About The AIAPrograms & Initiatives
The Haiti Summit was held one day after the anniversary of the 2010 earthquake. This working session allowed participants to hear from organizations on the ground already making a difference and to focus on solutions to assist in the Haiti Re-build. Collaborative efforts among established non-profits, government agencies, and NGOs helped participants identify opportunities in Haiti for design assistance teams, disaster assistance, building assessments, resources and other programs.
Confirmed participating organizations included Architecture for Humanity, United States Green Building Council, Public Architecture, National Organization of Minority Architects, and the American Red Cross.
Results of the Haiti Summit will be shared later in 2011.
Participants heard first-hand accounts of how this historic city has and is rebounding from natural and man-made disasters. Local and national success stories were shared, as were the challenges still facing the Crescent City. This program also featured renowned local speakers and a panel case study on New Orleans,
