Haiti Earthquake, The: Impacts, Responses and Vulnerability

Synopsis
This resource looks at the impact of the 2010 Haiti earthquake. The film first sets out Haiti’s historical context to explain why the earthquake’s impact was so devastating. Then, using footage filmed straight after the 2010 earthquake and in the three years following, the resource explores the primary and secondary impacts of the quake. The DVD then looks at a range of short and long term responses, including projects aimed at: reducing the outbreak of cholera, improving the housing situation, strengthening livelihoods and supporting good governance.
