The earthquake in January 2010 turned out to be a catastrophic event, making Haiti the scenario of one of the worst natural disasters of the last decades. Despites the improvements, much work is still needed to reduce poverty and contribute to adequate population wealth.
COOPI has been active in the Country since the very after-earthquake by supporting dispiaced people during the emergency. Moreover, after the cholera epidemic that occurred the same year, COOPI has intervened with hygiene and environment-related projects to prevent the disease from spreading.

To face the calamities hitting Haiti- such as cyclons, floods, earthquakes and drought- we are supporting local authorities (who are key to stimulating growth in the Country) with projects on preparedness and readiness to disasters, aimed to foster both their capability to react and the spreading of prevention culture (see https://sirv-san.cineca.it/ (in italian), http://www.drrmaps-ouest.ht/ and https://www.drrmaps-sud-est.ht/mapBuilder ). A sharp focus on new technologies is a feature of the projects set in Haiti (and in other places as well), such as interactive cartographic systems, alongside the striving to increase awareness about environmental sustainability. Another ongoing intervention consists in a project promoting Haitian culture, developed in close partnership with local artists and universities.
