Haitian earthquake relief reaches impasse

This report by the Haiti Grassroots Watch and two students from the "Laboratoire de Journalisme at the State University of Haiti," seeks to identify why reconstruction has not started in downtown Port-au-Prince, the location hit hardest by the earthquake in 2010. Numerous meetings and discussions have been held, but no plan of actions seems to have been enforced. The journalists found a "lack of transparency, lack of coordination, rivalry and sometimes even outright disagreement," which has resulted in thousands of families still living under tarps and in terrible conditions.
