T-Shelter Haiti Projects v 3.6

T-shelters are Temporary “solutions” barely superior to tents and tarps, not actually rebuilding Haiti back better. We are very interested in which NGOs are doing this, where in Haiti, quality of the effort, and how many people are being accommodated.

Bear in mind that T-shelters are Temporary “solutions” barely superior to tents and tarps,not actually rebuilding Haiti back better. I believe that when an institution builds buildings which kill people or place their lives at grave risk, or you approve doing so, you share afiduciary responsibility for their deaths, even though the Gov of Haiti might not hold youaccountable. I have contacts who do not share this opinion, who instead believe that in theabsence of any standards imposed by the government, anything goes. This difference of opinion is the source of a lot of criticism for my research notes.UN cluster primarily in charge of Transitional Housing solutions in Haiti:https://sites.google.com/site/shelterhaiti2010/For people who wish to propose housing solutions for use in Haiti, where does abovecluster want them to go, to offer their solutions?

I seek to give credit wherever possible to my sources of info, so anyone who wants to pursue any threadfurther, has ample opportunity to fact check, and drill down deeper.

It started its life as several meg, due to imported charts, which have since been converted into simple text,making overall size much smaller.
