Articles on Haiti Rebuilding Effort

I wanted to share a couple of articles that describe the challenges of the Haiti rebuilding process.

The first is from Lindsey Coates of The Huffington post on how determining land rights is a critical and time-consuming first step before constructing transitional or replacement shelters for survivors:

The second is a longer article by Deborah Sontag at the NYTimes that describes the challenges of rebuilding in greater detail:

I'll highlight one statistic from the NYTimes article: "It would take three to five years to remove all the debris from Haiti if 1,000 or more trucks worked daily."
