First time viewer (1 Jun 18)
If you are viewing my notes for the first time, where these fit into the big picture:It is now a year and a half after the devastating earthquake in Haiti, whose survivors living conditions grow ever more desperate, while little progress is apparent with any permanentsolutions. Most all reports, on Haiti, mention the serious problem of land ownership, without explaining the problem. Here I try to explain the problem, mass confusion about it,and suggest ways to solve it. It is a problem common to many developing nations, broughtto global light by the disaster.
Less than 5% of Haiti’s land is legally registered as to who owns it.
It takes upwards of a year to research who is the legal owner of any land.
Haitian court system ignores land disputes,usually solved by whoever has the mostpowerful thug army, often uses elements of the UN military, and Haitian police,many of whom are illiterate.
Over a year ago, President Preval said land needsto be designated which can be usedfor replacement housing, then the government will condemn it, and can compensatethe legitimate owners, if they prove that they are in fact the legitimate owners.
