The earthquake that hit Haiti on 12 January 2010 devastated entire communities leaving over a million homeless. The 16/6 project in Haiti aims to rebuild 16 neighbourhoods and re-house displaced people living in six camps set up after the disaster. Training people in earthquake-resistant construction has been a key part of the joint government-led project, which has brought together the International Labour Organization and other international organizations. The same approach is now being replicated in the Champs-de-Mars square in the centre of Port-au-Prince, Haiti's capital.
