(The factory values the syringes, for accounting purposes, at around $300,000.) As will be explainéd by the Governor in a letter to the Fund offering the donation, his Government feels profound compassion for the people of Haiti and is convinced that the most effective means of delivering ‘humanitarian assistance to Haiti is through Presidents Clinton and Bush. Will you please see to it that the Governor receives a letter of acknowledgment from the Fund upon receipt of the aid? For the sake of clarity, the funds and materials being offered are solely from the State Government and are not i part of a donation by the Federal Goverment of Nigeria and would not affect the Federal Goverument’s decision to donate to the Haitian cause or otherwise provide assistance.

They are saying option 1 is the most common because that is the way it is in all other such trust funds. The WB or UN would normally develop fairly large projects the programs/projects that a trust fund does (the building a bridge example that the Canadian gave as an example). So that's his frame of reference and that of most donors to the trust fund. I think the goal from here should be to figure out a way in which the HRC or others can be the ories proposing certain projects (which will often be quite small) that could then be developed and implemented with the minimum of fees. Since I imagine you'll want to be able to start doing that right away -- before the IHRC has the staff capacity to do project development, monitoring, Supervision, etc -- one idea that struck me this morning would be to work with the IDB on the #2 option a bit and see if they'd be willing to set up some sort of smaller projects facility that would handle such projects financed by the HRF and for which IOB would absorb the costs, thus sparing any fees. This goes beyond what they've agreed to do so far, as you note. Just a thought off the cuff, but I've been wracking my brain since yesterday to see how to get what the President wants (the ability to have a responsive ability to get smaller projects like the fish farm implemented quickly with a minimum of fees), but in a way can that can be realistically implemented quickly within the structure of a multi-donor trust fund that donors, WB Board etc would be comfortable with in accountability terns.

In the case of ID8, for the projects we will be presenting to the’ HIRC, these costs are already covered by our own budget (both for preparation and implementation) . 1. In case the HIRC should ask for HRF to supplement our own grants (increasing the size of the Program), we will charge no additional: fees to céver our already covered costs. 2. In the‘hipothetical (rare?) case the HIRC should ask us to prepare a new Program we have not planned (or have little previous experience in), then we would need to seek cost recovery.

Sunday AM works, Also to be sure you saw: PORT-AU-PRINCE Hais - Prime Minister Jean-Max Bellerive says the Haitian government will appropriate land to build temportcyeimp for enthquake victims. The decison, announced in az interview with The Associated Press, is potentially explosive in a country where a small elite owns most of the land in and eround the capital. ‘That elite, a traditionally corrupting force in Haitian politics, has the power to bring dowa the government. ‘The government owns some land but not enough, Bellerive ssid in an interview Thursday, meaning he has no choice but to take over private texan. He would not say how much land will be approptiated, But international aid groups say hundreds of hectares (acres) are needed to get quake victims out of overcrowded makeshift camps sprawled all over the devastated capital Bernard Fils-Airne, a businessman, property owner and president of the American Chamber of Commerce in Haiti, said he was not aware of anyone in the business community being approached by the government about land. He said the issue would need to be treated cautiously. “Land is one of our very scarce resources and an issue that has undeslined many political conflicts ia Haid since | independence," Fils-Aime said, adding: "You don't want to create more conflict.” ‘Aid agencies have criticized the government for dragging its feet in building camps for the displaced. \ "The temaporary camps where people have congregated ate fast becoming over-crowded slums," the relief agency ‘Oxfam International wamed last week. "The government .. eeds to clanfy whether there is government land available ot if it needs to confiscate private land instead. These decisions aced to be taken quickly." ‘The Haitian government hes seemed to operste on a slower timetable. On Fuidey, the economist leading « {government emergency commission on shelter held a news conference, saying government panels will make decisions in three to four weeks, and that the homes will be built in five or six months. In the meantime, Chatles Clermont said, people in the private sector have offered to build 20,000 to 30,000 temporary homes on private land and, presumably, sell them to the government. Some 1.2 million Haitians were left homeless by the Jan. 12 quake, about half of them in the capital where about a third of Hait's nearly 10 milion people are concentaated along with the government and almost all industry. ‘Camps have sprung up on every bit of available land school and university grounds, public gardens, a golf course, the central Champ de Mars plaza or simply on sidewalks. But the camps, many made of litle more than bed sheets ‘propped up by poles, have lite sanitation, and eatly sporadic downpours already are adding to the misery of their residents. ‘Health workers warn of disease in the camps something Hits aready strained health system can hardly handle. ‘Relief agencies are working against the clock to find temporary settlements for the homeless before the spring rainy season. Haitian law provides for the government to seize land as long asi is in the public interest and the owness ate ficly UNCLASSIFIED U.S. Department of State Case No. F-2015-15707 Doc No. C06085032 Date: 10/11/2016 UNCLASSIFIED U.S. Department of State Case No. F-2018-15707 Doc No. C06065032 Date: 10/11/2016 compensated, said lawyer Benissoit Jude Detournel, who handles property disputes. "There hes to bes just and equitable indemnity, taking into account the mazket value ofthe property," Detournel stid. He said setting a price is difficult now in the quake's aftermath, : ‘The government has appropriated land in the past without conflict to build a wider road on the western outskits of Port-au-Prince four years ago, to protect undergrourid water aquifers 14 years ago and to construct government buildings in downtown Port-au-Prince in the 1970s, said Jean-Andre Victor, an agronomist who worked on a failed government attempt :o survey land ownership in 2003. But Detourne said his frm stl is litigating for owners of land expropriated by the government acer the Port-au- Prince sirport.in the 1980s to build «free-trade zone of factories that churn out T-shirts and other products gold in the United States. Compensation was paid at the time, but more people showed up later demanding payment, he said, because squatters, corrupt notaries and judges often means multiple individuals can hold tite to the same properties. ‘Detournel said his firm tikes few land dispute cases "because you can end up deed, or with someone casting & Voodoo spell on you." Bellerive is clearly aware ofthe stakes. ‘He told the AP on Thursday, in a separate interview, that the government could fall as politict! opponents capitalize on its inability to respond strongly to the Jan. 12 earthquake. ‘Camp-dwellers are also offering resistance. Many don't want to move out of the debris-choked capital, which would separate them from family, jobs and aid. An Oxfam survey of 110 people showed less than a third of them willing to move out of the capital ‘Meanwhile, those camps are becoming ever mote miserable. Leonel Martine, 2 42-year-old electrician, said alight ovemight shower Friday left his camp in ankle-deep water and - soaked the mattress he shares with his wife, his daughter and two grandchildren, . “My wife spent the night standing, holding the baby,” he said.

