Haiti: Build back better or worse?

Paul Currion writes an interesting and presumably controversial blog about humanitarian aid, humanitarian.info.

Over the last week or so he wrote some particularly compelling articles about the emergency response in Haiti. I won’t claim to have been able to articulate my thoughts on Haiti as well as Paul has, but he’s responding to some questions that were probably lingering in the backs of minds all over the world in the last few weeks. The most obvious question being, “what exactly should be ‘rebuilt’ in Haiti if what existed prior to the earthquake sucked so badly?”

Here are his posts:
