STORYLINE
UN Deputy Secretary-General Amina Mohammed said the contribution made at the pledging conference for the reconstruction in Haiti’s southern Peninsula “demonstrate that the international community is committed to a new approach to working with the Government and the people” of Haiti.

Speaking to reporters Wednesday (16 Feb) evening in Port-au-Prince, Mohammed said the UN remains “fully engaged in helping Haiti through this difficult period, working productively and in partnership with the Government, but crucially with the Government in the lead at all times, and the impact of these funds in the lives of people.”

The Deputy Secretary-General had welcomed the fact that close to 600 million USD was pledged, surpassing the immediate target for the conference.

Mohammed stressed that the UN is committed to supporting the Government’s response, “whether in a post-disaster earthquake context or more broadly in its development plans and commitment to reach the SDG targets.”

She said the Government-led international event is a “good example of the strong leadership played by the Government.” She noted that the Government presented its five-year reconstruction and recovery plan for the Southern Peninsula, known as the PRIPS.

She said this is the action plan to carry out the reconstruction and recovery goals as identified in the Post-Disaster Needs Assessment or PDNA. She added, “The PDNA was another Government-led initiative which was completed within just six weeks of the earthquake, and we all consider this a remarkable achievement.”

Mohammed said, “Today, the Government also presented the Multi-Partner Trust-Fund, which the United Nations was asked to help develop. This fund will ensure that donors' funds are disbursed in a responsible, effective and considered manner, to bring the maximum possible transparency and impact in the lives of Haitians.”

The Deputy Secretary-General underlined that the humanitarian situation is still very troubling in many parts of the country. She said there are significant unmet needs, with an estimated 4.9 million people still needing humanitarian assistance in 2022.