Katz . PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti -- Haitian Prime Minister Jean-Max Bellerive said Thursday his government could collapse because political opponents are capitalizing on its inability to address the staggering fallout of the Jan. 12 , earthquake. Bellesive, who has been more visible than President Rene Preval since the deadly quake, told The Associated Press in 2 40-minute interview that he has two immediate fears - how the 1.2 million people living in the streets will deal ‘with the impending rainy season and the danger of political divisiveness. "You have the feeling that everyone is trying to do his litle part and accuse the other one of not doing his part,” Bellerive said, including Haitian politicians, international groups and the business community. "Everyone is trying to ‘create conflict when we have the same enemy right now: Its misery, i's disaster.” Bellerive had been prime minister for two months when the earthquake struck, have replaced a predecessor ousted ‘mainly by senators from Preval's party. He isthe sixth person to hold the post since 200 in this politically unstable nation. Preval took power undér a U.N. sanctioned election after two years of a US-backed interim government that Billed the void after the 2004 ouster of former President Jean-Bertrand Aristide. Bellerive, an economist whose prior responsibilities included coordinating international sid for this deeply poor nation, said he understood csticism that Hait’s leaders did not do enough to help in the days after the magnitude-7 carthguake killed 200,000 people and leveled neatly every government ministry along with 38 percent ofthe capita "Because we didn't have any administration we could not give the services the population is entiled to, So they say there isn't any government," he said. Since the quake, Bellerive said, he has spent sleepless nights worrying about impending rains - and ther threat to cause landslides and floods that are constant killers in this Caribbean nation. Fe std he has struggled to Gnd solutions for those displaced by the quake. Most are sillia she sets, tying to cope with poor sanitation and not enough food. : ‘Then there is the potential for a constitutional storm. A legislative election scheduled for this month has been canceled, threatening parliament’ legitimacy. A presidential election planned for later in the year is aso in question, with Preval's term expiring in 12 months. Ina country where peaceful transitions to:power are rare, that could give opportunities to political rivals, Bellerive said. "am not asking for a truce, but I believe we have a serious problem that we have to face sight now 9s nation,” Bellerive said. "The government is not able to resolve this situation alone.” UNCLASSIFIED U.S. Department of State Case No. F-2015-15707 Doc No. C08085032 Date: 10/11/2016 UNCLASSIFIED U.S. Department of State Case No. F-2015-15707 Doc No. CO6065046 Date: 10/11/2016 From: Reynoso, Julissa Ser Sunday, January 27, 2019 13:49 AM te “amitabh Desai Cunis, Meghann A; Abedin, Huma; Valenzuela, Arturo A Subject: Re: ‘Ami: we are leaving this afternoon, Feel free to call me to discuss Thanks.

The September meeting brings world leaders together to work on the world's problems, . Ina news conference conducted by phone this week, Clinton described how the student meeting s designed to be similar to the September meeting. More than 1,000 students will attend from ail 50 states and 75 countries and hear {rom speakers such as former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, Twitter co-founder Biz Stone and The Daily Show's Jon Stewart, They/t also get a chance to network, organize and work together on projects of their own choosing. "Students are ‘more connected online than ever before," Ciinton said. “its obvious they need to be organized on the ground.” ‘Anative of Moses Lake, Isherwood — who is a first-year medical student in he Universily of Washington's Spokane program — is working on her medical-records idea to help clinic workers in Halt keep better track of patients’ health Fistory.

"If you truly believe in what you're doing, you make it happén and are willing to sacrifice fori," she said, ‘She's gotten thousands of dollars in donations from Moses Lake residents —in particu, from middle-school students whose classrooms she has visited to tell about her trips to Hait. Getting students to care about poor children in @ country more than 3,000 miles away was a challenge, she sai ‘She brought photos of her trips and pictures of specific students in need. In response, the students have given her ‘money to buy school supplies, toys and other items. ‘The Clinton conference is also focused on finding ways to get young people engaged in long-term, global problems. it comes just weeks after a YouTube video about the crimes of African warlord Joseph Kony went viral on social media — an example of how social media can be used to galvanize political activism, ‘especially among young people. Clinton was enthusiastic about the wave of interest in the Ugandan human-rights issues that Kony2012 unteashed, despite questions ralsed about whether all of the Information was accurate, “I think it was a real plus that it was made, that It came out," sald Clinton, who noted that the video was. ‘viewed by millions of people and parked discussions about human-rights abuses in Uganda. ‘The Kony video “also opens up, to young people who saw it, the chance to figure out what they could do to help people," Clinton said, .
