Resiliency Planning After Haiti's 2010 Earthquake
About This Project
After the 2010 earthquake rocked the island nation, Port-au-Prince’s port facilities were severely damaged. As a result, the Port international du Cap-Haïtien became a vital artery for delivery of relief supplies.
While damage in the North was not as severe, Cap-Haïtien officials saw it as a perfect opportunity to start planning for a more resilient future. In 2011, D Squared traveled to the coastal community to develop a plan that would target renewable energy (via coastal wind & sugarcane waste), sustainable housing solutions and a low impact agricultural platform to lessen the burden of imported foodstuffs.
