1 TI PROGRAMME PLAN Introduction 2014 marks the fourth anniversary of the devastating earthquake that resulted in the loss of life of 230,000 people, destruction of homes and infrastructure, and the displacement of 1.5 million people. Following the initial humanitarian response which addressed immediate needs such as water and sanitation provision and shelter, there has been significant progress towards recovery. Thousands of tonnes of rubble have been removed, there has been an important investment in road infrastructure, and importantly more than a million people have been facilitated in leaving the camps and returning to communities, through a range of programmes including rental support, house repair and house construction. There are a number of private sector initiatives including hotel construction and business development, which will aid the broader national economy recovery. Haiti was the poorest country in the western hemisphere prior to the tragedy of the earthquake, and despite progress through humanitarian interventions, the majority of the population live in poverty. Most Haitians remain vulnerable to the cyclical risks that Haiti faces, be that from tropical storms, landslides, flooding or drought. There has been some political progress, with the partnership government of Michel Martelly (President) and Laurent Lemothe (Prime Minister), making some progress with key priorities including facilitating free primary education. The political situation remains tense, as opposition supporters frequently rally supporters who are often the disenfranchised to demonstrate against the government. Political tensions and related insecurity are expected to deepen towards the end of 2013 and the first quarter of 2014 when local and senate elections are due to be held. Whilst the holding of elections is likely to cause instability, not doing so would also increase tension, and bring into question the current leadership as the Senate would need to be dissolved, and opposition supporters claim that this would also render the office of the President unconstitutional. Concern will finalise its five year strategic plan by the end of We will continue to work in extremely poor and complex urban areas within Port au Prince, supporting longer terms development gains, using conflict sensitive approaches that maintain the acceptance of teams in the areas of intervention and reduce the potential negative impact on activities. Concern s integrated programming in the rural areas of La Gonâve and Saut d Eau continue to support improvements in terms of access to water and sanitation and quality education, as well improving livelihood opportunities that increase the resilience of households and communities to risks. Our programmes are implemented in each geographical area in partnership with other NGOs. We work closely with different government ministries to ensure approval and sustainability of the different interventions, and influence incorporation of better practice at meso and macro levels.

Programmes Multi-sector programmes Multi-sector programmes started in La Gonave and in Saut d Eau in and funded by Irish Aid will continue until The graduation methodology (CLM Chemen Lavi Meyo, undertaken in partnership with local NGO, APLAG), continues as part of the multi-sectoral programme on La Gonâve. The 200 participants are expected to graduate in Over the course of 2013, and with the support of a number of specialists, value chains were identified and pilot projects established. Initial work on conservation agriculture, the introduction of improved seed and animal stocks as well as initial work on the sisal value chain will be assessed over the course of 2014, and the initiatives adapted according to lessons learned for further roll out within the target communities. Improving access to safe drinking water and sanitation to the communities West La Gonâve continues. Following a geographical study, water drilling will be undertaken in 2014, to increase access to clean water. In Saut d Eau, work on FIM activities in 2013 included establishing pilot conservation agriculture plots and the introduction of improved quality seed and animal varieties, similar to work on La Gonâve will see the expansion of these activities to other members of the community. The education team will continue work with the 12 original schools, and the 18 other schools where work began in the second semester of 2013, towards improving the quality of education, using the USAID/Total designed curriculum, that Concern has supported the introduction of in these rural schools. Progress of students towards literacy is being measured on an annual basis using the Early Grade Reading Assessment tool. In addition to the extensive teacher training and accompaniment

8 component, work will be accelerated in 2014 with the Parent Teacher Associations supporting agreed changes and increasing accountability. FIM: Following initial work strengthening the capacity of local fishermen and associations, the EUfinanced Small-scale fisheries value chain development on La Gonâve Island will extend support to the target group with support on the use and management of newly acquired fishing equipment. Work will also focus on improving other aspects of the value chain, including processing, storage and access to the market. The EU-financed Mango and Avocado Value Chain project in rural Saut d Eau was extended to June Following a long period of discussion, an agreement was reached with the national authorities responsible for roads and, with the support of the project, they are undertaking work on a road to one of the most inaccessible areas of the commune. This is a key component of the intervention and will greatly increase the access of local producers and associations to the regional and national market. Further work is being undertaken with partner organisations to increase the capacity of producers and local associations in terms of production, storage and marketing. Following the conclusion of this intervention, further follow-up support will be provided as part of the value chain work on the multisectoral intervention, in order to further increase sustainability of the project outcomes. EU and Kellogg Foundation, funded Community Tourism Project, will enter its final full year (concluding January 2015). Significant progress was made in 2013 regarding the community involvement in the tourism sector, as well as with improvements on a key road within the town. Following conclusion of pilot bed and breakfast units, the final facilities will be constructed and made available to visitor in Designs have been concluded for the tourism centre, which will be constructed over the first semester of 2014, and rehabilitation of the identified tourist sites will be undertaken. Work will also continue with the capacity building of the local associations supporting the tourism industry and the roll out of the tourism plan for Saut d Eau. The integrated programme Support the reconstruction and redevelopment of Grand Ravine neighbourhood is being implemented in partnership with two other NGOs. Initial work in 2013 included establishing the community platform following elections and liaison with relevant government departments. Work on the urban development plan with the identification of priority projects is expected to be concluded in the first quarter of 2014 and following approval by the national authorities, some of the key re-zoning and infrastructural work will be undertaken. A market survey is also planned, following which training and business support activities will commence, aimed at creating business and employment opportunities. Plans have been agreed for the construction of a water storage and supply system which will commence in Equality, HIV and AIDS and DRR HIV and AIDS is addressed through sexual health education in schools, which additionally aims to support a reduction in the incidence of early pregnancy. Further opportunities for broadening this work in 2014 include work with communities in our urban work, and creating opportunities for information dissemination and discussion.

9 DRR and increasing resilience are central to all the work of Concern in Haiti, and continues to be important given the exposure to frequent natural and man-made hazards. Risk analysis is part of all programme design, and appropriately influences the prevention and risk mitigation work in both the multi-sectoral and other more specific programmes, looking at issues from soil erosion through to cholera. Protection remains an important component of Concern s work in Haiti, with violence against children being addressed in the education programme, and teams working to raise awareness on SGBV, as well as supporting the referral of victims to competent agencies. Forced eviction has been a significant protection issue in 2013 and this is set to continue. Concern will continue to work with other agencies to lobby for the application of legal processes, and will also include risk of eviction as a key criterion when designing a new Return to Neighbourhoods programme. 3.
