HAITI Following the massive destruction of the 2010 earthquake, the World Leadership Alliance - Club de Madrid provided counsel and support to Haitian leaders in support of the country’s process of institutional reconstruction and democratic consolidation. In this sense, support and counsel focused on the need to produce legitimate and stable institutions to more effectively convene efforts for the necessary physical reconstruction; to enhance Haitian leadership’s leverage in ensuring a Haitian-owned reconstruction process and one that is conductive to Haitian self-sufficiency; and to promote political stability as a sine qua non for the investment essential to development and the improvement of the living conditions of millions of Haitians.
