Haiti, Lessons Learned?

Haiti, Lessons Learned?

Three years after a massive earthquake struck Haiti, many critics feel the international community has squandered a historic opportunity of "building back better." Kojo examines the lessons learned -- and unlearned -- in the wake of disaster.

In January 2010, a massive earthquake devastated the island nation of Haiti. In the months and years that followed, billions of dollars were pledged to help rebuild the country's broken infrastructure and government institutions. But three years later, many critics feel the international community has squandered a historic opportunity of "building back better." Kojo examines the lessons learned -- and unlearned -- in the wake of disaster.
