Is Haiti Building Back Better?
The slogan “Build Back Better” has come to symbolize the commitment to help Haiti’s government and people address the roots of poverty and instability. Yet, in the nine months since the January 12 earthquake, reconstruction efforts have stalled, and Haitians now face a new task of holding national elections on November 28.
How will Haitians and the international community respond to this dual challenge? Former Haitian Prime Minister Michèle Pierre-Louis discusses these issues and her views on Haiti’s future.
