This report presents a review of three programmes that were set up to address natural  resource management and disaster risk reduction in the aftermath of the January 2010  earthquake in Haiti. The Government of Norway funds the programmes through the Haiti Reconstruction Fund (HRF). The programmes are:

    United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) and the United Nations Office for
    Project Services (UNOPS);

    Development Program (UNDP) and the Food and Agriculture Organisation
    (FAO); and
