Nerette and Morne Hercule Rehabilitation Project

The reconstruction and rehabilitation of 16 neighborhoods of Nerette and Morne Hercule are funded by United Nation (UNOPS, ILO, UNDP and OIM). These neighborhoods were severely damaged in the 2010 earthquake. The rehabilitation project is designed to facilitate five thousand families living in six camps to find their new homes. On March 12, 2014, a delegation team of 'Haiti Reconstruction Fund' visited the project area to collect data for publishing an informative journal with every achievement under the program. Two days later, a team of the Interministerial Committee for Territorial Planning (CIAT) under the first National Urban Forum (held between March 10 and 17) visited the two neighborhoods of Nérette and Morne Hercule in an appraisal attempt on the investment made so far.


The rehabilitated sites at Nérette that the team of CIAT has visited include playground, solar street lights, community center, water kiosks, basic house structures and signs for merchants of "Ann-Ale" program. In Morne Hercule, they visited Rue Charlemagne Péralte, Bridge Rehabilitation of Delmas 64 and Paix Paix. A visual reproduction of achievements was presented to the visitors at the community center. They witnessed the construction work made so far on ditching of ravines, bank protection of gullies and building retaining walls.

The architect of the project Karine Jadotte Bouchereau who was one of the visiting participants has reported that she had received a lot of positive response and feedbacks from the visitors. However, she further added, a lot remains to be done to establish a complete upliftment in the neighborhood communities. The project managers of the project have explained the necessity of the state to follow the intervention model in other areas where living conditions are scanty.
