(re) Construire en Haïti, du séisme de 2010 à l’ouragan Irma en 2017

Résumé : This book presents a summary of the results of the work carried out by CRAterre in collaboration with many Haitian and international organizations since the 2010 earthquake and then, in response to several cyclones, to help the people of Haiti to find a fundamental right: housing . In order to ensure taht the most positive aspects of the local constructive cultures be valued in reconstruction programs, it was suggested to adopt a specific approach starting with a process of identifying needs and priorities, local capacities to rebuild by making the best use of knowledge, know-how, or the traditional modes of effective management or organization. The assumption is that by doing so, it is possible to quickly help people repair, improve or rebuild their habitat and, at the same time, build capacity for a continuation of the process in the long run. During the process, new ideas have emerged and confidence has developed towards other ambitions, such as building on floors or elevations of existing buildings. Little by little enlargements or even spontaneous innovations were revealed to us, concrete proofs that one of the hypotheses, that of the reproducibility by the populations themselves of solutions to their reach, both technically and financially, was not an Utopia . As time went on, Haiti unfortunately dwas again affected by hurricanes, first in 2012, with Isaac and Sandy, then in 2016, more importantly, by Matthew, and more recently by Irma in 2017. These events were an opportunity to continue the work and to refine both the methodologies and technical solutions proposed, and to start structuring a national network of skills.
