The CIDRR program uses participatory engagement methodologies to support the development of disaster risk reduction plans for marginalized informal communities in North West Department, Haiti. Building on the participatory mapping and prioritization of hazards and vulnerabilities, community infrastructure, including schools and churches, will be retrofitted for hurricane and earthquake resistance, and local builders trained on government standards. Public health promotion campaigns and hygiene education will lead to selection of community construction projects to improve water and sanitation services. Natural hazards will be mitigated through the repair of flood control canals and sewers. These activities will be led by communities and implemented using community resources.
