National policies and plans

The Action Plan for National Recovery and Development was initiated after the devasting earthquake that struck Haiti on 12 January 2010. The plan is divided into two phases. The first is in the immediate future, which lasts 18 months and covers the end of the emergency period and includes preparation for projects to generate genuine renewal. It aims to relaunch economic, governmental, and social activity, reduce Haiti’s vulnerability to natural disasters, and put Haiti back on the road to development. The second stage has a time horizon of ten years, allowing it to take into account three programming cycles of the National Strategy for Growth and Poverty Reduction.
