UN Official Urges New Approach on Haiti’s Internally Displaced Persons – Caribbean Journal

It is time to move from a “largely humanitarian approach to a development-based drive in Haiti,” a United Nations official said this week.Chaloka Beyani, the UN’s special rapporteur on the human rights of internally displaced persons, said it was “high time to focus on a development approach for the achievement of durable solutions for the displaced.”“Durable solutions are reached only when the needs related to displacement no longer exist, which is medium to long term complex development led process for all IDPs and not just those living in camps or sites,” he said following a week-long visit to Haiti. via Caribbean Journal
