Haiti - Politic : The new Deputy Special Representative of the UN in Haiti met with PM Henry
Thursday, June 30, the Swedish Ulrika Richardson, the new Deputy Special Representative of the Secretary General of the United Nations, for the United Nations Integrated Office in Haiti (BINUH), Resident Coordinator and Humanitarian Coordinator in Haiti (replaces French Bruno Lemarquis who has just completed his mission) met with the Prime Minister a.i. Ariel Henry, for the first time since her arrival in Haiti the previous week.

During their conversation Ms. Richardson outlined her vision to strengthen UN support by working "hand in hand with national authorities and civil society to address the structural and systemic causes of development deficits in Haiti."

It should be recalled that the United Nations is currently working with the Haitian authorities on the drafting of a new cooperation framework for sustainable development, which will define the way in which the United Nations, the Haitian Government and partners will work together over the next five years in development, humanitarian and political fields.

Richardson quoting a Creole expression "Piti piti zwazo fè nich li" (little by little the bird makes its nest) said she wanted to spend time learning about the challenges facing the country, but also its rich and beautiful culture.
