could we see in ten years time – and how does Haiti get there? Is it up to the rest of the world to fund it? And who should take the lead?
