Haiti : Two years after the earthquake

The response to the 2010 earthquake in Haiti has been one of the most complicated the world has coped with. The involvement of the International community has been unprecedented as many initiatives, the UNDP reports, have been and are still being carried out.
2011 has been  not only marked by political and administrative transition but also by the transition from the humanitarian to the recovery phase. As UNDP states in its report 'Haiti rebuilds', although the recovery phase will still take some years  a series of results have been already observed  over the last year, 2011, such as  the 50% of the debris removed, more than 300,000 jobs created and 2,000 meters of gabion walls erected.
Even if early international enthusiasm has faded, thousands of volunteers from civil and international organizations still work to meet the ultimate goal:  to reach yet better living conditions than there were before the earthquake.
