Haiti - Humanitarian : 550,000 people need immediate stabilization
The Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) indicates that nearly 550,000 people affected, with particular emphasis on women, need immediate stabilization of livelihoods, access to credit for communities, and to help the rapid recovery of the local economy.

Several partners created 3,238 emergency jobs to clean up the irrigation infrastructure in order to
facilitate the watering of the canals in Petit-Goâve ; Helvetas initiated cash for work activities for relocation of ravines and repair of rural tracks, and cleaning of irrigation canals. Some 700 family members in Belle-Anse in Sud and Chapelle and Verrettes in Artibonite benefited from this initiative ; Action Aid donated 10,000 gourdes to 500 women in Grand’Anse for reviving their small businesses.

An agreement of $50,000 was signed with the Municipality of Apricots within the framework of the Partnership between UNDP and UNWomen. The agreement engages women and empowers them in the post-hurricane response by creating 900 jobs in emergency clearing of irrigation and infrastructure to facilitate drainage of sewage and storm water to mitigate the risk of flooding and sludge flow.

Two Communal Rehabilitation Plans are prepared by the Commune of Dame Marie. The plans are designed to guide humanitarian and development efforts in the post-hurricane response. The objective is to optimize the invested funds and maximize the deployed technical assistance. This technical support is thought to be a first step towards the development of the Communal Development Plan (PCD), which will define the orientations of spatial planning over the longer term.

UNDP carried out cash-for-work activities in connection with the cleaning and unblocking of roads in Dame Marie and Anse d'Hainault.

The Early Recovery sector has also reported 6,500 beneficiaries from the “cash for work” program related to the cleaning of debris in Sud and Grand’Anse.
