Knowledge Note

The Haiti Structural Assessment Program, financed by GFDRR, is designed to assist the Government of Haiti in its post-earthquake recovery and reconstruction efforts by reinforcing the role of the Government’s Ministry of Public Works, Transport, and Communication (Ministère des Travaux Publics, Transports et Communications) as the key reconstruction coordinating entity. The program is achieving this objective through enhancing existing capacity. In addition, the program supports the creation of a Technical Unit for Building Assessments and Construction Norms, responsible for the coordination and execution of a public infrastructure assessment campaign and the development of an accurate national database of all physical damages. The program’s focus includes strategic and technical advice, capacity building and training in proven building assessment methodologies.
