EERI activity in Jacmel region?

February 18, 2010 by  
Filed under Maps, Reports From The Field

Hello all,

I am part of a team from New Orleans who recently returned from Jacmel, Haiti (Louisiana-Haiti Sustainable Village Project).  Damage is not as extensive as PaP, though the area requires a thorough structural assessment.  A preliminary assessment has been completed by various groups including the Canadian military, which are assisting with Jacmel recovery. 

Does anyone know of plans to complete  an assessment of this region?  If so, please reply with contact information.

We are in a position to assist with the documentation of this assessment (specifically in mapping), as we are returning to the region regularly throughout the next 6 months and have established extensive contacts on the ground with local government, NGO’s operating in the region, and local decisionmakers/stakeholders. 

Please contact me through this discussion thread or directly regarding this topic. 

Thank you for your interest and expertise,

Ritchie Katko
