A possible future for Haiti

Submitted by nicko2 on 19 June 2017

For the first time since 2010 Haiti's government can move beyond a single-minded focus on reconstruction to devise a new long-term development strategy for the poorest country in the Americas.

One source of fresh thinking comes from the Copenhagen Consensus Centre (CCC), an NGO, which completed a study of potential policies in Haiti. With C$2.5m ($1.9m) from the Canadian government, the CCC commissioned dozens of experts to score and rank a wide range of proposed initiatives by their return on investment. After a year of research, the CCC presented its findings to Mr Moïse in Port-au-Prince last month.
