Final Resolution, International Forum on the Crisis of Housing in Haiti

May 30, 2011

We, organizations of survivors living in internally displaced persons’ [IDP] camps, as well as social and grassroots organizations, assembled for three days (May 19-21, 2011) at Fany Villa in Port-au-Prince to reflect on the problem of housing within Haiti’s longstanding crisis. Following an exchange around the theme “January 12: Nightmares, Reality and Dreams,” we state:

1. We commend the initiative taken by FRAKKA [the Force for Reflection and Action in Housing] and other partners to host this forum, which allowed us to hear the testimonies of many camp residents and to exchange views on housing and other issues being faced in the camps. This exchange allowed us to better understand the root of the problems we face and to issue resolutions and an action plan that will guide our efforts during 2011 - 2012.

Disaster Football - When GO's and NGO's Play "Disaster Soccer" - Who Loses Wins

submitted by Stuart Leiderman

here's the article, "disaster football," that I wrote recently with Dr. Castor,
and then we gave it to Le Nouvelliste newspaper for publication. French first,
then the English. surprisingly, they accepted it, and it appeared on the 11th.
we're starting to get responses, and he intends to use it in conversations with
the new administration about how to improve relations between government and the
NGO community. we'll see where it leads.

also attaching my original NGO newsletter from Oct'10 that's due for a second
edition, especially now with so many new characters on stage. you might have
some ideas for themes/topics. or an idea for an MPHISE Phase I or Phase II
report. power of the press, and all that...

'best,

Stuart
