UN Report: In 2010, Public Donors Disbursed USD1.28B for Haitian Rebuilding

Of the USD2.01 billion pledged by 55 public donors for recovery activities in quake-ravaged Haiti in 2010, some USD1.28 billion, or 63.6 percent, has so far been disbursed, a new analysis by the United Nations Office of the Special Envoy for Haiti reveals.

These public sector donors announced their pledges in a conference for the Caribbean nation held on Mar. 31, 2010, in New York.

The USD1.28 billion funding includes USD233 million in budget support; USD 223.6 million in pooled grant funding to the United Nations, Inter-American Development Bank and World Bank; USD688.9 million in grants to the Haitian government, multilateral agencies, non-governmental organizations and private contractors; and USD135.3 million in loans to Haiti.

Apart from their commitments in last year’s donor conference, these public donors released a further USD128.2 million for general development in Haiti.

The analysis does not cover funding for humanitarian activities and pledges by private organizations.
