Third year commemoration of the Haiti earthquake

On the occasion of the third anniversary of the earthquake that hit Haiti on the 12 January 2010 the EU reaffirmed its long-term commitment to the Haitian people in a joint statement by High-Representative and Vice-President of the European Commission, Catherine Ashton, Commissioners Kristalina Georgieva and Andris Piebalgs.
Altogether, 85% of the €522 million funds promised by the European Commission in 2010 have been committed until now, EU humanitarian aid benefiting  5 million people, meaning every second Haitian.
Despite the progress made, implementation of development assistance to Haiti over the last three years has been particularly challenging as political instability has hampered coordination efforts and implementation of development programmes. Recent events like tropical storm Isaac and Hurricane Sandy make the recovery of Haiti even more difficult and highlight yet again the need to increase Haitians' resilience to natural disasters.
